I've stuck by what seems to be an Apache style for a while now, which evolved out of my experimentation with the Greek style. I like the simplicity of it, along with the horizontal-plane accuracy.

I have to emphatically disagree. My favorite styles cannot be described by any of these three: Kung Fu Meteor Hammer Knee-Strike style is my favorite!

KFMHKS is a unique style for sure! It's a better integration of slinging and fixed mass-on-a-string weaponry than I could've thought of, ha ha. My "meteor sling" was as much a turkey weapon as KFMHKS is a turkey style. Grin

Apache is a weird style, but I love it. So different than all the others

Oh no! Turkey style is completely different. Before CA fulfilled the prophecy and brought balance to The Forum, we had to do battle with a great troll by the name of RS.  The epic battle  against this troll was fierce. I was there, but the real reason I know about it is because I read about this great battle in an ancient scroll that has since been lost to the fires of Mount Kilimanjaro.  Many slingers were deceived by RS’s siren song, but in the end, the troll king was permanently banished from this land. Before he disappeared forever though, he left us with Turkey style.

Oh, shoot. One moment - Does the phrase "Turkey style" refer to the particular style, that the ancient Troll King RS left upon his banishment, or can it refer to any style that is considered gimmicky or impractical? I always assumed the latter, but then, I've only got 48 (After this 49) posts to my username; I'm not on top of my Slinging.org lingo to be sure.

LOL!  I understood what you meant Smiley
Kick just posted a video in the “rainy day” topic where he was throwing sock balls indoors with the RS Turkey Style... it’s an overhand throw that whips over your shoulder and at the end of the throw, your wrist bends forward like your hand is forming the head and your arm is the neck of the turkey. It’s designed to make the slinger look silly, but technically it will also launch a projectile.

     Apache is easy to learn.  For the first few months of my slinging career that's all I used.  Also, it has no wind up so it's very fast.  This could be useful for hunting purposes. 
    The disadvantages are that it's not the most accurate style and it doesn't have great range.  After using just
Apache for a few months I could get as  far as eighty or ninety yards which isn't bad but I can shoot over twice as far using other styles.

Yes a big deal is made out of it in the article written but after rereading it 10 times or so I’m convinced half of it at least is just his ideas rather than what the guy told him.

I don’t necessarily think it’s the best style out there but I came to really enjoy it because it’s so different than any other style.

I just remembered I have a real old video on Youtube of me doing Turkey Throw against a pumpkin. Didn't hit the sodding thing once and my form is terrible but still it gives you the basic idea.

I theorize that the current "Apache" is a misinterpretation. I believe it should actually be done more like a figure-8 from the same rest position, resulting in much more power. I've never seen an Apache slinger sling, so I don't know whether this is true or not, but what is considered the "Apache" method doesn't seem at all practical to me when compared to other methods.

I'm fairly sure the "Apache" title is basically random. I dont believe there is any evidence the Apache actually used that style specifically.

As confusing as it may be most people on the forum have a good understanding of our “made up names”.
Be nice to make a montage of us slinging for newbies.

At time 9:10  there is a split screen showing all the release points of the different styles.
