Maybe balearic throw for heavier "balearic" slings?

I've found similar results too. C_A's paracord and leather sling seems designed for fig8. It just fits. Then there is the experience I had with the super long Tibetan sling. Couldn't get it to feel comfortable until I saw how Tibetans use them and it suddenly made complete sense. I do think certain slings fit certain styles.

Whoa ironing paracord? What an idea. Iím assuming itís gutted when you iron it? I might have to try this...


No itís not gutted. I tried it gutted and itís too light. You get a nice cushy flattish oval:)

I don't know for certain if it's a specifically Tibetan style but this person in the video is Tibetan and it works really well with the two Tibetan slings I have. It's basically helicopter but with the starting position behind the back, using the shoulders for leverage to set the sling rotating. It takes a lot of effort to get a long sling moving and I've almost strained myself trying to go from holding the sling vertically to getting it spinning. This technique makes it effortless and is my go-to for long slings.

Ahh. Hope that gets worked out. They are beautifully done and no one else seems to make those types of slings.

Here is another video showing Tibetans slinging. They aren't using the beyond the shoulder method however their slings are much shorter than in the other video and much much shorter than my giant one. Not that size is everything...
