Finished another twining over sticks sling which has been on my floor for literally months. Had trouble sleeping last night so got to work on it. Each time I make one of these it comes out better than the previous attempt and this one is no different. I really like it. Still need to put it through it's paces though. Although they get better I still think I can do better than this one. My idea of having a braid on the release side to act as a flat runway for the ammo... I don't know. I don't like it all that much and the transition into a the twining is pretty messy. Next time I'm just going to twine it all. The loop is maybe a tiny bit small but I was too happy with how the splicing turned out to change it Cheesy I have tiny fingers anyway so it's all good.

I braided my cords and I've been thinking of unbraiding it and twisting it instead. Great job!

I like both braiding and twisting, but twisting is quicker.

This is a collection of some of my slings and other paracord projects.
I tried using cotton string but that failed as the cotton was obviously too stretchy. But it is here none the less.

Look forward to meeting at Slingfest 2022.

Damn that must be a heavy sling...shattered that board on impact.


HMG-yes that is now your new nickname from me- very nice work. How do you like the skinny split pouches? Ive never quite got the knack for them but some people are deadly using them. We had a member that was here for years, really a staple of this forum for a long time whose name was Dan. He loved those skinny splits. Skinny tarred bankline if I remember correctly. He was quite good with them.
