I have started using small beads. You can buy about x50 for a few shillings.
They give you the exact same feel each throw and release and are easy to replace.
Make sure the beads are not to big,  long oval shape are best. 16x8mm with 3mm dia hole.
I would really reccomend beads with para cord slings.

Another in favor of a tab of some kind.

something more aerodynamic than a tab may be just a cm of 2 of whipping layed over some stitching
This creates a very hard and grippy surface

I am not a fan of knots, and so I only use smooth cords. My 18" sisal Balearic sling has a release that is 5mm wide and 3mm thick. I find this is more than thick enough to throw 500g stones at full power. I actually prefer a slightly thinner cord for  ~250g stones (my comfortable, preferred weight).
Naturally, the deciding factor is the material. I don't have as much grip with hemp or wool, and therefore the release has to be thicker.
