Hmmm... yeah the sliding weight makes a lot of sense.  Iím going to have to think about this more and see if I can come up with any ideas. I definitely think the ring sling could be adapted to a slider.

Is the staff sling a compound sling?

no because it's one handed and resembles a throwing motion.compound sling in function resembles the whip more
staff sling is usually 2 handed and motion resembles an axe/hammer strike.

staff sling better be light and have little mass on the tip Compound sling needs all the mass on the "tip". You wouldn't use a hammer as a staff sling or would you....

I think it works similar to how a compound sling unwinds but itís only half a rotation, you canít twirl it past the staff so itís kind of a half compound in my eyes.

Still need to make a staff sling out of a fishing rod.
