Funny, I almost accidentally made one like that, 'till I thought it was uneven so I took it apart and restarted.

Goat and cow herders here usually use no pre-rotations.

So turns out I've been doing Balearic style wrong this entire time. I always made a wide arc with my arm during the power-stroke, and made sure to swing it heavily and powerfully. That always produced underwhelming results, with both power and accuracy.

Now, I just bring my arm around nice and relaxed, not outstretched, producing a sort of 'flicking'. Getting far better results already, I just hope it stays that way.

Oh... turns out I've been doing it a bit wrong too. Well, now I know what to fix!

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

Unfortunately since I posted that I've been having issues with my technique yet again... it's so damn hard to diagnose problems when teaching yourself how to sling!

If you can, posting a video of your throw can help others give you some tips.

Yfir -- we don't care if you're famous and hiding your face, or just self-conscious.  Start posting some vids of your slinging.  If you don't have someone to vid you, there are ways to remotely start the camera when you're ready....

I'm famous alright!

Nah, I just don't like the privacy implications of my face being on the internet... AI can access it, facial recognition, what not? I know I can record myself without showing my face, but doing that takes a considerable amount of effort on my behalf so I'm in no rush at the moment. For now I'll just keep on trying to correct myself, if I do get around to recording I'll post it later on.
