Well I think instantly to the designs like
“Ysling” “kestros” “captured release” “compoundsling” “multi pouch” “triggering sling” “shotgun sling”


Personally I’ve played around with a few of these but only a few seemed to have any real appeal.

Here’s a picture of the triggering mechanism I came up with . I was very happy when I came up with the idea for the first time. Simple and very easy to use and reload , but it made ammunition variability almost impossible so it held no true promise for my applications.

I won’t tell exactly how it works see if anyone figures it out.

I had nearly the same reaction as stoneslinging Grin I had no idea how in the world it would work!
After a while looking at it, I showed it to my brother, who came up with a probable way to make it work Shocked

The only other really unique sling I can think of is the cestrosphendone / kestrophendone dart sling (http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1074713443, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5PWq3XqGGw, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mMUOZZBDuY).

Another sling that is at least sort of unique is the staff sling.

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!”

Oh yeah!  Definitely a topic that's come up before.  Smiley

These are both pretty long, but here's a couple threads for you to look through.

Non-Conventional Sling Designs - https://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1227069230

On my YT channel I also have a playlist dedicated to experimental slings: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLncv16P831PSJHZLp54PsDv1W9Gl1Z5eE

Here's my Double Barrel Sling.  As long as you use consistently sized ammo you'll get a pretty tight shot group.  Or you can use both pouches to sling larger objects like snowballs.

2) Aussie

And photo 2: the fur pouch for cold countries.  Cheesy
