Cliff, this is a great tutorial, would you consider submitting it to my wiki? http://Klippe.funditor.org . If you're interested, let me know, and I'll do the work of moving the pictures and such.

Thanks,

I wonder how fast you could build one in the field from making natural fiber cordage to fully assembled. My guess would be about half a day if you already had located some good fiberous plants.Stinging nettle or dogbane(indian hemp) would really work well to make a field expediant sling like this. It doesn't require massive amounts of cord like some others i have seen. More streamlined as well, really looks like a winner.

Thanks for the compliments.  Cando, you are more than welcome to use my tutorial, or any of the content.  I could do the transferring of it if you want, but not until this weekend.

Cliff,
That's awesome, thank you very much. If you don't mind, I changed some wording to make it more encyclopedic. If you want to add some sort of credit (name, website, whatever) please feel free to do so. you can check it out here http://funditor.110mb.com/wiki/index.php/Making_a_Woven_Sling

If anyone else wants to contribute, please go for it!


Thank you,

CanDo

        This is great I think this should be a sticky topic for newcomers.  Smiley
It should also be in the guides and articles section on the homepage!

Given the slingfest newspaper postings have just been removed to reduce the stickies on the forum that does not seem likely to me. Guides and Articles - I'm sure it's being considered.

Chris has recently made a request for new articles, and I am submitting this one.

Cando, I saw this on your wiki a while ago, that was quick.  I'm glad that this seems to be helping some people out.

Very nice job, Cliff. 


If you don't mind me saying so, after looking at your post several times I've come to the conclusion that the pouch of your sling reminds me of Rattle Snake rattles.

(Thumbs up!)

This is my build-along for a simple sling with a woven pouch, as shown below:


Ok I feel stupid.  I've tried doing this a couple times and keep getting a mess.
On the first picture, the brown is on top, the second picture shows green on top. 

In the close up pictures, can you ID which side of the cord is the knot/loop ends?

Grin  It DOES!


I use Cliff's design when I go slinging far more than I use my own--in large part because it's so much easier and faster to make Cliff's design than it is to make mine.

For those who use Cliff's design, and want to know how many turns to use,
I altered this photo of one of my own slings to show you where I count from.

The segment identified by the lines is 11 turns.  I count from that "first" turn on the left
that emerges from under the short segment seen going left-to-right.  I count to the last turn
before the split part of the pouch joins together again.

Formula:
- for Golf Balls: 11 turns (10 and 12 also work)
- for Tennis Balls: 16 to 18 turns
- for Racquetballs: 14 turns

Note that these figures are for using 7-strand Paracord,
and will vary if the thickness of your cord varies.
