Title: My Slinging Videos

I just received my first and new GoPro today. But after slinging I discovered I recorded this in the wrong screen aspect ratio, without hyperstabilization on and with only 30 FPS instead of 60 FPS. So next slinging video is going to be shot in 16:9, 60 FPS and Hyperstabilization, which should be much better and allow you to see the projectiles more clearly, and much less shaky.

I will get a round metal plate and set up a decent target as well. This was just a test video trying to figure out my new cam.
But I am especially curious about the hyperstabilization feature, it's what this camera is all about. I hope I can do some testing later tomorrow.

As you can see at the end I was just slinging randomly against the wall.

That wall !  looked like you were slinging mostly into the trees.

If you look where you want to throw at release - you'll probably throw straighter :-)

The follow through definitely indicates you're throwing off to the left.

Nice video.  That's definitely an interesting recording method to use.  Although I think I still prefer a third person perspective.

Another video

First slinging some golf balls at a target, but with little power so I wouldn't lose them. Distance to target varied from 10 to 15 meters. Rest of the video is just slinging badly shaped stones, which are useless for good accuracy. I used an Aussie pouch sling. Currently, I am all out of clay projectiles.

I changed the title of this thread from ''Slinging Clay Balls'' to ''My Slinging Videos''

Here is another video from slinging yesterday:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_VPXoQfmpA

Slinging with a short 58 cm sling, no mistakes edited out. Target is a metal plate. I hit it 2 times, some close shots, some flying wildly often too much to the left and some bad releases. Overall I am very happy with the result considering the very bad, jagged rocks. I have no other disposable ammo currently available. I first doubted whether I should do target slinging with them. I wore a glove to prevent blisters.

At the end I swapped to a longer sling for a few shots, but my camera angle was too low. I did some comparisons and it indeed felt as if I could get more power out of the longer 77 cm sling at the cost little accuracy. It felt easier to throw hard, but slightly harder to aim. It seems I have misjudged how effective a short sling is for me, so I think I will go back to a medium sling.

How do you get accuracy? ::)

Mostly by intuition I think. The younger you start the easier it is . I started slinging when I was around 12. I am by far no professional, although I believe I can become quite good if I had more opportunity to sling. Accuracy doesn't come in a day, so give your brain time to process what you learned. Next day you'll be better at it.

And of course the right equipment. The right sling length and pouch. Same weight/size/shaped ammo is best. Develop your own style. Throw how you like the most. For me it is a helicopter/Balearic hybrid.

Well all in all it's probably only a few months' worth of days that I actually slung in those years, if that sentence makes sense.
