Actually I would be in favour of a chain, as you get in contact with two fellow sling enthusiasts  Smiley

Received mine yesterday. Pouch is 7"x21/2".  Thin cords (1/8"). I think this is an Apache? Anyway, it is well made. Happiness Smiley

"Apache" always seemed to me to be a bit nebulous a name but I would probably call it that. More importantly I would call it beautiful! That is a really nice sling!

I'm really happy to see someone else embrace the diamond pouch apache (or whatever you call it) sling. It's now one of my go to designs.

I somewhat feel like the shape pulls the pouch taut right at the edges giving in theory a cleaner release.

Here's the sling I received.  This is actually my first balearic sling.  I've only had it out once for a few throws, but so far I'm liking it a lot!

I didn't get any cracking during my first throwing session.  That being said, my target was only 16-18 m away.  So the throws were pretty slow.

I just ran outside with it and went through a few quicker motions with no projectile.  Yes, it does crack.  A deeper and more muffled sounding crack, but it's definitely there.  Can't wait until I have an opportunity to throw something I don't have to track down.
