Acroballistics LP-4 Sling
Aug 31st, 2022 at 3:09pm
 
Acro LP-4 sling description:
LP-4 stands for Leather pouch Paracord cords 4th generation.

The generation is how many key changes I did to conclude to this design.
The development of the sling took 2 years, the main focus was to make a high performance paracord sling. It reached and surpassed the performance you can get from single paracord cords.

The unique features of this sling are:
ē      a very durable cupped leather pouch that can sling a great variety of ammo shapes
ē      Sewn 550 paracord that prevents core pretwists and makes loading easier and faster
ē      Raised leather for a very durable and smooth transition from pouch to release cord
ē      Acro release from Dyneema and leather for light grip, powerful shots and high durability
ē      a Leather finger loop for comfort

This is a limited-edition sling. I wonít make more of this design after I use all the paracord I have sewn. (Roughly 30m of paracord)
The time spent to make an LP-4 sling would make it cost +60euros but it will be at 37(+7 shipping)= 44 euros

Attention:
Every time you use a new sling do it at a safe place in a safe way. Donít sling near other people or animals. Donít use a sling without a warm up. Increase the speed of your shots gradually.

Customization for the LP-4 sling
Length: This is the length from center of pouch to release knot. You are free to choose anything between 40cm and 100cm. In case you choose more than 100cm the price will be adjusted accordingly.

For loop size and grip type see the pictures.

type1 and type2 grips:
Type1: one finger in the loop and the finger loop strap rests on a second finger (this is my preference)
Type2: the finger loop is on one finger (classic use of the finger loop)

I have to say the development video was fascinating. I make a lot of slings but don't get the chance to test them as much and refine the design, it's great to see that kind of optimisation happening.

I have one of these as well.† I like it!† Thumbs Up

Something else to mention just in case anyone is thinking of buying one (not sure if he's sold out yet or not), these slings work perfectly fine with tennis balls.† I did have concerns when I first got the sling because the pouch is a little smaller than I would normally use for tennis balls, but no issues whatsoever.

Thanks! that was an LD-1 (not yet on sale). I didnt have an LP-4 with me in Ibiza the LP-4 might be slightly better with tennis balls than the LD-1.

Thanks again for buying! Initially the sling was designed for smaller diameter concrete ammo but overtime I realized it likes tennis balls more, it is probably the best sling I have tried for tennis balls.
In Ibiza we tasted some of your mead, good job.

Gentlemen,

I received one of these from Sarosh, and I have to say, it is an excellent sling.

It is clear a lot of thought went into this sling. To be honest the first 5 throws with it were so close to hitting my target (a small tree 30m away), I think because it has such an intuitive feel. There is good twist resistance, the release is super clean, and the sling is very lightweight. It is really hard to have all of these features in one sling, but somehow Sarosh did it. I really like this sling. Hats off to you, sir. An excellent sling.

Definitely worth purchasing.
