so simple, and looks really effective too.

but im wondering, from the projectiles perspective while its sitting in the pouch, would the ends of the pouch get in the way at all? i make paracord slings and if the inside of the pouch on the release cord side isnt smooth enough from rest until the stone leaves the sling, all sorts of misfires can happen. ive even had one stone that was jagged catch it and damage it.

It may depend to some extent on style, but I can't recall ever having a projectile hang up in one of my seatbelt slings. Usually when I leave the house I have at least one seatbelt sling with me.  I love the way they work plus if someone hits me up for a sling it's no big deal to give one away in that they're very fast and easy to make.

I think the way that the pouch is formed where it transitions into the release cord forms a little "ramp" of sorts, as opposed to some obstruction for the projectile to catch on.

I've had a rock hang up in a seatbelt pouch, so I tried it with the knots on the inside of the pouch and it works real well. In fact, it's one of my favorite designs. I tried leather instead of seatbelt material and like that even better.  Shocked

I have always thought that also. Never had anything get caught up in one either.

very nice!!!(2 thumbs up)  seems similar to a sling tutorial by timothy potter on his site http://www.seekyee.com/Slings/howtos/leather1.htm ; I made one like this with paracord,  but I had to sacrifice the cord and leather to make something else  Embarrassed

A seatbelt sling mailed to me by slingingrat is one of my favorite slings. I definitely suggest making one of these, or trading for one.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

One of my best seatbelt slings. I've posted the picture before but I wanted to show how potentially neat the constrictions can be.

Beautiful sling, Aussie.  Is that lawn mower pull start cord? Seatbelt slings take very little time and are very easy to make once you learn how.  Yet it's hard to find a sling more versatile and effective.  There's no better snowball sling.

not to be an ass, but i'm not the biggest fan of seat belt slings. i don't like how the pouch doesn't securely cup over the ammo i'm using. it doesn't slip, but i don't like the feel. the seat belt material is too stiff and it doesn't bend around the ammo. that being said for those who like it it's an excellent design and i have to say it's extremely useful. heck, using the same knot and everything, but with a duct tape pouch or something makes it an A+ in my book.

It's climbing accessory cord from an outdoor equipment shop. Excellent quality and soft feel.

Dental floss  works great for whipping. If I were you I'd out done super glue on. This goes for all types of whipping
