Wanted - custom kevlar braided sling
Feb 23rd, 2023 at 11:16pm
 
Hi all, I wanted to put it out there and see if anyone wants to braid me a sling (for a fee) made of 100% kevlar.

I have a ridiculously poor ability to braid and weave despite trying for years. So I thought I'd ask and see what the going rate would be.

I would be looking for one around 29 inches, solid woven pouch, tapered release cord. Happy to work out exact dimension for my grip style etc if there is a reasonable offer.

I understand not everyone has kevlar lying around, but please check out https://www.emmakites.com/collections/kevlar-line-1

Also a proper way of cutting would necessary for the maker (normal scissors are a pain to cut kevlar with).

Im in no rush, just keen to see if anyone is interested.

Thanks all!

Please PM me if you're interested in doing a 'commissioned piece'

You should hit up Kinetic Slinger on YouTube. I got one of his braided kevlar slings. They are great.

+1 to IG's comment.

Chaney also recently joined the forum under the same name (Kinetic Slinger).  I don't think he's posted anything yet though.

I hit him up on Instagram.  I can get his address from his account, and I'm sure he won't mind, just want to confirm first.

@CrazyBrave333 - Yep, he's all good with it.  I sent you a message with his email address and told him he would be hearing from you.

Just following your idea man.  Chaney was a great suggestion.  I have a sling from him to, but he didn't come to mind for some reason.

Chaney makes a fine sling . Full Kevlar I havenít seen , he usually has poly in the pouch weave but Iím sure he can make it work.
