The Smithsonian channel is running a series called the world of weapons. They analyze weapons mostly from the past and explain their advantages and disadvantages. The sling will be on the series.

Interesting to see what they say and who they get on to say it. I'm going to go ahead and guess it will be an archaeologist that's used a sling for 30 mins 15 years ago Cheesy

yeah - no-one contacted me, so they probably haven't done much research.

Watching the sling segment now. Very well researched. The slinger their using is Luis Pons Livermore, champion slinger.
