So I finally got around to sending Joe Meadmaker his SITH today… I hope you like it man- it’s Kevlar. I hope to see it in one of your videos one day! 

PS… it can be used for flaming projectiles… or maybe I should have sent one to Timpa…

Got the package from CrazyBrave333 today.  Kevlar slings!

The one with the solid pouch was originally intended to go to CA, but he thoughtfully sent it to me instead.  So maybe we'll think of something special to do with that one.

Thanks man! Thumbs Up

I received this lovely sling with some bonus 3D printed glandes from Kris_Holla last week. Some great craftsmanship on this I have to say, the transitions are excellent.

I'm not 100% sure to be honest, Kris_holla is best to explain. I know it's dacron line and I'd guess it's a mix of sewing and whipping and then possibly melting the result(?) Looks super clean though

I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler

Hi everyone,
My sling for the Curious Aardvark Memorial SITH has just been dispatched to Iron Goober. It has jute cords with leather pouch & finger loop. The length as made, mid pouch to finger loop, is 865mm (34 inches), but the leather finger loop makes this adjustable downwards. You just reposition the knots.
The pouch is 195 x 50 mm (7 ¾ x 2 inches) & is based on one of the ‘York slings’ (object number 15770) published in The Archaeology of York Vol.17: The Small Finds Fasc.16: Craft, Industry and Everyday Life: Leather and Leatherworking in Anglo-Scandinavian and Medieval York. Visit here for a copy https://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archiveDS/archiveDownload?t=arch-1026-1/dis
semination/pdf/AY17-16-Leather_and_leatherworking.pdf slings are on page 3408 (p239 of the pdf).
The original 15770 sling pouch is much smaller 135 x 30mm (5 5/16 x 1 3/16 inches) but I enlarged it to accommodate a wider range of ammunition (up to the size of a tennis ball). I have made 'full size' smaller versions of some York slings but I need to do some more slinging before I publish here.
Both the original & my larger version have extended ends on the leather pouch. My interpretation is to use these ‘extensions’ to protect the cords against abrasion from ammunition as it leaves the pouch.
I am eager to find out how Iron Goober feels about its performance.
