    I found some door hinge pins at Lowe's for #.68 for four of them, in 3.5" or $4"

    I thought this was pretty efficient and secure.

    I cut apart an old broken trekking pole and it works just fine. You can also just use sticks you find on the ground, if the right thickness.

    I meant $.68 for four of them and as for weight, they are right at 21 grams a piece

    Like Firemedic says. I got some carbonfiber cutoffs for free (that's arrows not daisy-dukes.)

    I attached them to the whoopie sling by tying a prussic knot in a locked loop with a tail. I threaded the tail through a hole I drilled in the side of the arrow shaft and tied a knot in it. Then I sealed all the cut ends with a little fingernail polish to keep splinters from peeling off.
