It all depends on personal preference and style, I like a solid, cupped leather pouch with a quick throwing style. For a slower style with multiple rotations, a split pouch might be better. The pouch should usually be larger than the ammo, but that also depends on style and experience.

Simple and clean lines brat complicated over thought stuff most times.

I like a split leather pouch with thin flat cords around 30" long.
I also try and make my pouch and the transition as streamlined as possible.

Thanks for your imput. The one I made yesterday is much better than the short one I made the day before. I think it's a bit too long though. I wish there was some standard. Like length for style should/must be equal to length of such and such body parts or something like that.

Hi, I am an archaeologist who works in the Pacific Islands, such as the Marianas, including Guam. Does anyone know if sling stones (either biconical or sphercal) were used in the Philippines by indigenous groups? Have sling stones been documented from any prehistoric archaeological sites in the Philippines? I would appreciate any leads. Thanks.

If you can get a hold of Pikaru he might have info for you. I believe other members as well. Short answer is I believe they were used in the Pacific Islands but don't have much more info than that.

Has anyone tried to use tubular webbing like this stuff for climbing?
It is rated at 17.8 kilonewtons working strength (4001.59919 pounds-force) with far far less elongation than paracord.
It takes a great deal of power to stretch it, I figure with a 3 or 4 oz projectile, we would not exert enough force to cause any elongation.
What do you folks think.

Balearic legal sling has been mentioned a few times on this site. There is also a balearic legal competition.

My question is, what (exactly) is a balearic legal sling? Huh

Historically it has always been a sling with 100% natural fibers, however as I understand from recent competitions you can have synthetic in your slings. The rules have become more relaxed. I believe it also has to have the basic design of a sling with finger loop, retention cord, pouch of some sort, and release cord. Other than that you can have any version of pouch, ie split pouch or solid cupped shape.. it doesn't need to be a typical Balearic split pouch.

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

Any ideas on telescopic cords? Would make keeping a sling in ones pocket a bit tidier but I think I'm just reaching for straws
