Good observation!  In fact, in the Geoffrey Budworth book from which I learned the Ashley Stopper Knot, Budworth says, "A characteristic of the completed knot is a neat trefoil of three overlapping parts on its underside."

So yes, if you've done the knot correctly, you look at the bottom and what you see should look a bit like my "peace knot" avatar.

Here's a bump, to let you know that I just finished e-mailing the contents of this tutorial to Chris, so that it may be included (if he decides to) as an article in the How-To section of Slinging.org.

Thank you for the encouragement.  I'm very happy that these instructions have helped some of you make some handsome slings.  Smiley  I'll be very proud and flattered if they end up posted alongside the excellent tutorials that are already on the site.

Nice work, PJ. I still have a lot of nylon which will become a nice sling from this instructions.

Well, I e-mailed the contents of the tutorial, with the pictures.  Now it's just up to the big boss.  He said that it might be a little while before he can get to it.  But I've waited this long... heh, I should be able to wait a few more weeks.  It's not like the tutorial isn't available here in this thread, for now.  Wink

Here's my attemp at a 5 strand pouch. I used some nylon instead of paracord and I need a bigger diameter, but got the idea of what to expect. I got a cupped pouch perfect for a spherical projectile. Now I see why you like to use golf balls, this sling is great for that. I messed up the second knot but it's still functional.

I still need to try it, wish I had some golf balls.

Slings and bows are cool even if they are old-fashioned so don't judge it!

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.
