How to sling - beginner to advanced
Dec 10th, 2023 at 11:26pm
 
I just thought it might be useful to have a video with beginner to more advanced slinging concepts in one place. I used a lot of concepts from things I've learned from others here, (e.g. the foxtail toy from Jaegoor)

Same here.

I also need to learn how to control curve while slinging. I saw your videos on it a while ago, but I haven't had the chance to give it much of a try yet.

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!”

Excellent video IG!  I wouldn't have guessed that all the topics you covered would fit into a video that short.

Nice video, I think there's a lack of accessible slinging tutorials that present all the information up front for noobs. It could always be better but this is a great start

Nice video! I really liked how you offered several ways to practice timing without full power. I learned to sling as a kid, got really good at it in college then took a few decades off. Now I am trying to regain my former skills without injuring my (old) shoulder.

I went ahead and binged on your channel. I especially liked "copying other slinger's styles". You do a good job of pointing out differences without a hint of criticism. Thanks!
