My longest ever sling is 2m, made out of 1mm dyneema cords for slinging glandes extremely far(ranges exceeding 400m with lead and just barely 400m with clay).

Shortest sling is 10 inches(25cm), extremely short sling with max range of 70m(which is still not bad, I can throw with hand only about 40-50m may and it is quite useful in closed spaces just like a pistol!)

The longest sling I've made is about 52 inches (132 cm).† The shortest normal sling I've made is around 28 inches (71 cm) long.† But my shortest sling was part of a multi-pouched sling, and that was 24.5 inches.† I have slings that are shorter, but they were all made by others.

longest sling I'm comfortable using would be about 42 inches.
I can use longer, but there's very little point Smiley

Around 16 inches is the shortest I've used.
used as my 'putter' when playing sling golf Smiley

Everyday sling is around 30-32 inches.

When I first started slinging I made some ridiculously long slings... seven, eight, nine feet.  I was experimenting.  I've also made some very short slings just for fun.... maybe twelve or fourteen inches.  I know some of the guys here like short slings.  I don't have any use for a sling shorter than 24".  My ideal length is 38".

@blnkfrst
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

143.5cm/56.5 inches is my longest. Made from one piece of paracord and that long because that's how long the paracord was when I got it Cheesy I use it for tennis ball throwing for dogs.

It's surprisingly comfortable and really fun.
I actually don't know about shortest.
