There can be many reasions why you do not understand what I mean, e.g. my bad description.

Basically we understand as much the old texts as you did understand my text.  Cheesy They are talking about one and about three cords or something similar. It is not clear from the text if there are three separate cords/ropes or if a cord is made/braided from three threads. When you look at depictions of slings there is an Etruscan sling which looks very similar to the braided sling shown in Bollinger's guide. The difference is that the pouch is not made from two, but from three strings. (Besides the missing knots the pouch looks similar to Lund's simple string sling.) Another type is seen often esp. on later depictions: a single strap of material without any slits and splits. Here the pouch (and everything else) is one "cord". That would fit the textual description of one/three something.

I just made A very effective strip sling from leather. It is 42 inches long from the center. Half a inch wide except the center wich is three inches wide. On one end I have a 5 inch slit in the center of that end, to use as a wrist loop

Aye curamba!

That is confusing....

So the archaic sling is a regular split pouch, Etruscan a split pouch with an extra string in the center, and Balearic a woven pouch or woven strap sling?  Just want to make sure I have these seperated correctly, because I want to make one of each for a display....

Also, do you mind giving me the references to each of the various types so I can look them up myself? 

Thanks,
Adam C.

It is asumed that Archaean == Etruscan (three cord split pouch) and Balearic == "pouchless" strap. All is seen in Voellings article. It is probably not allowed to copy it, but I will make drawings.

i recently found a kid's bible book with a story about the david and goliath.  in it, there are some pretty detailed drawing of the sling that he is depicted as using.  the sling appears to be a strip sling with a pocket attached, without interupting the strip at all.  i will post pics when the other computer(and its scanner) is up and running again.

Based on Dan's braiding guide I made an Etruscan (possibly Archaean) sling. Main cords are with 12 strings like in Dan's description, but around the pouch I inserted another 18 strings. So the pouch consists of two outer straps with 12 strings each and one middle strap with 6 strings. The detailed description is at http://www.mbsks.franken.de/slinging/slinging.html#EtruscanSling . Photos of the sling will be available around monday.

That is a nice piece of sling you have there.
So it did work in the end.

Yes, thanks. I got faster and got it more even at the end. I think the time for 10cm was at the end 20 minutes. But I still think having tablet woven once is enough.

It might be the weight or air drag, but I just did a quick test, so it could also just be that I am not used to it.
