    Just a small comparison of two sets of AHE made whoopees ... a set of 7/64th whoopees from AHE weigh 1.3 ozs. A special set of 1/8th whoopees .... both with 3 foot longer tail loops (an additional 6 feet of amsteel) weighs only 2.5 oz .... 1.2 ozs heavier ... take away the additional 6 foot of amsteel and ... well less than 1 oz difference.

    Gotta be a real wiennie to whine about that

    I am well over 300 and hang from 7/64 fine. Although I use 1/8 because I am still scared out of my mind that I am going to hit the ground even though technically I know I am fine.

    Nothing wrong with playing it safe. There's little weight penalty for going with 1/8 but plenty of peace of mind.
