I remember reading some of his posts, surely his extravagant claims were inspiring and he seemed to have a very different approach to slinging, but at the end of the day he didnt even upload a picture of a sling.

Oh yeah I feel like your current hypothesis on slings align well with apex, but Im fairly sure he also said he threw 800m+. Take what him and RS say with caution.

I do like the idea that a captive release sling is more silent at release but. I feel like theres some truth to his stories but that said he also told big fibs

A picture would've been nice but not revolutionary


A picture would be evidence that he is a little more than talk. A sling that did 800m+ would be pretty special.
I made a Y-sling for 20mm projectiles and I can tell it's not easy, the pouch was a fine work and it got destroyed in less than 100 throws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMxYv8PU0R8

A picture would give away a troll

My tribute to the good times that RS brought us.  Grin May the Holy Noodler forever bless his path.

I think the sling's performance as a main survival weapon would hinge on what it is exactly you intend to survive - And how good you are at slinging! Personally, I would not trust my own skill in the sling if it came to hunting game... But if I were taking down zombies at intermediate range, then maybe. Grin Ultimately, I think that with my level of skill with the sling, I might prefer it for taking down attackers, not prey - If I wanted a "main" weapon that I could use with more versatility I might go with a spear of some kind, like the fire-hardened stick Kick mentioned. (Maybe you could lash your knife to the end of the stick to get a better point?)

For as this ought, or ought not, expresses some new relation or affirmation, 'tis necessary that it should be observed and explained; and... a reason should be given, for what seems altogether inconceivable, how this new relation can be a deduction from others, which are entirely different from it. ..[V]ice and virtue is not founded merely on the relations of objects, nor is perceived by reason.

Very clever! I never made the connection between the noodle sling and the FSM. It all makes sense now!

My tribute is not quite as visually enlightening, but I added a fake quote at the bottom of every one of my posts. I imagine if a movie was made about Jesus the Noodler, the role would have to be played by Russel Crowe... or perhaps Terry Crews

...for posterity, and in case I change the quote to something else later:

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES! Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler
