Nice looking sling Thumbs Up
so what's the extra bit of cord for on the release cord.

I like the thinner cord for release, makes sense. Only reason I can think of for the extra bit would be to slow it down.
But I can see it being really annoying as well.

So what's it for ?

I'm not certain.  My first thought is that because of the very thin release cord, extra cordage has been left so the receiving slinger can make adjustments if desired (change the knot, convert it to a tab, etc.).

On that note, I am probably going to adjust it.  The release knot isn't quite where I like it to be with the grip I normally use.  But it will be very simple to move it.

Maybe Gaius can chime in if there is another reason for the longer cord.

Yes I left a little for adjustment. On the one I have that is just like it I cut it almost all the way off. It’s one of my experimental designs, not the prettiest looking, but it performs well. And the colors don’t match at all…

i still dont understand why you send an experimental sling design. Make something that works perfectly, instead of an experiment

To get feedback from another slinger.

Also, "experimental" doesn't mean it's not a fully functional sling, just that the maker might be looking for ways to improve it.  I know I've made very few slings (probably none) that I determined could not be improved in any way.  I think every sling I make is an experiment, at least to some extent.  Whether it's testing a new braid, a new pouch, different cordage, etc.

It’s a fully functional sling and it does work perfect, I really like the design of it and wanted to know what other slingers thought of it. It is only experimental in the way that the entire idea of it is different than any other sling that I’ve ever made and seen.

Also I improved the design a little when I made joe’s compared to the original

I dont have a problem with you, but i hate the words "functional sling/high performance sling". That usually implies, that no work was put into the making of the sling. You clearly put some thought in the sling, but is there really not a better(looking) way to make it ?

Of course! These are just the only colors I had for this sling, and I wanted it to be as close to the original as possible.

I think ive actually seen several slings like this before. Its always good to try new things. I think, in all honesty, Ive yet to make a sling that was entirely optimized. Everything is experimental until you decide its finished and Ive just never quite hit that point yet. Theres always that nagging feeling that something could be just a little better.  Wink  I totally get the mindset Gaius.

The closest place to me that might have similar materials is 45 minutes away from me. I never make special trips to get slinging supplies. Especially to only make one sling. The only thing that I’d even change is have orange microcord instead of black.

Sorry. Aber nichts ist an dieser sling neu. Was ist experimentel daran? Wirklich schön ist auch nichts daran. Funktional? Eine kurze Zeit wird sie funktionieren. Viel arbeit haben sie nicht investiert. Waren es mehr als fünf Minuten? Oder zehn.? Ich Frage für einen Freund Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Sonnenbrillen für morphy. Tongue
Sorry dafür das ich meinem schlechten Ruf gerecht werde. Aber ich sage gerne was ich denke. Es ist auch wirklich nicht boshaft gemeint. Ich weiß auch nicht wieviel Erfahrung sie haben. Ich arbeite mit Kindern und Teenager. Ich sehe was sie leisten können wenn sie es wollen. Ich zeige ihnen gerne Ergebnisse für einen Vergleich .
Wichtig ist jedoch das der Empfänger sich darüber freut. Ist das der Fall ,so sind meine Worte bedeutungslos. Das senile gequatsche eines alten Mannes. Cool Cool
