Title: Hello From Pennsylvania
Post by Flint Austone on Jul 22nd, 2018 at 10:19pm
Greetings Everyone,

I am Flint. I took up slinging several weeks ago because I broke my slingshot. Needless to say, I am absolutely hooked on slinging now, as well as constructing slings out of any natural or synthetic materials I get my hands on. I'm normally more of a lurker than an active forum member, but the community here seems pretty nice, so here I am.

I'll end my intro here, but if anyone has any questions for me, I'll be around.

Welcome from Finland! That sling looks really nice. I still haven't properly nailed a woven pouch. It's on the To Do list.

Thank you! I've come to learn that my woven pouches are only as good as my patience.

I'm just above you in Western NY. We'll have to get together someday.

If you're next to Erie, that only about 2-2.5 hours north of me. I'm just a bit south of Pittsburgh.

Can not see your sling. Can you shrink it. Please ;)

Sure thing. Do you know what size would work best here?

Near Buffalo, so not that far. Maybe there's a place halfway?

Thanks guys! This sling has become sort of my signature style I like to make. Its probably been done before, but I started it like a jute rockman only I wove a hemp basket pouch instead of a split. Add some leather and sinew and BAM! I'll be making more like this for trades so keep an eye out. I'll post them up once I have a few made.
