Hello from Indiana
Jul 1st, 2021 at 10:35pm
 
Hi!
Reporting from northwest Indiana.

I used to sling somewhat regularly, with my twin brother out back on the old farm property my mom lives on. had a barely-used account here, but couldn't remember the username. haven't done much slinging since moving out into an apartment in town though, several years ago.
I've been going to parks nearby to sling lately, made some rusty balls to reduce risk to structures and lawn mowers.
mostly throwing apache and greek overhand lately, but...

I read KnollSlinger's intro thread recently. made an eye-height sling, played with it.
was out with my brother today and we got it working fairly well. the balls move in straight lines Shocked Grin it was great.

Excellent. Welcome back.  Now you can tie his record of a 1/4 mile and report back to us on how you did it!

“My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. 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
