Hello from Southern Idaho!
Aug 19th, 2023 at 11:17am
 
Hey! I have been lurking this form for a loooong time. Since about 2016/17 when I started slinging and I wanted to finally make an account to ask you folks about a few things, to chat here generally and to just have a good time! It's a busy life these days but I am hopeful to be able to chill and yammer here!

This forum has been such a big help in learning how to sling over the years. I've fiddled with a ton of styles. Overhead, Underhand, Figure 8, helicopter, Just as of yesterday I figured I would start experimenting with the greek throwing style which I honestly find to work very well!
Added my collection of different slings in the pictures. I actually gave some away to some friends recently to try and get them into slinging. I find them all to sling very well!

Anywho, its been a long time since I've posted on an older style forum so if I am makin any mistakes in the formatting ill try and edit and polish em.

Be well!

Welcome!

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!”

Thanks! I am very proud of the slings I make! And thanks for shrinking the image I wasn't sure exactly how to do that

No problem at all.  We do have a page with Windows and Mac instructions here: https://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1676672557.  If you're using something else I'll be happy to help you track down the instructions.
