    Whoopie slings for DN.

    Can anyone point me inthe direction where I can purchase everything I need to convert my Dn to Whoopie slings? Including a ridgeline.

    Thanks

    I just converted my ENO DN to Whoopie Slings. I bought them at AHE (arrowheadequipment.com). It was the Marlin Spike System. Cost about 22 dollars. That included the whoopies and straps, no ridgeline.

    Besides the whoopieslings, there are also UCR's, Utility Constrictor Rope, available at http://dutchwaregear.com/
    UCR's are made with the same amsteel and are the lighter cousin to the whoopiesling.

    Or you can throw caution to the wind and go with SGT Rock's system of UCR using zing-it. (your gonna die) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch-bq...yer_detailpage

    You can also get cordage for your RL, ridgeline, there and make it like a whoopiesling or UCR for adjustability.

    Or you can go the DIY route and follow these easy instructions to make your own whoopies! I loved this thread, and it was suuuper easy. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ead.php?t=9349
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    I actually made mine a little bit longer than these, just so I could go a little further if I needed to.

    And for my ridgeline I just made an extra-long whoopie! it's adjustable from around 85"-110", but my preferred sag is right around 95"-96".
