    The video Raul posted earlier in this thread was made by Opie, the former owner of whoopieslings.com. The video I referenced earlier I just found on you tube.

    man, Shug's an a whole other plain of ultralight weight 5 or 6 oz is a good deal of weight!
    If there's two ways to take my comments, assume it's the lighter and funnier of the two.

    This is easily fixed with some DutchBiners and DutchClips (allthough this is heavier than a dual pair of nacra´s)

    I'm probably gonna give this a whirl just to save on the bulk of the WB straps. In the past I was worried about leaving the tree straps behind. Not anymore with this setup!
