I think the curve for slinging should end after the swirl going up at a very steep angle.

There are guys like Livermor who really have slinging down to a science and are, by any definition, accurate with slings.

There is that potential there, it just takes determination and commitment that very few people have.

Still pretty funny though. Its one of those jokes that only slingers understand.  Smiley
