Hi Guys,
I am relunctant to post this photo since all of you have put a lot of time, thought, and effort into your slings, but just in case someone wants to get started right away I'll post it anyway.  Took me about an hour to make and cost about $2.50 U.S.

I can't figure out how to send the images so I guess you will have to take my word for it.

G'day fellow slingers. Never having posted pics on the web before (yes I know, hard to believe isn't it?)
I thought I might give it a go here and see if I can get it to work.

I did give one of my early pattern Balearic slings to a Russian Co-worker for christmas. Along with some slinging stuff in russian.
but I don't think it's quite the same thing.

cheers dude,

I was just messin' 'round with some designs and this one actually worked; the knots form a natural pouch shape. This one was just a prototype, I made longer one out of jute, which works great; better than a split pouch, eh?

i get great spin with this sling.......paper balls and regulation baseballs.
during the few moments when my techniqe is good, it nails the target hard.

these are a couple of pics of my first sling. its a modified version of Zorro's medical tape design. made of 2.25 inch medical tape of course some tread and two pieces of nylon rope(# 15 i think????) with a total of about 72 inches (183cm). it has a tripple split design. i'm not sure how much longer it will last. as soon as i get my other slings made i will retire it Sad

...
...

i'm in the process of the last steps of my second sling and in the planning of my third. i've been thinking about the hand woven split-pouch design Grin

i made one up about a week or two ago out of some of the leather that C_A so generously sent me.  it is a prototype design that i think will work well (haven't had a chance to use it yet)  i intentionally used double cords.

Greetings

Hurrigate, IMHO it's all about the slings performance and not about how it actually looks. My favorite sling before I retired it was made from old leather bootlaces and a piece out of another old boot..

but your sling is a nice basic model that should do everything you ask of it

Hey bcerus,
Once I got my ammuntion issue straightened out, I started using Landscape Marble Chunks, Eventually went to Landscape River rock, they seem to fly better.

No Problem.
This way you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Until I figured out it was the weight of the ammunition Slinging was a very frustrating experience for me
