Hello slingers !
Jun 28th, 2024 at 9:16pm
 
I'm Tom. I'm a full time baker and slinger by heart ! I began practising and crafting them in 2020, mostly using sisal bought in hardware stores.
I was inspired by the Balearic style for my first project, but I'm always happy to see new variations and crafting techniques.
I'm planning to build a sling using a two-straps leather pouch, which truly poked my curiosity !

I'm also drawn to the use of English longbows (no puns intended). Discovering and crafting these tools
made me enjoy history in a fashion that did not enlighten me in my years at school.

I wish you all good fortune in your slinging projects !

Farewell Smiley

Welcome from Australia! I also use a natural fibre balearic-style sling, it's great.
Can't say I've fired any longbows though, that sounds super fun!
One of the best things about slinging for me is being able to throw tennis balls with it in urban areas without causing any concern.

Greetongs Kouglof,
Much welcome from Sherwood Forest.

My outlook on life is Aristotalean; on seeing an Acorn I see a potential oak tree rather than Plato's view that it is a failed copy.
