I'm guessing with use it will get a bit more "worn in too". Looks cool!

@Jaegoor
Very nice!
It's interesting to hear you say that a tapered retention cord makes the release better on that setup. I've seen several slings from the south pacific that have that feature, and I thought it was just a result of the construction method.

I think what a gradual taper towards the pouch does is add side-stability to the pouch, to prevent it the pouch from flipping sideways and accidentally dropping the ammo like that.

just working on a woven plastic sling (want it to last long)


Weaving over sticks  Cool. My favourite method nowadays. Fast, easy, accessible.
