Ok Ive been pretty quiet on this thread, but I have a really simple abstract ammo idea for yall

Wet ammo. The spray off the ammo lets you see the spin orientation and you can compare that with wrist orientation. That relationship will be different for every sling/ammo/style combination, but you can easily visualize the relationship between wrist roll and ammo rifling with a video camera. Heres an example.

well anyone who's ever slung a tennis ball for a dog - will be familiar with wet ammo Smiley

If they're not retrieving from water, even on a hot dry day, the slobber builds up.

It's why I make waterproof ball slings that you can load without touching the ball Smiley

Also keep the slobbery thing in a bag between sessions.

It's definitely a nice effect - as long as it's water Smiley

Not sure if this thread is dead/over but it feels like the right place to put it:

We have a big box of large miscellaneous nuts in the shop at work, 3/4-10 mainly, I brought one to a parcel scale and they're about 50 grams which seems like a good weight for glandes. I imported a nut from McMaster into fusion and made a socketed football shape so it would rest dead center. In theory I would be able to make a mold with silicone and cast them in a tough resin.

Agreed.  That is extremely cool!

I supposed this challenge should also be cut off soon.  Everyone get them in before the end of the year!

How hard is it to find american sizes where you are? I'll have to make a metric nut version for ease of finding materials.

Just measure the nut, much easier Smiley
Use a 6 sided cylinder and measure across the points for the cylinder diameter.

How did you glue it together ?
Otherwise not sure it'll last past the first throw.

If you embed and glue the nut fully in one side and add some threads to the other side and use something like polyurethane, that would be pretty durable.
Or thread both sides for a centrally mounted nut.

Oh and I'll add the sling-,in-the-dark ammo here as well Smiley

I have it as a friction fit currently, probably going to use some CA glue for test throws.

My main worry with using threads is ease of casting, I was initially leaning towards threads on one side and threading into the nut and threads on the other side. I ended up using the socket because it was easy to print and easy to reproduce.

Ideally I could cast one side with a plug and then embed the nut when when casting the other side, or just mass produce the halves and glue a nut in.

One thing I do love is that if you lightly hold it at both tips between your thumb and forefinger and blast compressed air across it it spins with zero wobble. I'm excited to try it out
