Soooo sexy sling DM,     Jaegoor has competition !

I think I might be tempted to use some of my precious green hemp to make one.

Cheers.

That's so much simpler than the loom process I used years ago.

I might try this out and make a few more since it removes all the pains and suffering of making the hard loom.

what did you do to get the middle two strings wrapped around the loom in the second set?

The warp cords are pushed through the twisted sides of the soft loom, a slight untwisting action helps to open up the gaps.  The second warp follows the same path and goes through the same gaps, but in the opposite direction.

Nice !
Looking good.

Looks like you've been getting some practice in Thumbs Up
All styles looking smooth Smiley
Kinda early release on the fig 8 - but we'll just say you were going for distance whistle

is that the original kestro ? did i ever give it back ?
I have no clue Smiley
But I haven't seen it lying around recently - so i must have given it back lol

So the twisted cords on the sling don't cause any issues ?


Is that the max framerate for the camera ?

The max framerate for the camera is here: https://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1613573966

The cords work fine, the twist/countertwist is balanced and so as long as they dont physically stretch, they dont affect anything. The dart is new, I never did see that old one again.

Yes, it has two cords (like most other slings)
