might be too short for some of you (slinging in forrests changed the lenght of my slings, they are made for slinging in tight spaces)

Damn, Mike!  What a piece of art!  Is there any instructions online on how to make that design?


Thanks for the kind words.
here is a video that shows a similar method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LhOQdpjmsI
I did some changes and improvements to the method in the video, It is very similar to the "smiling sling"

@MMF


To finish off your pouch in loops, you could try the method I use for making tabs where you loop the ends and then just 3 strand braid the loop. See the 10th panel in the image I posted.

Thanks for the advice! I was planning to use an eight strand Mathew walker knot with the cord running through it with a stopper knot at the end. I've done that before on a previous sling. But I'm going to try your solution. I will probably not do it exactly as you do because the loops will be taking a lot of loading. They might back out the braid especially if using dyneema as I did with that sling. Make loops - that's smart. Thanks IronG.

Mike, that 8-strand braid is pretty.
I keep seeing double retention loops and though I'd give it a go. I lost my first try, but this one came out really well. I think it's my new default sling. the thin cords make it more pocket-friendly, too.

Here is attempt number one at using loops on the release cord side of the pouch. I made the loops too big. The setup on the retention cord side is close to what I tried to describe in my last post. I think the colors are most excellent on this Thanksgiving day.

That looks great! I like the split pouch with that weave. Never seen it before.

I finally got around to the waxing of the sling. The verdict is in, skip this experiment. The end result is a very hard unforgiving sling. Anything that requires more power than a gentle lob results in very painful welts on the body of the slinger (me) at the follow through.

Over-waxing can do that, as well as not having a suitable cracker to dissipate the release cord energy.
Applied in the right context, it makes a very good target sling that lasts forever.
