Welcome! That's a well-made looking sling; I haven't yet been able to put together a paracord sling myself (I use a braided sling.)



Thanks Captain_Twine.

It was very easy to make the sling. I just used the model provided on this site to cut a piece of leather. I have made a new sling now which is a little bigger since I have swapped to tennis ball as ammunition. The new sling pouch model is also from this site ("Boat Sling").

I plan in the future to make a braided sling (similar to a balearic sling) but it looks so much more difficult to make...  Wink

I've found braided slings are easy to make, difficult to master Cheesy I feel I can now say I make an alright braided sling, but it's taken a long time.

Welcome from Finland! We should get C_A to check but I think you're the first member from Portugal Cheesy


As far as I know, mario is our first portugese member - and my memory for this kind of thing is usually right.

The 6 hole sling is a very good place to start.
Also good to see you've attached the cords correctly as well Thumbs Up
