However, Samson calls for a 3.5 fid length bury for the adjustable loop of a whoopie (which doesn't really apply since both ends of the constrictor are under tension vs one end on a UCR). For 2mm Dynaglide, this works out to ~6". The maker of Dynaglide, New England Ropes only calls for a 1.5 fid length bury (which I won't be using for whoopies).
And yes, a UCR's bury needs to be longer than a whoopie's since one end is not tensioned well.
