i think its important to have multiple slings when you want to be as accurate as possible

I agree with that statement, I found longer slings to feel more accurate at longer ranges. I usually use my 18" sling for accuracy up to 100m and above 100m I use my medium sling and at ranges over 150m I use long sling.

Of course I can't hit man sized target, but I manage to cover almost all my ranges I can get with stones and get hits on tree trunks or hay bales.

the slings shown are made by me.
the one at the top is cheap jute.
the second one is sisal.
the one at the bottom is some unknown natural material with polypropylene braided into the pouch.

CrazyBrave333 was kind enough to send me this beautiful sling.
Finally a sling with the feel of my own.
Itís made with Kevlar and thatís very similar feeling to dyneema.
I absolutely love it, itís definitely one of my favourite slings for sure.

I highly recommend this sling, if CrazyBrave333 is in the sith you want him to send to you trust me.
Iíd even say ask him if thereís any for sale.  For this style sling itís by far my favourite, and seriously look at it itís gorgeous.

Looks great, I've wondered before the best way to attach webbing ala aussie pouch. This seems very effective.

Kevlar is pretty interesting to work with, you can't melt-seal it like with paracord because it's very fire resistant.

Yeah kevlar is a tricky medium to work with... I use thick strong binding and then use PVA glue to seal it and make it more resistant to wear. Also the PVA glue is fire proof so the whole thing is flame resistant!!! Its not a 'lifetime' sling but its a long lasting one.

Also need special scissors to cut aramid fibers - but its well worth it. Keen to trade if anyone is interested.

Thanks so much for your kind words Mersa - too kind! I'm glad you liked and and really appreciate your feedback...
