Sounds good.  Thanks!

It's also no problem though.  I'm still planning to try this style and post a video.  I just haven't had a chance yet.  I'm hoping to in the next couple weeks.

Circular over, trebuchet. And straight ahead.

Can you elaborate on the difference between these?

I'm picturing 'circular on the right' as a sidearm release.  'Bottom circular' as an underhand release.  And 'circular over' as an overhand trebuchet-like release.  But I picture a straight ahead throw being very similar to the overhand trebuchet method.


Yes. Here is my drawing.
The important thing is to go straight ahead with a constant acceleration.
For physiological reasons, I find more convenient to have the palm out

Hello Joe Meadmaker,
I hope my explain is clear.
Soon, we can see your video.
Is your foot better ?

I think I understand.  When I'm able to record a video, I'll try all the styles and we'll find out if I'm doing them as you're envisioning.


Thanks for asking about my foot.  It's doing better.  My full range of motion hasn't completely returned yet.  Also my ankle and lower leg swell up throughout the day as I move around, and the swelling goes down during the night.  But overall I'm able to move around almost normally now.

Your wound is getting better. All the better.

Otherwise, you test as you feel. Details have certainly eluded me. With two people, we understand more than we do alone.

Fantastic thread ! Really itnersting to see tht the release is possible, and hence might be realistically represented.

The position of feet is identical.
The left arm is used for an ancillary activity : camouflage or transport of ammunitions.
So, I make the assumption that the style of throwing is identical with this grip. Tested this morning, it works without problem.
I make photos to illustrate my assumption.

Photo 1 : the basket of ammunition.
Photo 2 : the starting position. Loading the sling is easy.

Photo 3 : without moving the left arm, send the sling under.
Photo 4 : let lean backwards. The grip with two fingers allows a very fine feel of the tension. Just my idea.

Photo 5 : straight ahead like the hunter.

I love this style because I find it easier than others.

Here's a text in French. A small summary.

Use of leather as protection :
illustration 1, apron under the shield.
illustration 2, protection in contact with game.

Raw or tanned skins serv as clothing for the poor.
They are also used to camouflage themselves.

A text from the 2nd century BC says that the pouch of the slings are made with leather. The text is ambiguous about the material of the straps : leather or vegetable ?

I did try this style but was absolutely terrible.  I want to do some recording but need to practice it a bit more first.

In my opinion, the difficulty is not to make a setback like in tennis but a straight line with constant acceleration.
I will watch your next video with great pleasure.
