Very nice sling, primate!

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!”

Thanks guys, its my fastest sling so far. However the pouch might be a bit stiff. I'd like to try the same thing but with a more flexible pouch. Now, I'm trying to figure out how to get 4 lines to come out of my splice for the pouch, so that i can use the classic paracord type of braiding or the Mersa slings when he braids the pouch... Huh

My three slings from paracord and seat belt.

I have got some question. I do not have to much experience with different sling. Is better if sling is heavier? And is better make sling flat or rounded?

Sorry for my English.

@
Kurtz

if you want speed:
1) increase length
2) decrease thickness (cord and pouch drag)
3) decrease mass


if you want pouch control:
1) decrease length
2) increase thickness
3)increase braid tightness
4)use a stiffer material

if the round cords are too stiff when the sling opens and throws your shot off try flat cords of the same thickness or make thinner cords

I haven't seen any benefit from heavier slings, most of the benefits are from the increased thickness not the mass that comes with it. heavier slings will be better with heavy ammo, the reverse is not necessarily true. Instead heavy ammo needs slings of higher pouch control


you can learn how to sling with most slings if not all.
learn to adapt to the timing of each sling don't expect to have the same release timing with a thick short versus a thin long sling
