Good style Ulrica, for the limitations of indoors. Outdoors, you have to open more the arm bacwards in the final whirl to get a good momentum in the throwing.
You are an advanced beginner Wink


Hallo Hondero!

Yeah, I was afraid of hitting something here, I don┤t have enough space. And just the final throw makes me problems sometimes. I know in my head how I want to do it; When the stone is right back, I want to move my hand straight ahead against the "target" and when I┤m finisched my arm shall point right ahead. That is not so easy to do..... yet  Grin

Thanks for the nice word, they makes me grow!

Ulrica,

Your wind-up looked GREAT!  Did you ever throw a baseball?  If so, I'd like to suggest that you try to wind up in just the same way as you did in the video, but instead or bringing it around and forward naturally and sideways on the release stroke, to rather to step forward whenh the pouch is exactly behind you and pitch the stone overhanded with full force of your weight going forward into the power stroke of your shot, just like sithcing a baseball, passing an american football or throwing a spear or paper aeroplane.  It's the same motion, and will ad even more power and consistency to your release stroke, while not changing your windup until the release stroke.

Looking good Ulrica!

Some of you might have to right click the link (control click on Mac with single button mouse) and select something along the lines of "Save link as" or "Save target as" or "Download link to disk".   Save it some where convinient.  You need Windows Media Player to run the movie.  Mac users, you will probably need to download it.

Dear Ulrica,

I also noticed another thing you might want to try, which helped me that also might give you more comfort and power/accuracy potential when throwing.  If you treat both cords as one, pinching them boith together, bringing the anchoring cord crossing naturally up from the anchoring finger in FRONT of your palm straight up across the index finger to the pinching thumb, just like the release cord, it will prevent fouling and take the release pressure off of the back/sides of your middle finger, making it easier and safer to sling harder and harder.  I also prefer a wrist loop which makes this sort of habit more natural, neccesary and automatic, and the wirst can absorb mor pull and punishment than any single finger can!  A mistake that would merely skin, or jerk the wrist hard could snap a finger completely broken!

Hallo Magnumslinger,

Thank you so much for your advice! I will copy them so I really can memorize and try it outdoors when the weather allows it.

No, I have never trown a baseball, at least I can not remeber it. Maybe I touch one in School loooong time ago. I can understand how you mean, and I will try it!

by your second post; you mention another way to hold the Cords; it was some new words for me, but I will translate it at home.

Thank you again for all your advice!!!
