Lots of great shooters on this video, but one single style. Balearic of course.

That really was some brilliant shooting there by those guys. Some really good consistency within their shots and its always nice to hear that ring of metal when they hit the centre.
Where they throwing dried clay balls?

Always great to see videos of other slingers at this level, especially within communities as wide as the ones shown (from younger 20s, to older generations). It really inspires you with confidence and helps you tell yourself, I could reach that level some day Cheesy

Great.  A lot of good slingers. 
Must be nice to live in a sosiety where slinging is considered normal, must make practice must easier.  Bet most of those exelent slingers don`t have to hide away to sling off a few shots Wink

He makes a perfect bullīs eye starting at 2:06. Right in the center

Gregorioīs shot starting at 3:00 smashed the projectile. are those rocks or concrete?

I believe they use rock as part of the tradition.

Diego Camunas, the famous sling maker, makes an appearance at 3:29 ( I think itīs him)

One of the best slinging videos indeed. Impressive techniques and accuracy. I am curious what the first shorter distance was.

In the shape, structure and position of each stone, there is recorded a small piece of history. So, slinging them, we add a bit of our history to them.

You will have to use a web proxy from another country. There is an iTunes soundtrack which is probably why the video is restricted in some countries.

I'm fairly sure it was 20m. There is a small tree behind the fence which appears about 2/3 the way down in the longer distance scenes.

(According to their web site they sling at 30 and 45 paces, with a pace being 65cm, which works out at a little bit less than 20 and 30m.)

anyone notice their slings aren't very long? i'd say none of them went above 30 or so inches. antonio, the second slinger especially so.
