Here is another design for a split pouch. This was just a prototype for me to see if it would work.
It's just a sown split pouch with 2 layers of whipping to give the strength. Now leather is no longer needed for the pouch.
It works pretty good. Although I still prefer leather. Next one is going to have stronger cords. These thin natural hemp ones are a bit weary.

new sling for long distance. Paracord / nylon. 75 cm retention cord length.

Edit: just did some slinging with it. The pouch is a bit too stiff for me but I have an idea how to improve it. If my idea won't work I will change to sewing leather on it instead of wipping.

I've improved on my design somewhat, using more material for the pouch (which by default seems to make it flatter). After a brief trial run it seems to be working well

I still need to develop a way to make some rounder braids. I'm looking into 8+ strand braid tutorials.

Thanks. The pouch material is thicker as well, so hopefully it won't lose it's shape from getting wet (as I am generally slinging river stones straight out of the Mississippi). I think the reason my earlier sling ended up with such pronounced cupping is it was much thinner material, and was constantly getting wet, then drying out. It took on a more cupped shape than it started with.

Paracord is a good start but if you really want to braid an 8 strand braid is a good one. 6 strand might be good too and a little easier.

That looks like a nice upgrade though I’m sure that should be a little more forgiving especially on less than perfect ammo.

Why aren't traditional 1 piece leather slings more popular?
I just made one from a belt I had left and I love it !
Slings just like Luis' sling but no whipsnap. It has that same stiffness the balearc slings also have, which prevents tangling (but requires more wrist movement).

I am gonna buy another belt and make a longer, little more refined one.

(pouch here is dark due to wet tennisballs).

Here is a picture of this sling I made yesterday. Its kinda similar to the one from Cliff's woven paracord sling tutorial but the cords are not permanetly attached to the pouch and was made with 6 pieces of cord  and 3 pieces of twine. It's not a beauty but works really well for me.
