Slinging the brass-ball bola is an epic sight. It flies over a 100 meters readily where I live

Ghost put up a very informative video on throwing bolas. I need to make another one so I can try it out more. Seems like an excellent weapon.

Wow a ten year old, that is impressive.
Certainly a very nicely made sling.

Can't get enough seeing all the amazing varieties (and artwork) of slings from around the world.  Here's the sling that I used to put one through Goliath's chin (Aiming for the forehead but I'm no David)....

All these years later and still one of the best sling videos I’ve seen! If that is you Tech Stuff, welcome back!

Thanks guys, ripped half a Van Winkle there, but here I am still slinging!  Can't zip those 2-3oz weights out there like I use'ta could, but I can still get the heavier ones motivated.  Got a chrono recently to settle an old dispute over the actual velocity of the grand kids NERF toys,  Wink so thought I'd finally get some numbers up for the sling.  Probably be doing that this weekend.

I'm very glad you are having so much fun with this. It's great to see someone else have as great of an obsession with slings as oneself.

I've tried wrist loops before. I didn't like it. They ended up giving me too many blisters.
