    Help with whipping...Whoopie Slings

    For a few days I was able to observe first hand some neat sliding whipping made of Speer no-tangle on some Amsteel whoopie slings from Grizz. Their function was to slide up the whoopie sling to better insure the loop end didn't slip off the toggles. 'Twas very slick and elegant!

    I don't have his excellent work any more to observe as a model, so I'm hoping that he or some other knot-knowledgeable person can point me to a "how-to" to make such a whipping that can slide up and down my whoopie slings.

    I believe the term was "scarab", and it's just some "Solomon bar" hitching, which is just overhand knots tied around the whoopie.
    Hopefully that makes sense...

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    I thought I posted this earlier, but it doesn't show....

    I used a whipping knot. I think this document was my guide.
