    CHEAP Whoopies and Straps

    Looking for a set of tree straps and whoopie slings.
    The cheaper the better.

    Just looking to throw together a hammock to keep in my truck and these are the items im missing.

    Thanks!

    I have -A- superfluous whoopie sling I can send you, but I would suggest checking out the DIY section and learn to make your own. It's extremely easy, and you'll never have to rely on somebody else's slings, plus it can be applied to making a ridgeline. The Amsteel is pretty cheap, too (at about $65/ft in some cases, I think) so for 20' of cord, you're looking at about $15?

    many times Whoopies are offered in the Pay it Forward thread.
    you only have to have a minimum of 50 posts.

    I got my straps at StrapWorks on line.
    They sewed a loop on each end for no extra charge.
    it was either 6 or 10 bucks.

    If you got the DIY route.. DIYGearSupply was $.25/ft, and I found the shipping was cheaper.
