    Slap Straps

    Hi everyone
    I'm a newbie this year I've spent a couple of nites in Ga. by Neal's gap and a night in San Bernardino Mtns in Ca. and in my back yard in Mi. Loving everything about Hammocks. I was wondering about my slap straps they seem to stretch is there better straps I could be using.
    Thanks

    Check out strapworks.com. They can make strap any way you want them. They are very helpful and made strap similar to the slap straps

    Whoopieslings.com! You can get whoopies and straps. I had slap straps and ended up waking up to my butt on the ground a few times before I bought whoopies. The crap slaps are made of nylon so they stretch. You want polyester straps.

    I love my diy whoopie slings, see youtube for videos on how to make them. There are a million different ways, give or take 9000, that you can hang your hammock. Half the fun if finding the different ways and testing them out
