Looks fantastic, can't wait Smiley

I've got Kick's sent off now, should be with him soon. Here's a sneak preview of what's been sent out - https://i.imgur.com/Z0WtoTN.jpg

Sorry again about the big delay getting stuff done and away, my back's much better now though and I can crack on with with getting the next pouch done. It turns out slinging can actually help loosen a sore back, been practicing a bunch with a figure of eight technique and long (thumb to opposite shoulder) cords, requires a fair bit of body twist for good power Smiley

Hey. Yeah that would be great. I'm a bit behind on making them at the moment though, I need to get Noone's done and sent out. But I'm definitely interested in trading for them, get a little collection going Smiley

PM me we'll figure it out.

Just turned up today! The pouch is amazing and I'm actually really liking the feel of the double finger loop. I'll have to get out and test it in the next few days. Thanks! Cheesy

Great!  Grin  Glad you like it, I was worried about the finger loops not fitting, hopefully they work out for you. The feel of the sling will change as you break it in, the dyneema will soften quite a lot.

Noone's package arrived the other day, awesome stuff! Thanks so much, really appreciate it. Smiley

I'm going to try and get out and give all these a good test sometime soon. It's great to try out other people's ideas.

Sorry I'm being so slow to get them out to you, it's not been the easiest time, I'm sure you'll enjoy and get some good use out of it though.

Hey there nice looking slings, where do u get you dyneema from ?? And also I see you from Scotland where about I am in Fife. Also have u tried https://www.animatedknots.com/brummel-eye-splice-knot for the loops instead of wiping them ?? I think it would look a lot nicer/ cleaner

Hey, I'm sorry I've been so absent, the whole December-January period was pretty hectic and I've struggled a bit to apportion time to things. My back giving me trouble hasn't helped either, I can't seem to find a position where I can weave away comfortably, need a new desk really or some other solution. In short bursts it's fine though.

I'll be getting yours out to you as soon as I can, so sorry it's taken this long. I think for the future I'll just try and make a few pouches up ahead of time, and only commit to availability when when I can get them sent out quickly.

Thanks. I get this stuff - https://www.amazon.co.uk/emma-kites-16Meter-Braided-Polyethylene/dp/B07BKSJFJ8/r.... Good quality and fairly reasonably priced.

I'll have to give that splice a go, not sure how well it will work but it looks like it could be fairly neat. I'll have to test the strength of it too, the whipping method I use at the moment is extremely solid.

I'm over on the West coast Smiley

I can say that it will be worth the wait. I'm really liking the one  I have and I think I might take it to Mallorca as well. Maybe not for the competition itself (I have more practice under my belt with other slings) but for slinging on the beach Cheesy
