Iíve given the sling IG sent to me quite a good go, and I will say the wee thumb tab release is actually pretty good! It took some getting used to, but I find it helps with getting a clean release; more so it seems to help with adjusting wrist angle too. Feels really deft and itís something I want to try incorporating into my next Balearic sling.

Cheers again !

Joe's sling arrived this morning !
It is indeed a thing of beauty and inspires me to try harder.
Like a bowstring with a loop and pouch -first throws are favourable and I'm looking forward to taking the dog lead for a walk to give it a good try out.
Many thanks Joe.
😁👍😁🖖

You're welcome buddy!

One thing I forgot to mention, the leather part of the pouch is attached to the cord at a slight angle.† I know most people put the finished side of the leather on the outside, but I do the reverse.† So the way the leather is connected, the finished side of the leather should hold the projectile.† You may have been using it that way already.† Just wanted to mention it.

Something else, I did do some ice slinging with the sling you sent me.† I'll admit I was a little worried about the pouch holding an ice ball well.† It's certainly large enough, but also pretty flat.† But there was no issue whatsoever.† It's a quicker release than I expected, and that took a little while to get used to, but no misfires.† I wanted to try some snowball slinging with it, but I missed the chance with the one snowfall we had.† The weather already seems to be turning mild here.† I think snow is done for the season.  Sad

Cheers Joe, I had noticed the offset and that accounts for releasing unexpectedly far to the left.

I'm delighted you find the release is quick and I designed it as " a sling for all" so a beginner should find it easy but an experienced slinger would be happy with it.

As to the snow, climate change is here and we need to adapt !

Slinging will become useful again !!

😁😆😂🤣🤪

Almost forgot I received my SITH slings.
Received these Absolutely gorgeous slings from GT
Very impressed with his choices of slings to send to me .
A balearic and a seatbelt. Almost feel like he knows what I really suit but like many other people would like me to submit to the shorter natural fiber sling.
Both are very well made and clear to me that thereís enough detail in the execution that itís been made by a slinger not just a sling maker.
Unfortunately Iím yet to take either to the range even though itís literally in my back yard . As I type this is see the obscene nature of that comment. But in my defence Iíve probably taken less than 100 shots in the past 2 months. I had an injury to my wrist and slinging aggravated it a lot . I continued to work and slowed down on slinging and archery. Itís almost 100% . Weird injury, I feel it only in tension not compression. Anyway enough rambling.
Thanks GT

Heal up brother.† Wrists and ankles can take crazy amounts of time to get back.† Certainly no fun, but there's no rushing it either.
