Hello!
May 24th, 2018 at 11:32am
 
Thanks for the add -- I'm in Cache Valley, Utah.† Just started slinging tennis balls with a paracord sling and a pouch cut from an old t-shirt.† Going to try to make a netted sling soon.† I have also made a short sling stick with a leather pouch that throws golf balls.† I build trebuchets as a bit of a hobby so I got into slinging from there since trebuchets are sort of an evolution of the sling.† Attached is a picture of my latest trebuchet, named Garbo (because he was built with scrap wood and bits of dead trees).† Garbo is about 7 feet tall to the axle.

Thanks guys!  The stick sling I made for golf balls throws about 400 feet.  Garbo likes to throw 500ml water bottles 300 feet.
