I just tried it with my longest 32" PJ sling and some quarter size clay balls. Seemed to work ok, also seems like a bit more power since you get a couple extra rotations to get things up to speed. Also, once you learn to "feel" the sling you can put the clay balls pretty much where you want em' to go. I was actually a bit more accurate with this method then with my Byzantine style.  I think it does work better for the longer slings though. A shorter sling can't take full effect of all the extra momentum you build up.

I find longer slings better suited for the Helicopter style also.  Here's something you'll figure out anyway, if you haven't already, Frank.  When using the Helicopter style you can control the arc of your shot by where you center your twirl.  If you twirl with your hand as far to the right as possible you'll get a very high arc on your shot.  I'm assuming that your right handed.  The farther left your hand is when you twirl the straighter or flatter your shot is.  If you want a line drive shot with no arc,  twirl with your hand behind your head and the sling rotating over your left shoulder.  Don't forget to reach back for some real power.
