Finally got around to trying one of these out. I somewhat improvised some parts and it took a while to get my head around it but I think I got a usable sling out of it Cheesy

I really like that. I've toyed with ideas for a single strand sling but never found a way that I really liked. I'm gonna have to try it.

Well done.

Mersa's is defintely the best way to make a "serious" one strand sling. Easiest and quickest way is to make a single strand sling though is one of these which is practical enough but doesn't win any awards for durability or looks.

Tried making a mersa sling, but short corded myself. Cut a longer piece of pcord and thought gutting it would be a good idea. Not really  Undecided
It would look better if I hadn't, but it slings nice  Smiley

Can you ballpark how long of a cord you need?

Say you want 2' of cord on each end.  How long of a cord do I need to start with?

Usually between 2-3m. But a lot depends on the type of cord and how tight you braid . Make the first one your learning curve and remake it to suit.

To make the one above took a lot of trial and effort to get it perfect.

It can be a little bit hard to do with certain cords. I usually start with the first release or retention length set and then I use excess cord and cut at the end.
So the start bowline is in place and the upwards cord is your actual finished length. This way the weave can take a lot longer to pull through but you should always have enough cord to finish if you didn't cut yourself short to begin with.
If you wanted to do it with a set length precut piece of cord you would need to try a few times to know where the start of the pouch would begin , you kinda understand what I'm trying to say ?

For a 29" sling pouch ctr to release knot (If you use paracord), cut it 16 feet long. Tie the bowline knot 2 feet below finger loop knot. If you  make the bowline loop 11" long; the two pouch straps will be 5" each.  Smiley

I made my first one of these. I like it a lot. My preference for this one goes over the PJ sling. Now I know which sling to make if I only have cord available.
