This looks like a great idea and a good way of pushing yourself to get better. I am getting back into slinging after many years off. So I braided up a sling the other night and made some of those balloons filled with sand ( cool idea, I have only used stones and tennis balls).  My plan is to compete against myself and post the video here for constructive suggestions. I will video the first 10 shots and go from there. https://youtu.be/g6eCq1X1LhM
The sling needs some tuning and I need some warm-up and stretching. I also found that the shot was a little heavy for starting and I need more layer of balloons to hold the shape better. I plan to post again in two or three weeks.
Thanks for any ideas to improve!

Nice slinging George!  Your technique looks very similar to what I do.  Where are you slinging?  Looks like you're in an auditorium or something. Smiley

Was slinging today in the dark, and my target was bushes around 50 meters away. I was checking different throwing techniques and I have to say that it felt good hitting it most of the times.

Will be posting a video next time maybe this weekend.

Oh I didn't think you did.  I am waiting with bated breath.  Can't wait to see how you do with this.
