Mega sling collection
Jan 12th, 2020 at 6:16pm
 
I was having a big Sunday sort out of all my tools and stuff and thought I'd sort through my big bag of slingsTM. Now these are most of the slings I've made over approx the past year, though I actually have at least this much again back home, despite multiple clear outs. It seems likely that I've made over 100 slings in total since I started up in Jan 2017. Or about 1 every 10 days for three years...!

There are in fact 34 slings, 25 of which are braided (actually one of them was from Ukranian alex and slipped into the picture!). Also my 4 whips (2 snake, 2 bull). It was quite strange, I found slings that I can't remember making but are nevertheless felt really good. It turns out I am quite well equipped for Majorca 2020! In the end I threw out about 5-6 slings which were not really up to standard (mostly because of twisted release cords, or pouch instability caused by me trying to make them too thin). I'm also planning to give away 7 of these which are all of a decent or above standard but not optimal for me. I will do another topic for the giveaways with the sizing's and a brief summary for each. Additionally if anyone fancies purchasing one that is not on the giveaways list I'm open to offers on most slings and can provide more detailed info and pics.

Awesome sling collection! I like the leather work. Iím currently trying different methods for sewing leather onto the finger loops. Your bullwhips are cool too. Thanks for showing them.

   Nice collection. I also have a huge collection. I mentioned this before.... as my wife was dying from cancer I used sling making to distract me. I won't say it kept me sane because I've never been sane. It was a tough time and I made MANY slings.  I have no idea how many.  I'll have to photograph them and post them here.

I will happily buy a sling. I still use the Apache sling you sent me in an exchange (Was it a SITH? I don't remember now) and it's quite possibly my favourite sling to use. I would love to have another one Cheesy

Count me interested too!  Are you liquidating the whips also?

@Saacson/Ratman Thanks! It's funny the things we spend time doing. For me it's part art, part scientific endeavour and part something to do whilst watching TV!

@Kick Good to hear it's still getting use! There's a few apaches going in the giveaway I can reserve one for you. I'm gonna put the topic up in a bit.

@NooC The two on the left are my go-tos, but I would part with the bullwhip with the white tape end (never got round to adding that turks head knot on it). The red and black snake whip has a loud crack but the taper is disrupted by overly tight braiding over the cord hiding and it doesn't 'flow' as well as it should so I'll let that go at a discounted price.

just take them with you to mallorca and sell them.
Serves 2 purposes.
1) you end up with not only a free holiday but spending money as well Smiley
2) clears out space and slings that aren't being used and leaves you lots of space to make some more Smiley
