I think I saw some of this at the hardware store the other day, and I was contemplating trying it out. What are your thoughts on the material?

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

It's a great weather-proof material and it's very light. I prefer natural materials though (for the main part of the sling) as they have more grip, and are traditional.

I got some synthetic sisal and made a sling with it. Natural materials definitely make nicer slings. I tested it with a tennis ball and it worked well. It'll be nice for a 'beater' sling! Smiley

Absolutely beautiful!

One of these days you need to make an ugly sling that looks like it will fall apart right away.  Surprise us all.  Grin

I now keep back ups in my car so I don't have to give away my good slings ShockedP

You never know if the person you are giving it to will actually get into it or not (in the chance encounters where I'm giving them away), so I just keep it to the basics.
