that looks fantastic Eino!  love the colors  Smiley how does it shoot; and how long is it?

Thanks! Smiley I haven't had the chance to throw with it, but it feels pretty good. It's somewhere around 32" long when folded.

Nice emergency sling storage! I haven't put mine in the car, but I always have a small sling in my pocket. Smiley

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!”

I finished my first peruvian sling! I ended up making it pretty plain, though, as I haven't figured out the diamond patterned braid yet. Instead, I did an 8-strand square braid. My next one will probably be done with a zigzag fistbraid like in Teg's tutorial. (https://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1687685411)

The material is cotton yarn, and I have to say that there is nothing like buying deadly weapons from the arts and crafts section. Cheesy

Looks amazing. I still have yet to make one with a complex pattern in the cords.

@Mersa - Your slings are absolutely sleek man.  How does that one compare to the dyneema corded ones you sent out?

@Blindsquirrel - Looks awesome man!  Definitely let us know how you think it compares to the double finger loop.

I haven’t actually put them over the chronograph together but the dyneema (2mm) is faster but with more twitchy handling and the Kevlar has a slightly better grip and handling and approximately a 2m/s loss in speed. Very similar but some subtle differences. Dyneema is much better in the wet . Kevlar is problematic with moisture changes. I’ll probably have both in Ibiza
