    I'm thrilled with my whoopie mod from Arrowhead Equipment!! (Not spam and I don't work for them. Just good stuff at good prices and they seem like genuine folks.)

    My backyard hammock has had a woopie on on end and a UCR on the other. Today I took the UCR off and replaced it with a line with an eye splice on one end for an attachment point. The other end loops around the marlin spike hitch and is secured and adjusted with by a prussik knot and figure 9.

    Be careful. Your average Fig.9 isn't rated for holding a lot of weight.
    Good luck,

    +1 on this. Love my AHE whoopies... simple, ultra light weight, and insanely strong- plus to see your ground dwelling friend's faces when they see you hanging from such thin cords is worth it.

    Totally I would get them if my poor college student funds allowed me to. They are sold in full sets I would suggest going to smokebaits and oppies website and buying their all in one set.

    Or you can make one yourself. I personally am extremely lazy and would just buy one.

    I put whoopies on my Eno DN this weekend and was amazed. I use some straps I had from my climbing days. Tied a fig 8 loop for the choker then used a caribiner on the loose end to hook it to my whoopies.This has removed all the sag I had from the other set up.
    Now it's time for a radge line! Whoopies are simple, crazy easy to adjust and light. Love them!
