hey pj, is stormdrane the same stormdrane from instructables that made the paracord bracelet tutorial?



Yes he is.  The guy is the Gandalf of paracord projects.  I have long thought I was good; he is better.  Shocked


tell him i said hi- no wait, i can do that on instructables  Grin



Well, there was an idiot nitpicking moderator on EDCforums who banned me (over frivoulous nonsense, I can assure you) so I can't say hi for you to Stormdrane there, unfortunately.

I tested out my new Rat Man Sheep Shank Sling, and I have good news: no dropped rocks, easy design, and increased distance in my throws.  It's going to be a favorite in my arsenal.

Seriously, I threw like 40 stones with this thing, and not a single mishap.  I say experiment: success.

I was wondering why you were banned, I couldnt imagine you doing anything that would get you banned. Is there anyway to appeal it?

Not to be dismissive of the rules of a forum, but I feel that there was a moderator there who, for no particular reason I know of, seemed to just like to send me PMs telling me that nonsensical stuff I had posted had stepped over what he perceived to be "the line."  I pretty much never agreed--and tell me, do I seem like someone who wants to just come into a good and worthwhile forum and piss all over everything and just irritate people?  I don't think I do.  I spend my own time to come up with worthwhile contributions, myself.

I have no way to "appeal" the decision because once you're banned, it's not like you can send PMs to the site administrator or anyone.  I imagine there were probably quite a few people there who saw that I was banned and thought, "Huh??"  But what can ya do?

You got to the right place, bro. This is "An active thread where you may post a reply." Sorry it's not what you were looking for. Try this PJ Sling on for size. To may a TS3 sling follow Jeffrey's instructions starting with 3 strand in the pouch instead 5 like the pictures. If you have trouble visualizing that make an Appu-sling and then uses Jeffrey's tutorial to fill in the pouch.

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

Hi, biface;
   That is a tutorial, sort of.  It goes on a bit because I was figuring out a problem as I went along and had no idea that the thread was going to be a tutorial.  If you read through the whole thing you'll find that the sling as it was, Malik Lund's Appu-sling but woven instead of left open, had a tendency to occasionally drop projectiles.  A  good solution was found... if you pull the strands really tight as you weave so that the pouch forms a permanent "U" when completed it will not drop projectiles.  Due to it's thinness, this is the fastest sling with the best range that I've  found.  I hope this answer isn't confusing.  If you need more help with this you can PM me or I can send you one so you can see what I'm talking about.
