I just finished a tape sling tonight it isn't the prettiest thing in the world but it works ok. Mine is pretty stiff though I have to use heavy rocks to get it to fold and form a good puch around the rock. Will the sling become more flexible after use or did i make it wrong?  Undecided

Don't know about the tape sling, most of mine have leather pouches and a few of my older slings are braided.  But all of them, regardless of material, get more flexible with use.  So I figure the same will be true of your tape sling.

    Nice work Zorro!
I use duct tape almost exclusively and I've had no problem with the projectile rolling out. I have perfected a ''cupped ducked'' pocket that snugs at the corners when swung and realy eases up when released. It is a fairly simple design so I'll post some instructions and or pics sometime.

i made something similar to the tape sling yesterday, but i used duct tape and slightly thicker rope than prescribed.  it works well, but i prefer my old faithful.

It appears that the medical tape sling is fast becomming one of the most common and easiest to make of all the sling designs. I have had mine for afew months now and it is holding up quit well. I also lost one when it fell out of my pocket walking the dog Undecided

Any tape will do  Cheesy
I have used slings made with masking tape that worked for some weeks or months.

bigkahuna,

I definitly agree with you...

I believe the tape sling is the most simple and practicle sling to make in this day and age. I would imagine Leather would be nice, but I personnaly haven't been able to come by any that might be considered scrap and which I can us. However you can find medical or duct tape almost anywhere, and a roll of it can make you plenty of pouches. So when my sling gets worn out (Hasn't happened yet since I haven't been slinging for that long), I imagine I won't feel as bad as opposed to if it was made of leather.

I think the tape sling should recieve some kind of special status!

bringing this back to the front for our newer members :-)
Have to admit I was surprised it's not made it into the articles section yet - chris ?
It's a great design. cheap and easy to make use duct tape if you can't get the expensive medical tape.

Have fun :-)

I finally broke down and made a duct tape sling.  I've been planning on it for a long time, but I had other things I was working on.  Silly me Smiley  It took me all of five minutes, and works great.  I ended up giving it to my friend Paul, and the next day here he is on Slinging.org!  Guess he's hooked now Smiley

one of my carry-along-where-ever-i-go slings is this, but with a hexagonal pouch (the 2 slanty parts are 2.25 inches long, the center part is 2 inches wide)

though i find one row of stitches is enough
