Well I managed to dig out some kitchen scales which may or may not be accurate.

The one with the wider pouch is 25g
The narrower pouch (and slightly thinner) one is about 22g

This is post wax weight, not sure how much it adds but you can notice it. Both are slightly thicker in the middle and tapered as I feel it gives a nicer release and is a bit more stable/safe for holding ammo.

New sling. 6 strand round braid with different coloured jute. Honestly, this thing was a nightmare. The braid kept going wrong, being really uneven, the transitions were difficult and it ended up being very twisted. Luckily it ended up pretty straight after wetting it down and hanging it up with clamps on the release cord. I love the colours but I might go back to flat braids Cheesy

Very nice kick!!
I love this thread.
So many beautiful designs, pretty braid styles and so many individual touches.
It’s amazing how similar and how different slings can be.
Love this photo of my sling.

If that sling could talk I bet it would have a few stories to tell Mersa.   Grin

Jaegoor, I would love to know how you made the tab on the release cord.

Direkt von translate.google.com
Jaegoor, ich würde gerne wissen, wie Sie die Lasche am Freigabekabel hergestellt haben.

Das ist eine sehr einfache makrame Technik.
Du hast vier Fäden. Einer wird dein arbeitsfaden. Mit diesem knotest du die jeweils anderen. Du beginnst nach rechts.
Bei jedem Faden machst du jeweils zwei rechte Knoten pro Faden. Bist du au der linken Seite, knotest du zurück mit zwei links Knoten pro Faden. Ganz einfach. 😁
