    First attempt at Whoopie Sling

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to post and let all who were thinking about making their own whoopie slings but were a little aprehensive in doing so. I just made my first one out of 7/64 amsteel and it was a piece of cake. I just watched the you tube video of the whoopie sling creation and, well, it was easier than I thought it would be. So get out there and start making your own - it was fun and satisfying.

    If I can do it any one can!!!!!!

    With all the instruction available on youtube and from the Samson instructions (pdf) it's really a project most people can handle and it's lots of fun. Welcome to the club.

    Yeah it was definitely fun. Just to be able to make your own stuff and know that it works. Quite rewarding. And yes there is a lot of information out there that made it easier. Thanks. And again "Huh?"
