Title: Favorite Sling makers
Post by Morphy on Jan 20th, 2021 at 2:04pm
I've asked this question before I think but it's been years. I thought it would be interesting to see peoples tastes on sling making and how it's changed if at all.

My 5 are-
1. Jaegoor obviously
2. Walter for reasons I've said many times in the past
3.Hubert for similar reasons
4. Teg for being ridiculously knowledgeable on sling making and his slings are amazing as well

And my newest addition at number 5- JudoP. For very clean looking designs. His slings have come a long way and they are beautiful. Especially the Balearics and hybrid apaches. 

Well done at your awesomeness gents. You all deserve props.

“I’m only #4?! How dare you?!"

Lol...So is this like asking your parents who their favorite child is?  I could've sworn we did this thread before  and got a lot of responses.

My slings are WORLD renowned for existing and "having been made". I've heard them described as "pretty good" and "not too bad", why aren't I on the list!

Sigh. I would be a horrible politician.

   Jaegoor and Walter are also my top two.  After that it gets hard to pick.  There are so many artists here.

Morphy, I'd like to expand your list with some (mostly older members) whose work I always enjoyed for different reasons. And here we go in no particular order:
Timothy Potter, _kava_, Pikaru, lakeslinger.

Kava and Timothy Potter were my early inspirations on sling making.  Pikaru made some very interesting cultural slings that I loved. Miss that guy. He was cool.

What about Hubert? Teg was already mentioned, but those two always impressed me.

Hubert has consistently been one of if not my favorite sling maker of all time here. Very clean looking slings that work great. No idea how I forgot him.

If we’re talking about trash slings... Joe Meadmaker definitely takes the cake!

Ah, my trash slings are something I'm not humble about.  I'm sure no one's forgotten this beaut from the 2019 challenge!  ;D

Timothy potter, Hubert, Jaegoor, Teg.....
Maybe Thomas with the captive release slings.
Always enjoyed Yurek's medical tape sling as far as simplicity goes.

My favorite pouch design to use is fashioned after Pikaru's designs.

LOL I like mine too  ;D but my favorite sling braiders are all European:
Jaegoor, Hubert , Teg and JudoP.

Oh wait... I didn't forget Hubert. Geez I need to get more sleep I'm slipping here lol.

Hey hold on... I'm getting actual answers now lol! Thank you people. This thread isn't meant to leave people out it's meant to highlight old sling makers and the new ones coming up like mr JudoP. I like almost all the slings I see for different reasons.

Actually Kilisi I really like that strap sling you posted. The simplicity really appeals to me knowing it's a lethal weapon is hilarious and awesome at the same time.

Joe that is freaking awesome my man. Lol
