Getting knots in my release cord..
Sep 13th, 2015 at 11:53am
 
Hi friends,

i get sometimes a knot in my releasecord just from slinging. It is a relatively thin/flexible cord made from jute.

Did somebody else experience this? This is quite annoying to me.

Hey Toby,

Ya that is something I have experienced over the years. Since I switched to a thicker flat braid in the Balearic style it happens very rarely. Once every 10,000 throws I'd say. I never felt it was very annoying to me however, more of a strange anomole that I'd hold up like a child who colored within the lines for the first time and show my slinging friends around me lol.

Ya I've had it happen with really heavy ammo but I think it was the rock catching the cord on the release.
So maybe really focus on a clean release????

I wish i had a Slowmocam to see exactly how it happens.
That sling however felt quite strange today, though it doesnt twist when i hang something in the sling an let it hang down.
With my sisalrockman sling i had some good shots and whip cracking.

It only happens to me on awkward fumbly shots these days. and when it does, it's just that simple first step in a reef/granny knot. It's an easy fix, but a bit perplexing when it does happen
