I just started getting back in to sling making when I joined the forum a couple months ago.† Since then I completed a braided sling that was only about 1/4 of the way done and had been sitting around for several years.† I also made two others, although one still needs a pouch stitched on to it.

I've lost track but I would guess only around 5 or so. I have so many I haven't "needed" any so I've been collecting other people's our more unusual styles. I still have one more to finish for the SITH but it's looking like it's going to count for next year...

   When my late wife was sick I made slings to keep my sanity.  I probably made hundreds.  There are still many slings around here.  I'll have to get back into making them this year.

I have made a few hundred, but I make the same few styles. I need to upgrade my skill, and start practicing my weaving and braiding to span it out.

quite a few. Goit a friend who loses hers on a regular basis - must have had a half a dozen just by herself Smiley

The 3d printed waterproof pouches seem to go best round here, as most people use them for throwing tennis balls for dogs to retrieve from a big lake Smiley

That's great!  I like the inclusion of the tennis ball.

I think I've made about 9 this year.

Awesome! I think I only made around 4 or 5. Most of them were super simple paracord ones for the most part.

A basic 'how to' sheet would also be good in the box.
Been thiking about seriously marketing slings. And a sheet that clearly shows how to hold and use  abasic underarm throw is something I reckon is an essential inclusion.

And a sock and a couple elastic bands, to make a sock ball Smiley

actually made† a lot more pouches than slings this year.

I need to get the cord side of things as standardised as the pouch manufacturing. Kind of pot luck at the moment.

Also need a more efficient way to make loops at the end of paracord. tying knots wastes a lot of cord. Must be some kind of crimping pliers and clips that would make a solid permament join for a loop. To be fair, once the cords are on the pouch, the area of join would have almost zero stress.
I do have some hair crimpers I bought to make a filament joiner from.
wonder if 180c would be enough to bond a metal clip to the paracord.
worth an experiment I reckon Smiley

Hmm maybe the clips used for sealing the ends of large sausages would do the trick.† †

Damn those things are expensive !
Wonder if a cable tie and the hot crimp would work.
Right, now to try and find the hair crimpers !
