Thank you peacefulljeffray for your build-along!

Just made this one yesterday evening while watching tv

...

I tried it this morning, and it worked wonderfully  Cheesy

Joseph Curwen?

The Joseph Curwen?

I thought he was turned into a pile of fine, bluish-grey dust!  Grin


I'm glad you had success in making the five-strand woven paracord sling, and that it's working well for you.
Enjoy!

P.S.  Leave the remains of our Founding Fathers alone, all right?!

I was just talking with my friend Dr. Marinus Bicknell Willett about the recent midnight disturbances in the local graveyards.

But you claim to have been out of the country... Friends of yours, then?  Wink

I made one of these and it came out way better than I thought it would!

I'm usually all thumbs.  Wink

It's tannish green paracord, and I can't figure out how to post images so just view it in your mind's eye!
Grin

Thanks for the great walkthrough.

You're quite welcome.

I'm thrilled that this design and build-along are giving people such good results!  Cheesy

hi - i just "salvaged" a hundred one-inch ball bearings (65 grams or 2.3 oz) which my sling can't handle since it's a split pouch design. yours looks ideal for steel balls, i look forward to trying it out. thanks!

Shocked

You can't possibly know how much I wish I could just stumble across a hundred 1-inch bearings as "salvage"!!

This design should work perfectly!

Have fun!

I have just come back from a weekend in a lovely Shropshire valley with some close friends and introduced some of them to the joys of slinging.
After looking at the few slings I had brought along they all decided to make one.

Which one you ask?

Well it was none other than the 5-Strand Woven Pouch.

Congrats to Mr Peaceful Jeffrey for providing an easy to make nice looking sling. We had lots of fun slinging Snowballs and Crab Apples across the valley and DEFINATELY NOT  Wink trying to hit the LLamas which a local farmer had in a field by the river below us  Grin

Sorry no photos available as my watch, phone and keys etc were banished and/or turned off.

You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.&&&&Remember - You are unique.............just like everybody else.

Peacefuljeffrey, you are the man.  Your instructions are so easy even a dsylexic like me can do it.  I'm used to tying a three strand sling... so why not make it a fiver.  Good job, sir!

Btw, if Joseph Curwen has returned, I'm going to really practice my slinging aim.  I wonder if a sling rock would have any effect on him?  Maybe if it were soaked in holy water or something like that.... scary stuff.

My place is beginning to get a little weird with all the loaded slings hanging around. Dampened the pouch on this one, placed a perfect throwing stone in the pouch and hung it up for a while. It has a really nice cupped shape.

Looks nice! I gotta make one. Shoot! I was going to ask Stormdrane if he could make a sling, but you beat me to it. His blog is great!
I'll try to make one and post pictures if I can.

Oh, if you don't have a fancy dancy titanium spike like Mr. peacefuljeffery, you can use a knitting needle  Smiley
