Sling giveaway!
Jan 13th, 2020 at 1:59pm
 
As mentioned in the other thread http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1578870986/6#6, I'm looking to giveaway 7 slings and thin down my collection a little.

I think best way is probably first come first served. I've listed them below with pics.

As a sidenote if you are looking to buy a sling I'm also open to offers on others in my collection as seen in the other thread, though some are my core use slings and others have sentimental value so can't guarantee they'll be for sale!

2) Jute Rockman with paracord woven pouch
23" pouch ctr to finger loop
4" pouch
Release cord
Shorter for target practice, has some nylon cord braided into the last bit of release cord. The paracord pouch is good for all weather ammo  Tongue

Not the neatest sling but pretty functional and comfortable to use.

3) Woven Split Pouch:

31" from pouch ctr to fingerloop
6" pouch
Release knot and cord

One of my earlier attempts at a woven split in this style. It worked out pretty well though on reflection the pouch could be a little bit longer for large ammo. Longest sling of the bunch so good for more range type slinging.

4) Nylon Apache:
Length 24"
Pouch 4.5"
Small release knot
Really nice flowy feeling sling, it's a bit thinner and faster than most of the natural counterparts. Woven super comfortable fingerloop. There is a bit of twist right at the thin end of the release cord (it doesn't impact slinging).

5) Sisal Apache 1:
26" length
4.5" pouch
moderate release knot + cord
Nice all rounder apache very comfortable and fun to use. Has extended (balearic style) leather covering to prevent release cord wearing. All the sisal slings have leather sewn fingerloop coverings.

6) Sisal Apache 2:

26" length
4.5" pouch
beefy release knot

Similar dimensions to previous but this is built thicker with really solid construction and beefy release knot. Ideal for heavy rock throwing.

7) Sisal Apache 3:
27" length
5" pouch
Small release knot
Compared to previous two slings this has a much denser braid and a slightly bigger pouch. Alas, the fingerloop is too small for me! It is featured in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orxnryw0gYw


**************
Right that's all folks! Enjoy browsing!

This is super cool of you JudoP!  I'll take the Sisal Apache 1 if it's still up for grabs.

This is very kind of you judop.
As much as these slings are beautiful and I would love to add them to my collection I feel that there is likely some other forum members who would benifit from these works of art more than I.
So I just want to thank you for being a generous soul and contributing to our slinging community .
If no other members come foward to collect these several slings I'll be glad to take whatever remains however I feel they will all be snatched up swiftly.

I did hesitate slightly thinking maybe someone else should be getting the chance at a JudoP sling but I really do love the one I got originally. I know for a fact, I'll be using this one until it's dust.
