    Cool pics. I have the same set-up as you. I liked the WL Tadpole after I seam sealed it and added d-rings or dutch biners to the slings to keep drips from running down.

    On the sticky whoopie slings - I connect them to dutch biners that are connected to 12 inch loops threaded thru the hammock ends. If the slings are wet I just unhook them from the dutch biners so not to pack them wet with the hammock and un-stick them later.

    Like the others have said - the main thing is to take the pressure off and they should work fine.

    I just tried my whoopies for about the third time this past weekend. I was also having trouble before. I found like the above posters. Grab the bunched end of the hammock and stick under your armpit. Then, lightly grab the whoopied SLEEVE part up by the tree side, where the whoopie separates. PULL the bury part towards the tree. Works great.
    Reverse to tighten. Bunched end under arm, grab the whoopie sleeve NEAR you with one hand and the tail with the other and pull.

    Did you go to horse shoe falls? That area is definately on my "to hike" list sooner than later.
