A new old sling video
Jun 24th, 2020 at 4:51pm
 
I finally got around to editing some footage from a few weeks ago. I didn't do too badly really. Also threw in some underarm as that came up as a topic around the time I filmed. Enjoy! A staff sling video is also on the way.

Nice slinging Kick!  I do admire your versatility.  I pretty much have the one way I sling and that's it.  I might make some small adjustments depending on the sling and target distance, but not much.

Looking good man! I agree that pan is an excellent target.

For some reason when I read this, I switched the order of the first 3 words of this " Good ...Looking... Man."

And I thought for a second "that is a strange thing to comment on. Certainly, there is a classic handsomeness about him, but what about the slinging?"...And then I re-read it.

Great slinging Kick! and your lady-killer looks probably makes your wife have to beat them off with a broom!

Thanks! I like the fact that I can now do pretty much every style somewhat correctly and at least make the stone go forward but I really should be sticking to one style if I want to do better at the International Cheesy

Thanks! Yeah I had to do a double take when I saw it being sold on Facebook for a pittance. The handles even make it easy to carry down to the range Cheesy I think pretty soon I'm going to have to hammer it flat again but I also like the idea of completely crumpling it.

Why thank you very much! I'll just be bookmarking this for a day I need it... Cheesy

Oh man! If you liked the sound of the pan in this video wait till you hear it in the staff sling footage I got a while ago that I've been editing this morning. I think it was the day after I filmed this video and I got some HEAVY hits on the pan. One in particular is just... oof. I would hate to be hit with a sling, I wouldn't have the opportunity to hate being hit with a staff sling. At least the one that I've been using could knock you into next week.

It is Cheesy Because it's so much shorter than most of my other slings, it always takes a little while to get used to it again but I really like it. Feels great to use.
