I would be very happy to have one of those slings, and maybe some of the pita fiber as well. How would you like me to contact you about it?

I decided it would be worth 4 hours to make a 32" version. It shoots amazing.

I think i find it much more easy by trying it myself until i get a good result than trying to understand the description. Also i have raw hemb so i cant really have like 18 strings ;-)
Im on a 3 braid sling now and in kind of looks good to me ;-)
Ill get the pictures up soon.

Go find some sisal garden twine. It is extremely cheap, and braids fairly well. it makes a good practice/experimentation material.

I have hundrets of meter of sisal, but i want to make a balearic out of the raw material not gardentwine. I just finished my hemp sling today.

I have to make it more tight next time. Also i have to scutch it before i start the next one.

The garden twine is for practice.
the fiber is for the real thing.
