Bump bump bumpity bump Smiley

As I've just picked up an eyelet and stud fastener set from lidl for a paltry £4.
Thought I'd find the thread that had the cap paul sling templates in.
Here it is.

these are hands down the best pouches around. I'd even venture to say they're even better than my own Smiley
So the people I still owe slings to - you'll eventually be getting at least two Smiley

and for those who wanted smaller pictures:

Thanks. That's a very interesting design. Might have to give that a try.

I've never made or had one but some here consider it the best sling ever invented.

I don't consider it the best sling ever, I know it is. The golf ball pouch is perfect for me, aw I sling rocks.

pics later but I have now made a cap paul analog sling Smiley

Turns out I didn't have the same sort of rivet things in the crimpy kit I bought. So I made the holes bigger and used eyelets instead.

I've been using his sliding leather fingerloop for a while anwyay.

Pics later - but the template works. I've got it as a pdf file that just needs to printed out to a sheet of a4.

Later - working Smiley

I made one of these last night... Tried it out today and it works great. The rivets I used flattened a bit from excess hammering and I used a soft leather. Next time I make another I will use hevier leather.

is there such a thing as excess hammering ?
pdf file attached.

Print out on  asheet of a4 and it's the right size for a general purpose pouch.

updated 6th july 2014. Template is now slightly bigger and totally symmetrical. Printed out on a4 it's perfect for tennis balls and anything smaller.

add cords

The proper cap paul analog must have the sliding leather finger loop to be authentic.
Plus it's hands down the most secure and comfortable design for a finger loop there is. Bar none.

While the pouch might seem too small for something like a tennis ball. The long strips of leather enable it to hold quite large ammo. As well as ammo of an irregular nature. While still keeping the actual pouch itself small enough that it doesn't cause any noticeable drag or air resistance.
The cupped pouch is also suitable for multiple small missiles. Which is fun.

Despite having dozens of slings of different design. My original cap paul has been my edc sling for about 5 years. I've lost count of the release cords I've worn out but it still has the original retention cord and finger loop.
Mind you even that is showing some signs of wear Smiley

Until something truly remarkable comes along. In my opinion This is the best sling design on the planet.

Bump Smiley
I still think it's the best sling design on the planet Smiley

MY simplified sliding findger loop is quicker and easier but just as effective and allows for changing damaged retention cords while re-using the leather finger loop/tab/thingy.

Looks very interesting, I’ll have to try this. Question, I’ve tried finger loops that tighten, and I find them very uncomfortable does it being leather make it more comfortable? Also, I have some small grommets, think they will work well as rivets?
