This is just one bag from the shed, and I still didn't find the one I was looking for.

There's officially something wrong with me.

Great selection of colours there!
A sling to coordinate with every outfit.

V briefly stopped by a beach on are way back to the midlands, but managed to snap these two clips before my memory ran out (a moment of silence for the hits that couldn't be filmed  Sad)

New modern take on an old design.

27Ē
Made from spliced 1/4Ē vectrus
Double cinching fingerloop
Brumel splice deep bury
Plastic inserts inside the pouch

Quite possibly the worlds strongest sling with a break strain of  3.3 ton.

This design might become commercially available in the future given that my test group likes the design.

With practice I could probably make 3-4 a hour minus the whipping.

Well itís about 30$ Australian worth of materials for a sling this size.
Iíll probably give out the first round for free to some users. I owe morphy, nooc, Irongoober, kick, vet, crazybrave, j, slingbasket , and channing all a sling and I have another 4 or so people Iíd like to test it out. So I need to cough up a few hundred bucks just to get some feedback.
Given the design works and doesnít change I think Iíll retail them in the 50-100$ range depending on how much time and materials I need to do them.

They might be built to order . Itís only in the early stage of development but itís a somewhat marketable design given the simplicity of build.

Very nice Mersa. That double braid is applied really well.
How does it feel to your usual?

Well itís not like my usual slings , and I find it still on the heavier side of my comfort zone.
Iím still experimenting, but so far I think it functions similar to a traditional style sling.
Itís not ultra high performance like the slings Iím used to.  I think thereís somethings with the design that I like and things I donít. I will make prototype 2 in the next weeks . But concept will be very much same just fine tuning slice positions and tapers. Maybe try a different material, and some other ideas.
Iím not sure if I likethe double fingerloop so I might change that  for next one . Also might try some ďleather ď on the pouch and release.

Still my top slings are super efficient designs with thinner lighter designs. But a thicker heavier sling has a nice feeling I just donít see improvement in accuracy or distance, so  basically Iím still working on it

Here's my prototype of a captive release Y-noodle.  One piece of paracord, just twisted and knotted.  The captive release was an afterthought.  I meant to cut off the excess to just make a Y-noodle, but figured I'd conserve the paracord and try captive release for the first time.  It worked better than I thought it would.  Really well, in fact.  It releases about 30 degrees earlier than I'm used to, but I can adapt.  After I get the hang of making them with 220 paracord, I'll try with 3-strand jute twine.  I think I'll like the feel better, and the knots will hold tighter.

As soon as I figure out how I made it (I was just noodling at the time), and refine my method, I'll post a tutorial.
