Help me identify this sling
Jan 6th, 2021 at 11:03am
 
Whose sling design is this?  There are a lot of common elements from other slings, but there are also some unique-ish details... the whipping, the circular leather tab on the paracord.  Does anyone recognize this from slinging.org members past or present?

That circular tab is definitely familiar but I can't put a name to it. Where did you find it?

It's a guy in western Washington State who apparently just started selling on Amazon fairly recently.

https://www.amazon.com/Shepherd-Sling-Shot-Rock-Black/dp/B07TZWTZ38

I was hoping he would have already introduced himself here at some point in the past, but if not, I hope he does soon.  We need more enterprising sling-makers to talk to each other and help each other out instead of seeing the world as a zero-sum game of competitive selling.   (That goes for all of you other lurkers too!) 

The only person in the last several years who it might be is MightyHunter, but he never posted any sling pics. PalouseSling is from the wrong side of Washington State, so unless he moved to the coast, I don't think it's him.  Lots of other people give introductions without saying where they are from though.

Come on folks... Please introduce yourselves!  You might even sell a few slings to us forum members! Grin

You're right... also on Etsy with the same photos.  Looks like he gets 1 or 2 reviews a month.  I haven't run the analytics for his products on Amazon yet.  His name is Hans

I actually just came across him the other day, while lurking on etsy. Since he hasn't been on Etsy very long,  i wonder how he got so many reviews, and i dont get many. But oh well. I know how mine hold up. Maybe if i post my letter when i got mine in a museum.

Apparently he’s been selling on Amazon since 2019 too.

Good find Sarosh! I remember Slingky.

It looks like he disappeared again after a couple months.

I knew he'd been on the forum. That circular tab is really distinctive.

Eyelets have never worked out for me. I've tried them in webbing and leather. Last a week or two with the boys throwing stones they can handle. But rarely a full throwing session with me if I'm chucking big rocks. Just rip right through.

@kilisi, According to the description on Amazon, slingky uses a rubber o-ring under the eyelet to help prevent ripping. That o-ring would distribute the forces over a slightly larger area and compensate for irregularities in how the eyelet was compressed onto the leather.

I use 2 or 3 layers of leather when I put an eyelet on a sling, and I install it with a benchtop eyelet press to get uniform compression.  The handheld eyelet tools never worked well for me. And the hammer-and-die method for installing eyelets probably works fine in skilled hands, but my results were inconsistent when I tried it before I bought a press.
