Nice find.

That's a really tough choice, but I would go with this one: https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/E_Am1937-0213-86.  I like the red a lot.

The are a few very intriguing ones on there. Same place I found the Hawaiian sling made from Olona. I think they deserve their own threads.

@Teg. That was my fav as well!

@AlbionSlinger Also, did you see there was one with a sling similar to your multi-braid pouch?  I thought that was pretty cool.

I like the All leather sling the best in this list. It is just like mine.
Not the most efficiŽnt sling, or most accurate, but it looks and
feels cool,† and super durable.

I actually think such An All leather sling is good for
Practice, because it really forces you to learn
To use the wrist and pouch orientation
To get a somewhat clean release. Because if you
Dont oriŽntate properly with such a sling,. You Will
Feel and see it ;) it is not a forgiving design.

That's the first time I've ever seen the opposite of what we usually see, a sling called a slingshot.

Thank you Jaegoor for the photo of Cortaillod. The details are very clear.
What is the other sling ?

The Cordaillot Sling has more secrets than you might think.  But there will be a publication this year.  The other sling probably originally came from Guam and was given to the Spanish museeum.  I asked for the original but it hasn't been answered yet.  It is a braid technique and macrame.  I am recreating them.  But I'm still missing details

Hi, Jaegoor,
If you showed a photo of Cortaillod, is that there's something going on.
I think I found the weaving method because a fabric found in France during the neolithic looks like.
And I will read†your publication with a great pleasure.

This long sling looks like quite a performer.
Looks like a round braid for the cords and a flat braid for the long split pouch

I made a flat braid split pouch sling, out of 3 gutted paracord strands, folded in halve to make 6, with the split pouch long like above and flat and equally wide as the sling straps, like my previous designs, but now simply with a longer split, like above.
I gutted the paracord to reduce weight and stiffness of the end result. Leaving the innards in makes it too bulky.†

The versatility of it is amazing, the sling now has the ability to sling any rock 50-500g reliably. No need to swap slings.
