I know this struggle man. I am no photography expert but I think you need better lighting.

Polypropylene twine, it does crack very nicely but it is not very durable when slinging rough rocks so i have to periodically unbraid it and braid a new piece in, that is why the end of the sisal part of the sling is full of loose fibres.

Nice slings all round! Winter is coming so I should get back into sling making. I still have yet to master the Egyptian sling so I'll be having another go at one for sure.

Waxed hemp balearic, 60g @22".

I love the feel of this one, I can see why Jaegoor uses waxed hemp balearics for his target shooting.

It came out fairly heavy with the wax adding ~15g (my leather coverings usually add around 10g), but it's pretty manageable on a short sling. It feels bomb proof also and must be pretty waterproof after all that wax.


Hi Judo, quick question. How are you applying the beeswax? Are you putting it on the strings before or after braiding? Are you applying it Ďdryí as a rub or melting and dipping?

Thanks Iím advanceÖ

Melted a few blocks and ran it through. I then ran it over an electric hob to melt it in. You could also perhaps chop thin slices and then melt them in, probably less mess and controls the amount of wax better.

This is a really ugly sling but it works good for large rocks
