Favorite Sling makers
Jan 20th, 2021 at 2:04pm
 
I've asked this question before I think but it's been years. I thought it would be interesting to see peoples tastes on sling making and how it's changed if at all.

My 5 are-
1. Jaegoor obviously
2. Walter for reasons I've said many times in the past
3.Hubert for similar reasons
4. Teg for being ridiculously knowledgeable on sling making and his slings are amazing as well

And my newest addition at number 5- JudoP. For very clean looking designs. His slings have come a long way and they are beautiful. Especially the Balearics and hybrid apaches. 

Well done at your awesomeness gents. You all deserve props.

This thread should be called “how to hurt the feelings of everyone except Jaegoor Grin

What?! I didn’t make the list?! You scum!

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

Lol...So is this like asking your parents who their favorite child is?  I could've sworn we did this thread before  and got a lot of responses.

My slings are WORLD renowned for existing and "having been made". I've heard them described as "pretty good" and "not too bad", why aren't I on the list!

   Jaegoor and Walter are also my top two.  After that it gets hard to pick.  There are so many artists here.

Morphy, I'd like to expand your list with some (mostly older members) whose work I always enjoyed for different reasons. And here we go in no particular order:
Timothy Potter, _kava_, Pikaru, lakeslinger.

Kava and Timothy Potter were my early inspirations on sling making.  Pikaru made some very interesting cultural slings that I loved. Miss that guy. He was cool.

What about Hubert? Teg was already mentioned, but those two always impressed me.

Hubert has consistently been one of if not my favorite sling maker of all time here. Very clean looking slings that work great. No idea how I forgot him.
