You don't need much to create a slingers historical outfit. A large, cheap military wool blanket to serve as a tunic cloak, a leather belt to hold it together and some foot and leg wraps and you can jump back thousands of years in time. it is beneficial for accuracy.

Oh boy, I had completely forgotten about the ammo bag on the arm. Two sources means I have to try it.

I also means they are definitely taking their ammo with the right hand, sorry Jaegoor  Wink

You can also see a bag on the trajan column.  Wearing in a coat.  Is very impractical.  In a fighting situation, you have to move.  As skirmishers, you may have to run fast too.  They do not have a shield and stones on the same arm.  It doesn't work very long.

All throws have their plusses and minuses.

The thing to remember, or realise. is that ALL 'styles' are simply the pre-amble to the release.
And there are only two release types.

vertical and horizontal.

Everything that comes before the throw/release is simply waving your arm about in the hope that it will add extra power/accuracy to the release.

So probably best to re-categorise most throw 'styles' as windup styles.

There are ONLY two THROWING styles Smiley

All good things come in threes.  😁.  Above, to the side, below.  Numerous other litter types can be created from these.  I've been telling this for years.  It's no different from martial arts.

This. You can then be more specific and say "vertical figure 8, diagonal figure 8 etc." But the throw itself is wind up not pitch.

I disagree. Kung Fu meteor hammer style might actually be a kick instead of a throw.

I am not agree with you.
My english isn't very good but I'll try to explain my idea.
A style is only the result of several factors. The purpose (hunting, war, herding) and traditions will define the style. Question : did the Greeks used the greek style to direct the herd, is this style suitable for keeping the animals ?
Today, we sling for fun and our "traditions" are the search for performance in terms of distance and target accuracy.
Back home, kids used to fish schrimps by hand. It's not very productive but it's a great game. "Great" fishers will tell you that this is not a good technique because they do better, do as this, etc...
We must not fall into this wrong.
If an Indian hides his arms before throwing, I think we can say that it is HIS style even if it is not our way of seeing.
Just my idea.

Is this for me? If so that would be much appreciated. 


Here's an example.
However, if I were going into battle, I would fold the sides of the cloak even more so that it doesn't restrict the range of motion. I'd also use a penannular brooch to give the pouch more support.
Maybe I'll use it in my next video...
