It's a win-win, Panda Man.  I've picked up quite a few techniques by swapping slings in the mail.  I can't wait for the next SITH.  I just "invented" a monster sling that'll catch everyone's eye.  There will probably be another one around Christmas.
    Thanks for the kind words, Aurelio.

I'm really digging that sling you made Donnerschlag.  Kind of reminds me of a hubert sling which is probably one of the best compliments I can give ya.  Nice work bro.

Thank you Cheesy
I got one from Hubert during this SITH (it was a hemp Tut/Lahun sling with what I believe to be an 8-strand box/square braid) and I'm absolutely loving it! I'd post a picture, but my phone's camera is on the fritz again. I'll see what I can do though

it's a 10 strand round braid.
the reliascord is reduced to 8 strand.
when a round yarn, is woven around.
the result is a mesh of square cross-section.
at a flat yarn, leather strap or not dimensionally stable as wool yarn.
is the result of a round cross-section.
if the netting has a core,
has the result, even with a round yarn, rather a round cross-section.

I hope you understand what I mean

Here is the sling I got from Aurelio.  It is made of sisal and has leather stitched to the pouch.  The leather is also wrapped around the release cord knot.  The wrapping and stitching is hemp.  It is obvious that very skilled hands constructed it, and some time was spent in the making of it!  I am very impressed how symmetrical it is.  The leather fits perfectly on the split pouch, and the tapering on the braiding is amazing!  In the close up pics you can see how consistent the braiding is.  I am very happy with it, thanks again Aurelio!

I have never slung with a sling of this design. So it was a learning experience testing it out for the first time.
Here is a video of my first slinging session with the sling!

That's probably the best sisal sling I've ever seen.

Cool video too.

OK, so today, I went to test my new sling (for real).

I already knew it works well with ripe apples, now, I know that's the best POWing sling I have ^^

I didn't break any length record but my golf balls still went for some nice distance Smiley

I am a little bit late to post pictures of the sling which I received from Dork. Unfortunately I was not yet able to use it extensively, as I didn't want to completely cover it with mud as the fields are at the moment more swamps than anything else.

So here we go: The sling has a nice tight and even woven split pouch, peruvian style. The additional strings needed for the weave are taken away and cut off continuosly at the back side without any additional seewing nor glueing (see 3rd picture from above). In contrary the strings removed or added during the taperings (see 2nd picture from above) are fixated with some sort of glue. The release and retention cords are thin 3 strand braid, which gain in width by added strings towards the ends. The flat and broader 3 strand braid at the end of the retention cord allows for a firm grip and has a replaceable tail, something I have never made myself (see first picture).

The slings folded length is 75 cm. The pouch has width 3.5 cm, allowing for good control of stones up to around 150 gramms or more. The material used are dyed strings presumably from plant fibers, but I have no idea which plant it is.

Overall it is a really nice looking and well made sling, of which I expect to be very durable.

Dork, thank you very much!

    Better late than never.  Here's a snazzy leather pouch sling I got from Jlasud.  The retention cord is hemp and the release cord is braided bale twine.

   The printing says Rat Man in Sekler-Hungarian runes.  Pretty cool.  The sling performs excellently, as you might guess from looking at it.   Nice work, Jlasud.  Thanks!

Are we going to be posting pics from the Christmas SITH here as well?
