Thanks JudoP and Ratman. I now use a fig. 8, where I use my legs as a "spring".

It ain't target practice if you keep hitting.

Hmm, well  a proper sidearm style is actually a lot better for distance than fig 8.

29 inches is fairly short.

In all slinging styles -  as with most martial arts - the real power comes from your waist.

Then biggest mistake people make is to just use their arms and try and 'throw' the missile.

Slings don't actually work like that.
The idea is to build up momentum using as much of your body as you can.

Video would really help - I've seen slingbadger and juan oliver ramon sling, I can pretty much guarentee you'll look better whistle

I'm gonna ask a simple question. What type of glande (in terms of shape) is the best?
