Whoopie sling

Sat at home today so had time to make a sling with the rope I have had sat around waiting for such a day, got to finish the whipping yet though.

Here's a video of how to make one by Nick Araya.

Re: Whoopie sling

Thank's Hadders, It's so simple to splice, I have over 20ft of that rope left if anybody wants one?

Re: Whoopie sling

I wish I could splice.
How much would you want for one?
Also loler?....I'm of a mind to just use the date you splice it as the manufacture and go from there like norm.

Re: Whoopie sling

is that the 22mm stuff you got a while ago mate? You'd have to drop some serious lumps to break that stuff!! Haha.
Knock some loopies up mate there even easier aNd slightly more versatile.

Yeah, got it from the states, , I have loopies and I really like them too but I wanted a whoopie sling for my lowering device as the double braid slings I made up just kept slipping, I have a nice Beech removal next week, right over a garage to test it out on.
