@CA - Thanks for the input.  I'm shipping to lobohunter, so patience is no problem.  Although the sling I have to send to him came out pretty nice, so there is the temptation to use it. Wink

I believe I'm the first recipient of this year's SITH as I got very lucky with UK to UK delivery, thanks JudoP! this is my first balearic type sling and definitely the nicest sling I own. Had a few practice throws with it and it cracks like thunder, really nice craftsmanship. Especially with the stitched thumb ring. Really really impressed

Two slings have now arrived! Thanks Samuel for the slings and the letter. You say in the letter you made two to make up for the "poor style" but they look like damn fine slings to me Cheesy I was all set to go out slinging this morning but I've got a bit of a cold and it's been raining all day so I had to put it off. I'll get some pictures up soon hopefully (looks like I'll be likely be having the day off work if I'm feeling this crappy tomorrow) and try them out as soon as I can. Thanks again!

Thanks Aslan, I'm glad you like it! It's actually technically an apache sling but it does have a lot of balearic inspired elements

I got mine this morning too from vetryan. A whole 5 slings!

2 seatbelts
a flat moosehide pouch with jute cords
a boat(?) mooshide pouch with jute cords
a jute rockman

Not to mention this lovely moose hide which I will put to good use!

Didn't even realise joe got his sling , last year it took over 7weeks from postage to arrival this year Australia post got it there in just over 2 , this may go down as the fastest package I've ever seen through Australia post.

Wow, Australia post actually managed to quickly deliver something. Key word, quickly. I'm impressed.

Did you sacrifice a few virgin's this year, Mersa Tongue
