So how long of a piece of cord do I cut for a 40 inch sling?  I'd like to use that 5 6 inch way

Cord length times 2 plus pouch length times number of strands plus 6 inches to 1 foot for knots.

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

'zactly.  I like to play it safe and cut extra.  For a 40" sling I'd cut a ten foot piece of line at least.

I'd like to add one step that I now do to all of my slings made in this manner.  After you cut the loops as in pages 8 and 22 unravel each individual strand.  In this case you'd unravel each strand into the three strands it was created from.  It may seem like a lot of unraveling but it will make it much easier for you to cover the cut loops with the West Country Whipping. The next time I make such a sling I'll insert a picture of what I'm talking about.

   Thank you much, Sir.  Glad you like it.  I still want to make my tutorial on the Skeletonized Sling.  I'll eventually do one on my Side by Side Double Barrel and Giant Snowball Slings too.

Obviously the first three pages of this tutorial have been accidentally  altered somehow. Thanks to torc's copy I have the means to repair them.
