The 30 Round
Dec 18th, 2021 at 11:25am
 
I want to add a new ďthingĒ to slinging. Itís the 30 round.† Which is simply speaking 13 meters/ 30 shots at a standard Balearic target with tennis balls. No edits, no cuts. When watching peopleís videos simply play it back at double speed if you wish or do like NOOC did and provide both the original no cut and then the edited for easier viewing. The key here is there must be a video that is unedited and uncut of the entire 30 round for it to count as one if itís going to be posted with an official score.† Wink

I do have to admit I did not make up the idea of a 30 round.† In Archery there is the 300 round which is called such because it involves shooting 30 arrows each with a maximum score of 10 points yielding a maximum possible score of 300 points.†

It takes about an hour and one thing that is well known about the 300 round is that if you really want to do it at a high level it is quite mentally taxing due to the focus over the extended period of time.

Enter the 30 round. With a 30 round you can say good bye to cherry picking. Sure you can get 5 shots in a row that are great on video but good luck doing that with 30. Especially multiple 30 rounds. Your averages WILL show up which is really great because it will help you grow. (Although donít worry for us this wonít take anywhere near an hour to do. More like 3-7 minutes).

More than that itís a great mental focus exercise for slingers and the degree of focus we need for high levels of accuracy is right up there with the hardest weapons in the world.

Anyways, NOOC and I have already done this anyone else interested?  Smiley

Great session!  I'll do one next time I have a chance.

Are you left-handed Morphy?  I thought you were slinging right in your other videos.

No Sir but for some reason my camera likes to mirror image videos. Its a Samsung Note 10+. Figured we were past these types of silly bugs but apparently not.  Grin

I think I might follow IGs lead and try. It would be great to be equally good (or bad) with both hands.

It's all good.† Saw you throwing right-handed in the competition and started thinking maybe you were ambidextrous.† Smiley

I tried slinging left a long time ago.† Kind of feels like slinging for the first time.† Sarosh has done a bunch of practice with left handed.

Yes! So glad to hear people are interested! NOOC has. I think Mersa mentioned he had, Channing said he would now two more. Lets get em posted boys!

For me I just like watching slinging. It literally rained all day yesterday. I wouldve liked nothing more than to put up a playlist of Sorg members doing 30 rounds on my tv while building my new sling. Geez come to think of it that sounds a lot like an addiction lol.

After the Christmas festivities and everyone was winding down doing their own thing I had to sneak out for a slinging session. Over the last month or so Iíve really been trying to practice more. So for the next hour and a half I slung oh a good 200 tennis balls I would say and then decided to do a little video.  Hereís the vid.

Weirdly enough my groupings got worse with quite a few more wild misses but my hit percentage actually went up a little for the video? Not sure how that works but then again donít really understand how most of the sling works so that should come as no surprise. Iíll post the full vid later, this is edited down to quick shot format.

Good session Morphy.† It threw me off at first.† I didn't read the title and was wondering why you were under the target with everything.† Grin

I've started making ice for a 30 round (don't have enough of anything else).† I should be able to do one in the next few days.† I asked Santa Claus for some tennis balls, but he didn't come through yet.† I've been told he will be visiting me on New Years Day.† Huh

I ended up buying a ton of tennis balls. Never cared for them before but  Ive got close to a 100 now between my milk crate and scattered back in the forest. Still need to try the ice balls though. Someone needs to make a nice silicone biconical mold. How cool would that be.

Excellent as usual NOOC. We need to plan a trip out to West Texas/Oklahoma and do some sling hunting. Would make for a hell of a sling video. Just need to find some time off. So maybe in 2025.

Holy moly!† Morphy, you need to post a spoiler alert or something when linking something like that.† Great round NOOC!

I think I'm giving up target slinging.† It's just shields, destruction, and great big stones for me from here on out.††Grin
