Post by stoneslinging on May 3rd, 2023 at 4:44am
not sure if there has been a topic for this, so i thought i would start one.

what are some interesting slings/designs you have either seen or heard of?

feel free to share images!

Well I think instantly to the designs like
“Ysling” “kestros” “captured release” “compoundsling” “multi pouch” “triggering sling” “shotgun sling”


Personally I’ve played around with a few of these but only a few seemed to have any real appeal.

Here’s a picture of the triggering mechanism I came up with . I was very happy when I came up with the idea for the first time. Simple and very easy to use and reload , but it made ammunition variability almost impossible so it held no true promise for my applications.

I won’t tell exactly how it works see if anyone figures it out.

I had nearly the same reaction as stoneslinging ;D I had no idea how in the world it would work!
After a while looking at it, I showed it to my brother, who came up with a probable way to make it work :o

The only other really unique sling I can think of is the cestrosphendone / kestrophendone dart sling (http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1074713443, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5PWq3XqGGw, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mMUOZZBDuY).

Another sling that is at least sort of unique is the staff sling.

Oh yeah!  Definitely a topic that's come up before.  :)

These are both pretty long, but here's a couple threads for you to look through.

Here's my Double Barrel Sling.  As long as you use consistently sized ammo you'll get a pretty tight shot group.  Or you can use both pouches to sling larger objects like snowballs.
