Hello Hello my name is mo
Sep 3rd, 2021 at 11:57pm
 
Just got into slinging after I saw a video on YouTube. Then I discovered this awesome website and have been surfing the forum for the last week. I attached a pic of a Rockman sling I made (I hope it shows up). This sling works very well. I was able to get 160 meters with it a few times.

It is my second sling. I made a @mersa sling two days earlier. It works pretty well but I like this one more. Any criticism is much appreciated.

Sorry about that. I will need to figure that out. Thanks @Rat Man for the assist.

Also, I'm from the USA. Grew up in Texas but I haven't been there in several years. I've moved a lot, currently in Colorado, will be in Utah in a week and will probably move again soon after.

I subscribe to the guy who posted that video. Didn't know slings were a thing until he posted that vid.  Now I have a new hobby.

cheers for the video link mmf, that is one neat one cord sling he makes.

And with instructions even I can follow !

But why have you gots bits of string poking out of the release cord on your rockman ?

The string poking out is a result of me tapering the release cord. If there is a better way to do it, I'd love to hear. The braid leaves the pouch with 6 strings which I doubled up to do a three strand braid. Then I drop a string every couple inches. I wanted to give the strings enough slack to prevent pulling on the braid. If that doesn't make sense, I will try to explain differently.

I really want to learn some more braiding techniques so I can make fancy slings like some I see in the pictures section. Reply #5289 from @Teg is my favorite. http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1172017416/5289#5289
If I could do that, I would cherish it like a heirloom.

If your braid is tight enough, you can just cut the strands
