    Swoosh... You still need huggers with the whoopie sling. The sling simply makes adjustments between your huggers and your hammock a breeze. And generally lighter.

    I did a video on whoopie slings and UCRs. Even has a cameo appearance by shug. No rapping though

    It ought to help you get your head around those slings.

    I moved from biners and cinch buckles to dutch clips and slings, and am I ever pleased. Lightened and simplified my effort tremendously. Now I am curious about the whole continual ridge line thing. Thanks Opie for the slings and thanks Grizz for your vids explaining the marlin spike hitch, etc. I am hanging this weekend in the woods with it. Have hung on the front porch and I can tell it is going to be a huge improvement. Eliminated 4 biners, and two cinch buckles.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    These have interested me enough to make a set. I have 25' of amsteel on order from AHE and I have a friend of my dad's making a pair of dutch-clip esque clips. I should be more than set for this year's camping needs. Thanks for the easy-to-follow tutorial!

    Only 25'? I got enough to do a set for my wife's and my hammocks. I wish I would have gotten more. Whoopieslings are fun to build and I am finding I could use more super-strong small diameter cord for just about everything.
