Lakeslinger, superb looking slings.

Jlasud, did you paint some of your glandes black or are they made of iron? Also, would you take a picture of the molds? I am considering making some.

The black ones are lead too,they're just for distance slinging,so i can see them in flight much better,than grey.

I made a fingerloop with the Maricopa weave that Teg posted. It takes a long time to make but the result is quite  good. This is two parallel strands bending round to become a four cord round braid. The Maricopa weave is done between the two loop strands and the loose ends were bound to the main braid with west country whipping.

Just got some great loose sisal fibres in from Mr. Livermore. Smiley
Haven't started braiding it yet, but I can already tell this stuff is leagues better than the crap I was stuck with before. Oooooooh, the potential....

I liked my seatbelt sling so much I made another one. Smiley
This time the pouch is 190mm long and the paracord stopped with stevedore knots for added peace of mind. The webbing ends are coated in PVA glue as is the pouch whipping. The release knot is a threefold overhand and the finger loop is a figure of eight.
