Hi David I'm a newbie. Awesome slings there. I hope to start off with a simple sling made from leather and cord. Marsh-mellows interesting, can you sling such light projectiles effectively, what kind of range can you get? Just curious  Smiley

I like to use the really BIG marshmallows.  At short ranges--10 to 20 feet--they have excellent velocity.  The smaller ones don't go as far or as fast; but like I said before, I suggest them because they are easier to learn with--even if you hit yourself, it won't hurt.

Yesterday, I threw a regular size marshmallow 40 yards with one of my paracord shepherd slings.  It was just a regular-sized marshmallow.  After I through it, I went to inspect the marshmallow and it had lost its shape.  It was pretty flat!

Update: I find that my paracord and leather slings throw marshmallows best.

This is a 4-strand rockman paracord shepherd sling that I made yesterday.  

I like to call it a "Tennis Ball Thrower Shepherd Sling" so people realize what type of projectiles are good to use.

You have been busy.  You need to start posting this on the main forum, a lot of people don't go to the intro page after they become members.

I posted a few slings on the general discussion board.  Thanks for the advice, Bill Smiley

Here's a golf ball thrower sling that I really like.  Without much effort at all, I was able to throw a golf ball well over 100 yards.  The paracord through the leather grips the ball and releases great too!

Thanks so much!  It is effective.  One of my favorites.  Smiley

Here's another of my current favorites.

That's pretty.  My next sling after I finish my current project is going to utilize white and red wool in a spiral pattern like that.  Maybe I'll give some out as "candy canes" for Christmas.

One question, how do you eliminate the overlap on the pouches in that style of sling?  Are you leaving unbraided strands that you're covering up with the whipping?

Hi, David;
  I've already checked out your site and we've chatted a bit on the forums.  Your prices are fair and your slings appear very well made.  We have a few other merchants here, as you're probably aware.  Timothy Potter, LukeWebb, and Paleoarts come to mind immediately.  They all do excellent work also.
     Your brown netted pouch sling in Reply#22 is very interesting.  I wish I knew how to make it. 
Welcome aboard!
