Did you use some other ice mold for the balls? I don't know if I've seen the small version.

Indeed!† https://www.amazon.com/Frexmall-Spheres-Food-Grade-Stackable-Cocktail/dp/B072N2X...
I actually bought these for use with another sling.† That video will be coming up in a week or two.

I think it was Timpa that had the design where it opens out from the bottom. That would also concentrate the shot I would think though the timing of the release would be different from a regular sling. Did you use some other ice mold for the balls? I don't know if I've seen the small version.

EDIT: Oh woops Timpa already posted Cheesy But yeah I think opening from the bottom might work better.


Yes. If the sling opens from the top (folds) it spreads the stones even wider.

There was another post recently that mentioned shotgun slings.† It was a good reminder for me to finally get my second one done.† This sling much more closely follows timpa's design.† And needless to say, worked much better than the first one I did.† If you watch this and then go back and take a quick look at the first video, it's quite amazing the difference.

I almost hate to say this.  I have a couple of ideas on that, but I don't know if it will work.

Did you do any throwing with the pouch loaded like that?  That's the method I was using before trying a pouch that opens at the bottom.  Definitely a wider spread with regular pouch.

Sarosh, very interesting. Nice analysis of the flight and release characteristics.

I think you should use this for a computer animation. The video of the projectile coming toward the camera made me think of creepy hand reaching toward the target. You could animate  a slinger-mage slinging spells toward the doom of their opponent. Lol. Sorry, maybe that was too much nerdiness for this thread.
