Friction fire tip
Jul 1st, 2022 at 8:31am
 
Considering the above average braiding skills of most slingers, a tip for succesfullly starting friction fires is to use a flat braid cord instead of a round braid cord for the bow. It grips the spindle better and keeps it more stable, less chance of it flying out the hole, and it also adds durability

If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle

Happy Slinging, and God bless my friend.
