Sisal balearic  30 ish inches  came out kind lumpy and is incredibly hairy. Does waxing sisal have any benefit

Just using the sling a lot will knock off the excess strands. Or you can use scissors or a lighter to take care of the hairiness.

Die Schleuder sieht gut aus. Gute Arbeit
Sisal wachsen bringt nicht viel Verbesserung.

I usually singe sisal and jute fuzz with a small flame.  Feels like five o'clock shadow afterwards, though.

This is my latest Sling and I think my best yet.
It is 16 strand braid with jute and cotton, it is 150cm end to end, pouch is saddle stitched leather 11x6cm. And I made a matching quick release belt loop to 'accesorise!'

For a reference point, the stone in the photo is 185g.

Completed this one last night, probably the happiest I have been with my braids. I got the leather from Joe Meadmaker and cord is jute. First time I've formed the loop and whipped it to secure it so both sides could be started looped through the pouch.
