Adjustable Whoopie and Loopie Slings

Loopie Slings are adjustable continuous loop slings made from Samson Tenex rope that makes knotless rigging possible. One of the most popular uses of this sling is to attach a block at the top of the tree without having to tie a knot. Available in multiple lengths, this is a great item for rigging secondary pulleys, redirects, and multiple anchors to help loading on the main pulley.

Whoopie Slings are made from 12-strand polyester Tenex rope & designed for knotless rigging. One eye is fixed and the other is adjustable, with one end of the spliced rope passing through the center of the hollow core. Set the choker and shorten the eye to adjust length. When weight is applied to the sling, the outer core tightens on the rope.

Multi-Braid Loopie and Whoopie Slings are made from Marlow's Multi-braid rope which is very durable, resistant to picking, and an excellent sling material.
