Hi everyone...
May 16th, 2018 at 3:50am
 
... and thanks a lot for what has been done here, and what will be.
I've been reeding you for several times now, as I started slinging about one year ago.

Internet is not of an easy access for me, so it's obvious I won't be a great contributor. Anyway, I joined for you to know that this forum is of a great use for many people.

As for me, well... I'm french (sorry...), and my favorite toys are a 2ft, leather pouch sling, and my Yukrek style kestro.

What else to say...
Sling on, boys and girls!

"A kestros or kestrophedrone, also known as a cestrus or cestrosphendone, is a specially designed sling that is used to throw a heavy kind of dart."

I've made one but haven't made any darts to test it out yet Cheesy
