    Nevermind, I just watched it again and noticed what I missed. Looks like you have a loop on each end of the strap instead of one, and you just larks headed the fixed eye of the sling to the loop on the strap, n'est pas?

    In that case, you'd have to make sure you trust the splice strength of the fixed eye, I wager.

    Sign me up for the first pair that goes out to scandinavia These Biners would be great - less than 10grams penalty over toggles, and help me not to forget the treehuggers.

    Anybody know of any vendors stocking the "long eyed" whoopieslings for the setup in the video?

    You got it ... lark's head ... and well ... no more than I"d trust it in a lark's head on my hammock ... so yeah. I've either gotten my Whoopee's from Opie, Arrowhead Equipment or recently make them myself (lots of fun).

    Another great quality video Hawk-Eye. Oh that Dutch, he's quite the inventor. Just when you thought nothing could ever beat a Dutch Clip...
