Woweo! I have about 3 spools of cordage I make slings from now. 1 nylon-poly mix, one polypropylene/cotton, and one jute that is out and opened. I do not usually open a spool of jute unless I need to, as it has no protection against rot, etc and i think it decays over time- I often doubt it does( have you ever used a rotten sling? I have not) but I think its a good idea. plus, it seems easier to work.

Hi Kebin,

I've been absent selling slings on this forum because all my sling making time has been tied up with a local marijuana store chain, producing hemp slings for them to sell at all of their local stores over here in Washington State. I also don't use synthetic whatsoever as I prefer the bees wax coated 1-2 mm thick hemp for durability, flex, and weight. Lots of improvements on the quality of the release knot, finger loop and leather coverings.

I don't do this much but I've got some free time. It will cost you $100 but you will be more than satisfied guaranteed. I will try to get some pictures up of these new and improved slings.

HuntsmanSling. Are your slings really selling for $100.00? Who is your market base?

Also, and if you don't mind telling us, where do you get your hemp cord from? The reason I ask is that I have not found a hemp cord that is consistent enough in diameter for a really good finish in the weave. Too many lumps or it's coated (not with beeswax) and stiff or if the diameter is consistent I can only find it in very small spools. Thanks

Nice work by the way.

Hello Pikaru. http://hempbasics.com/shop/Item/2mm-hemp-cord

very consistent cord. Don't mess with twine. There is a big difference between hemp twine and cord.

Also, buy yourself a block of beeswax. After your sling is done you can drag your sling back and forth on the block to get your durability.

I sell them to head shops (places that sell glass marijuana pipes), but primarily military friends in my unit who HAVE to have one after they see what I can do.

Here is an example of a 5 weave I made with the same 2 mm cord linked above. However, the pouch is made of 1 mm hemp cord from the same website.

Nice heavy slings. Thumbs Up
You might want to start consider tapering the release cord closer to the pouch.
At least, i would prefer it more like that.
