Hello from between Bristol and Gloucester UK!
Nov 19th, 2020 at 2:26pm
 
Hello Everyone, I have joined to learn more! I have made a few slings and it is spurring me on to get more skilled with cordage. I am only just learning to throw with a sling, its difficult to find a safe spot in the uk to regularly practice. I have seen a few guys with good skills on YouTube and I would love to progress.

I think maybe a heavy rubber ball with an excuse of exercising my large lurcher puppy will be the most acceptable way forwards!

Best to all! Smiley

Welcome from Finland! I've found making cordage to be incredibly fun and satisfying. What sort of sling are you using?

Hi SHEP and welcome! Hey if you haven't yet you might considered joining the SITH. Especially as a newer slinger it will offer you a view at other construction styles and sling types. Hope to hear more from you.

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES! Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler
