i think someone made a tut sling with multiple colors- i think regular jute then a bit of died purple jute.

my first actual accomplishment was done with hemp. it worked pretty well. i like it a lot. i sadly have not been able to use it yet and ive had it for weeks.  this was my first time using hemp. its a good material but slightly stiff.  i was thinking of make it next with that nylon mason line but idk now. its an awesome looking sling though.  fun to make.

Gave this loop pouch thing a try and found it a bit more difficult than just weaving a split pouch as you build the sling. Instead of going with the eight inches Matthias used, I tried six and when it was all over with, ended up with a 2 x 4.75" pouch. Most of my slings have that exact pouch length, but I was going for a longer one here.

I also had a hard time getting it symmetric and as you can see, did not succeed. I still think that making up a bunch of pouches might be a good idea. Nothing easier than attaching a couple of cords with a larkshead. Oh yeah, it took me four hours, not one. That could be the learning curve.  Anyway, the next one will be eight inches long and perfectly symmetrical - or you guys won't see it!

The same pouch with cords. I like braiding the cords from the pouch out. No finger loop to braid or weave!

nice, is the pouch restricting in any way? I'm used to my slits being adjustable like rockman slings, or pouches with a wide capability like Aussies

Not too much adjustment there. It's basically just a two inch gash. You can spread it a little, but not too much. Definately not like a Rockman or Aussie split pouch. Tried tennis balls, but lost a few on figure 8's. Lost one rock winding up for my helicopter, but i've also managed that with my other slings.

What I like about this sling is that it is light, fast and I hit more consistently with it than any other except for maybe my reverse twist paracord/leather pouch sling. Don't know why. Like it enough to build another one. This time i'm going to try a larger pouch. Like seven inches so i'll end up with a pouch a little over 6" overall.

Et cetera pointed out this old thread so now bringing this interesting sling design to the top. Unusual in that the pouch is made separately so if you make a mistake on the cord lengths not all your work is wasted. The link is also included in the FAQ now.

Despite my almost superhuman powers as a moderator, putting something in the G&A Section is beyond even me. Also it must be in the form of an article not just a thread. You may of course, suggest it to Chris yourself.

bump

been thinking about making a separate pouch myself
with maybe d-rings or keyring circles at the ends for quick change to different lengths

i'd like to make a pouch frame/support from a single length of paracord and then weave the paracord

just have to find the right pouch frame/support design

where's my scrap paper ?

this already is made from one piece of cord, but not as thick as paracord. not sure if it will work. the method here has the cord looped into 3 large loops, then hooked up. the stray ends are hidden under the weave.
