    looking for rope/cord to make mini whoopie slings

    I am looking for some rope/line to make mini whoopie slings. It won't be carrying a huge load, maybe 100 lbs. I need alot of it, so it would be great if it wasnt too expensive! Any suggestions? Thanks! STEVE

    zing-it http://www.reddenmarine.com/samson-rope-zing-it.html

    lash-it http://www.reddenmarine.com/samson-rope-lash-it.html

    Either one can be used to make mini whoopies and both are hollow.

    Lash-it is grey and zing-it is yellow.

    I've actually used braided mason's line with success. And really cheap too! Zing-it/Lash-it would be great as well!

    I just picked up some lash-it from West Marine. You'll probably have to have them order it since most of their stores don't stock it. Also, take a print out of Redden Marine's price and they will match it. This could save you some money if you can avoid paying for shipping.

    It will work for prussicks. It's a little slippery so you might have to put an extra wrap or two. Also, many people find that a Klemheist Knot holds a little better.
