Semi unique sling design for trade or purchase.
Mar 5th, 2021 at 10:03pm
 
I am relatively new to slinging, and this is my first sling design, as well as my first sling. So I am curious to see what seasoned slingers think of this. I am also curious if anyone would be interested in having one custom made for them, for purchase or trade. So far it has a clean release, and a decent strength. I used standard paracord for the core with a double snake knot tied at around 5 inch intervals to help avoid twists. Then I ran the paracord through a piece of soft leather for the finger loop. After I had the core to matching lengths, and a nice finger loop. I simply tied a cobra weave with micro paracord up the full length of the retention end, and around the finger loop core strands. Then I finished it off with a multi wrap tight constrictor knot. The release end was done similarly, except for the release knot I did a double layer constrictor knot giving the whole thing a solid, well balanced feel. To finish it off I alternated the color of cord, and tied two final constriction knots at the pouch attachment points. I feel pleased with the results, and I feel she is a purty little creation. Any thoughts and feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am working on a new style of sling design currently, and will post the finished results asap. I tried to post more than one picture to show details, but still have to learn the kinks of this forum

I added an x into the pouch to accomodate larger, and smaller ammo.

This sling feels like it is meant to be on your finger permanently with how comfortable it is.

I got to say I am enjoying how this sling preforns. What kind of trade did you have in mind  joe_meadmaker? I also plan on making more of this style. The measurement on this one is about 31 inches. The smiley x on the pouch helps make it universal for large and small ammo. The leather straps make the release feel nice and clean. I am curently making two different designs as well. Thanks again for the kind words. Any tips or advice is also greatly welcome. Sling on brothers
