Got my sling from Willem a week or so ago and finally got round to getting a picture up.

It's a lovely rockman sling, thin cords made from nylon with cotton whipping on the pouch. I can't really get out slinging too much these days so throwing test might have to wait, it seems to hold ammo very well though and if it releases as cleanly as most rockman slings should be very nice. Has a decent crack too, even empty.

Also got a clay glande and ball (lost the ball somewhere in my sling supplies though), I've shown a few other items for size comparison.

I'm so glad that it arrived safely! It looks better in a photo than reality. Grin I do find that it has a very fast and clean release. I look forward to your test on it @JudoP ! Cheesy Oh and I see that you still have to finish the retention loop.

The slings from JudoP just arrived! I will probably upload photos tommorow or soon. I will test them tommorow when I go throwing. Cheesy Cool

The sling from Funditor has arrived! It's a beautiful wool Tibetan-style sling. I haven't had a chance to try it out, but I took a few practice swings with a tennis ball and it has a very nice feel.

Funditor included a clay and a lead bullet that are modeled on historical examples. These are staying in my collection. I don't want to lose them. Thanks Christian!

I think I'll withdraw from the exchange . DirtyDuck seems no longer interested in slinging and my slings are getting anxious. Roll Eyes

Sarosh - where are you located? My sling exchange partner dropped out as well.  Maybe we can exchange?
