That is great... I will apply that method to my future slings. I see what you mean by rolling leather. I was thinking about a way to get rid of it, that seems to be the way.

Here a hemp sling, approx 60 cm, that I put together in 20 minutes or so. I like these quick to make rough traditional looking designs.  It slings well.  I put it through a quick test of about 50 throws or so and it's still holding together  Cheesy

Looks good Jauke!  I really like the "distressed" leather look.  Question, are you just making all these slings you've been posting, or are they ones you've had?

75cm Sisal splice sling out of 6mm twine made up out of three, 2 mm twines, I will probably still cut the part after the release knot a bit shorter overall.

I finished another sling a couple days ago.  Like the last one I made, this one is also a combination of hemp and linen. I had it out for about 3 dozen throws yesterday.  I'm not 100% sold on it yet, but so far I really like the combination of different fibers.

It ain't target practice if you keep hitting.

I gave a little "twist" to one of my methods to make this kind of solid pouched slings.
