I'm still wondering why this hasn't been stickied; or better yet; Put in the Guides and Articles section.  Huh


OK Here it is stickied. As a Guides and Articles entry it would need to be tidied up quite a bit. Feel free to do it.



Aussie,

I will clean this up and make it ready to Guides and Articles. I would like to use both yours and PJs tutorials as I feel they both add a lot of value.

Liberty Dog,

When switching to a "seatbelt sling" for a heavier sling I always find myself being a bit more accurate also.

i tried it out this morning before work....i was letting my truck warm up and i thought it was a great time to sling a few rocks with my new seatbelt sling.
what i found is that if i use it with the natural pouch side it throws to the left(using byzantine style)
so i remembered aussie mentioning that if you use the other side of the pouch( that would be the non-natural pouch side) that it would work much better. so i tried it and i am very pleased with its performance thus far. can't wait to do some more slinging.

I think I am following you on the natural and not natural pouch sides. I noticed in your picture the the R&R cords were on the inside of the pocket. After making over 100 slings of this design I have found that cords on the outside of the pouch is where it's at. Next one you make try it out, I promise you will like it better.

I originally envisaged the pouch being used with the folded edges turned out. Refer to the first photo in the thread which shows what would be the inside of the pouch. However some have found they get better results using it the other way, so the folded edges are towards the inside, the opposite of the original photo. I tried both ways and didn't really find much difference; find what suits you.

As Aussie said the first picture in this thead has the Release and Retention cords on the outside of the pouch. In the picture you posted your cords are on the inside of the pouch. It is just personal preference, my arguement for cords on the outside is that I feel it gives the stone a better roll out.

It is just a personal preferece LD. But I do think it makes a little bit of a difference.

This is not my first picture if this sling in this thread, but the first time I told you all this was intended to be my new long distance golf ball sling.  Today there was no rain and no people, and still daylight, on the football field, and so I could finally try it.
It is 50" folded, so I used my favorite long sling style, overhand with pirouette.
After some tweaking and fumbling with both release knot placement and the style itself, I was suddenly able to sling those golf balls around 100 meters, in an almost straight line, horizontally and vertically,  and in the direction I wanted. 
I call that a success Smiley.

I prefer the inside, like this.  After trying both sides, it seemed best for my use, just because Wink.
But, both sides is fine.
By the way, this webbing is a little less wide than real seat belts.

The more I use seatbelt slings the more I like them.  It's like "they can't be this good... they're too easy to make!"  Even with all of the different slings of many types I have to choose from every day I'm finding a seatbelt sling to be my go to.  It's all good.  All of my young slingers in the neighborhood and I are loving seatbelt slings.

I believe that this is the video that PJ PMed me. I can't find it in my inbox but this looks similar at least.
