    The silicone tube isn't required. I could probably save ~1 - 2 grams by not having them. But I found the drag the tube creates helps keep the bury milked out to it's proper length required to create the tension to hold the cord out. Whoopie slings don't have this problem.

    I'm working on it. Maybe an Indian Guru can teach me to levitate.

    Wow--nice write-up and nice video, too. I'm impressed, Sarge. I've been following you for years and still use some of your camp kitchen ideas. Thanks for posting this!
