    Big Pappi, your whoopies only have about a 6" bury in them. To my knowledge 14" is recommended and the 6" held you just fine. I'm certain whoopies will hold anyone, and would assume the hammock would fail before the whoopies.

    Opie, how's the stretch with them dynaglides? None at all?

    I'll let Opie tell ya first hand but the stretch factor for Dynaglide is very low. Specs given from New England Rope's website are at 10% of the line's 1000 pound tensile strength, stretch is only .4%. At 20% of tensile strength it is only like .75%. At 30% it is only 1%.

    So there is very little stretch indeed.

    No stretch that I can notice. My butt stretch-om-eter hasnt been calibrated though.

    And I only do it cause its cool.. Makes everyone ask questions and then I get to snicker while I ignore them.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    I use a DN with whoopies and 2" seatbelt straps from strapworks. Whoopies hook to the straps with a marlin spike hitch made of 3/4" red oak dowel. I'm about to replace the stock carabiners with amsteel soft shackles.

    Well I am now a Whoopie sling user. They are so sweet, I could not be happier with them they work better that I could have imagined. So for any of you bigger hangers out there that are thinking about getting them. Take it from a believer here and get them you will not believe what a difference they will make in your hammocking.

    Good to hear, Bigbogg!

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
