Longest is right thumb to left elbow, and shortest was a folded hanky.

Naw, I'm a little guy.  14 to 48.  I don't usually measure slings in terms of distance, but in fingers, spans, spreads, cubits and fathoms based on my body proportions.  It's easier to remember and faster to measure, because the kids are always running off with my tape measure.

not really fathoms, as that's exact... wingspans.

You measure slings from the centre of the pouch to the retention loop.

I think you've been watching the paracord chap.
He always measures wrong Smiley


No its not the one in the video but yes that is how I measure them as well from the center of pouch to my finger (retention loop) I was not sure I had that name right thanks for confirming without me asking lol

I was about to try using Mason line for a braided probably be a simple braided split pouch tho I want one of those tight clean looking Egyptian styles but it looks kind of tough and for some reason I feel intimidated by it but I will try to do it eventually...   
but what I was gonna ask before I distracted myself was how does the masonery line preform would u recommend it or got any notes I should keep in mind I am planning on using half masonry and half trout line cause they r both about the same thickness and similar if not the same but colors look nice and bright together...

Not quite sure what you mean by perform but the mason line works very well and itís very strong so you donít need a bunch of stands so it ends up being relatively light plus itís waterproof  as for the Egyptian slings they arenít super difficult they just take a while and tightening the warps can be a bit tedious but you should definitely try it

Yeah thats about what I meant by preform was does it work fairly easily I thought it might try to unravel since it is only twisted and not like a braided line or anything, but I definitely will try my hand at making one u know any good links with  tutorials on making Egyptian style
