Beautiful slings, Jaegoor!

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!”

Nice sling!
How did you make the whip-cracker? Do you have some directions/measurements?

haha nice! I made one a couple of weeks ago and didn't have the time to try it out Cheesy
I used bicycle brakes wire, I spliced the wire at the split pouch but I secured the ends with tape. I think its going to work fine. let us know how it shoots!

Just got back from a session with it, here are my first impressions:

Pros:
-High Abrasion Resistance (0 wear and tear noticable after about 50 shots.)
-the cable offers a whippy feel and good torsional stiffness.
-Power and precision felt decent.

Cons:
-Hard to load (pouch doesn't wrap well around projectile due to stiffness of cable)
-Uncomfortable finger tug after the shot
-feels like its going whip back in my face if i go too hard.
-No cracking sound
-if one strand fails, the sling is not good anymore.

At work we use a 1mm 7x7 stainless cord sometimes. That is very flexible.
The weave of a steel cable does a lot for the flexibility.

Haven't dared to make a sling out of it. As you said, It would be scary to have it whip in your face.

A Rockman that I just finished.  I've owed this to someone for an embarrassingly long time.  The whipping is cotton and the rest is jute mixed with some Husky fluff.

So cool and I love matching the glande colour to the sling
😁👍

Your slings are works of art, Jaegoor.
Primate;  I like the steel cable sling... thinking outside the box.
