I haven't seen a list of what is good design and what is bad design.  I've inferred a lot from offhand comments, but don't understand grippy vs slick pouches.  Joe was worried that it would be too grippy and you didn't like it because it wasn't grippy enough.  Can you explain a little?

That is good question
What I am talking about is the stone moving or rotating in the
Pouch
Some slingers this for either a spin or a more instant release
Or other reasons. I mostly sling at a shorter range with as muc
h power as I can muster
Slinging is often very intuitive  and different slingers have
Different objectives
Fine the Slinging kit that works for you and perfect it

@jack

If you watch this sling throw in slow motion, the projectile kind "sticks' to the pouch for a while after the release cord is released. It takes about 16 milliseconds for the cord to get out of the way of the stone before it is completely free from the sling.  Some slings will allow the stone to slip more than others. In this case, it is 'sticky' and starts the stone rolling which can actually stabilize the projectile and allow it to go straighter/further.

Thanks, that makes sense.

I'm considering putting BDU material (military fatigues) on either side of the innertube.  That might be a better surface. The fatigues are lightweight, rip-stop, no stretch and abrasion resistant.  Gluing it on with Shoe Goo will probably leave the surface a little grippy.  I think the innertube is going to hold fine by itself, but that BDU material should make it practically indestructible.

I used bicycle inner tubings often to wrap handles and stuff and really liked the material. After some time however I noticed that when the material is exposed to day light and under some strain, it will quickly develop small rips and tears until it falls apart. Without permanent strain that might not happen, but it might be wise examining the pouch now and then.

Another option is cutting the inner tube into thin straps
And braiding a balearic style pouch
I did that once and was surprised it had very little stretch

Update:

I've moved on for now.  The innertube butterfly pouch actually worked pretty well but even doubled up I could easily pull the cord until the holes failed.  I ended up attaching it like a seatbelt sling and it worked pretty well.  I think there may still be some uses though.  It would be fine for a seatbelt sling and I'm considering using it as a backing for airbag material.  That airbag material is amazing, but it's too floppy so an innertube backing might make a good combo.

I got seatbelt material and I'm very happy with that for now.  Whenever I get around to trying the innertube airbag combo I'll update.  Probably not of much interest to many of you, but I like experimenting with materials that are basically trash.

Repurposing garbage into something useful is always a good idea, because it prevents waste and it allows you to make stuff for practically no cost.

I think stretchy pouches in general might risk snagging projectiles on release, but it could work if it's tough rubber.

I've recently been looking into waterproof alternatives for the leather covering used on balearic slings. PVC or PU leather is one option, but a tough rubber material may also work. The issue then would be the stitching holes tearing.

Try airbag material.  It's made to withstand glass flying at high speed and it's got to do that really well or the manufacturer gets sued.

I had to cut the airbag out with a serated blade. It had some rips from that and my friend tried to grab both sides of the rip and tear it further.  No luck.  He's almost supernaturallly strong and had long enough pieces to get a good grip and he couldn't rip it through even one more thread. That stuff is almost bulletproof.  It's silicon coated nylon.  Airbags can't be reloaded so they are worthless trash after one use.  The junkyard didn't charge me for the airbag or the seatbelts.

I made one from my son's neglected bike tire.  I just used the seat belt sling method and it works just fine.  It's in a coat pocket somewhere, but as soon as I come across it, I'll see how well it endured two years of pocket lint.

I would use rubber cement to glue a thin canvas or denim on the back side so you get the grip but not the stretch. If you do that, it should hold an eyelet better too.

…is it time to resurrect the trash sling challenge?  The worst material I ever  (successfully)used was cantaloupe rind 😂
