Huntsman Sling Designs

Open to trades. Otherwise $30 bucks + shipping

    Worth every penny. Very tight weaves, good for tens of thousands of throws. UV, mildew, and rot resistant. The inside of both the release cord and the finger loop cord are slightly hardened with a lighter to ensure years of use without serious wear.

    I typically make 3-4 slings a week for coworkers, forum members, or for the steady flow of rock hound hippies abundant here in Portland, Oregon. There is a waiting list as I can only work on slings after work and on the weekend because my fingers can only take so much!   Wink

    Also I just ordered 30 new rolls of different colors and patterns, however some colors may not be available at the time of order. We can negotiate via PM.

If you order I need to know:

1. What 2 or 3 colors you want together in the weave.
2. Where you put the finger loop ie which finger and how far do you slide it on your finger.
3. Your address to ship to.
- And you need to get my address so you can send the money order to me. Once received I will ship same day or next.

Colors to choose from

Please note, the twine fully covered leather sling directly below i have decided I am no longer making currently for customers.

From here down are all for sale.

This triple rockman pouch is $40 because it uses 45 ft more cord and takes an hour longer to make.

Interesting way of lining the pouch with leather... Is it woven underneath or braided or what?

it looks like he put the leather over it, punched holes,and sew(sewed?) it.

Thanks a bunch guys!

What I do is cut two pieces of leather, long enough to cover the length of the pouch and wide enough to wrap around each side of the braided pouch. I do one side at a time. I wrap one side as tight as I can and mark off with a fine tip sharpie marker the points where I want to sew. Then I take the wrap off and use a center punch to pound little holes for threading on a piece of wood, punching where I marked with the marker. Doing this makes it wayyy easier to get through the tough leather with a needle (I can't tell you how many kneedles I've broken) and improves the design. Most importantly though, I pinch a rock inside the pouch as I weave so that the leather comforms to the shape of the rocks that will be thrown because the threads are positioned in such a way. That way it holds that curve naturally.

Cheers

Nice slings, but you may want to take the e-mail adress out, or crypt it Wink

Did you try a plain 9 strands braid for your cords ? And a 3 woven strands pouch ?

I think he said 12 strand, looks like a 3 strand type braid.
Also do remove the email address, I made the mistake with my skype name!

Thanks for the inquiries!

         I do all sorts of strands to experiment but my favorite is a simple 3 strand folded to make a 6 strand weave. This is of course with the 1/16th inch sporting chord. Again, I'm currently experimenting with a 5 strand folded to make a 9 strand weave which makes it more complicated because you have to toss away a single strand twice in the process and weave one back in after the pouch is finished. But as much effort I put into making the slings perfect, I work twice as hard learning how to throw.
         I study thoroughly the techniques used by the professionals ie Luis pons livermoore who I would love to meet one day. I've gotten quite good over the years, throwing thousands of stones every week. I've got his form down, which is not quite overhead but more behind as he spins then spins his last slightly higher as he steps into it like a baseball pitch in a relatively side throw. That last twirl of the sling is veryyyy important to gain enough leverage and momentum to snap the sling in a solid fluid motion. No jerking of the sling. Remember, you aren't doing it right if you don't hear the crack of your sling as you throw your rock..
