Corsican sling

From the same book of Mr Moriati.
Sling is frombula (or sfrombula).
The sling is made with leather.
A strap is attached to the wrist, sometimes with a necklace.

not sure about attaching the sling to your neck whistle

Always good to see solid pouch slings - they just make more sense Smiley

Your remark is relevant, Curious Aardvark. I must specify which neklace it is.
It is necklace for animals. Like today, the necklace for pets. I don't know if there is a word in English. It's important to look the picture to understand what the author means.

Your explanation makes it much more clear. I would say "collar" rather than "necklace" when referring to what goes on a pet.

I guess the only throw that is possible when gripping the sling as shown is a fast, underhand throw?

The author is born in 1944. He's corsican.
He loves Corsica, the language and all the traditions. Young, he interwieved old people in the villages.
The desappearance of the sling dates probably 19th century, early 20th century. The author didnot know the time of the sling. So, he dosn't know the technics of throwing.
Like IronGoober, I think underarm is good. But others techniques may be possible.
