try using denum from pants and also you could use duct tape wraped kite string.
&nbsp;Nice camera rig! How'd you get one?
I am a huge advocate for slings. i think they are great. very cheap to make, fun practical and did i say cheap? anyway, its cool to use to throw a tennis ball for your dog. or to use to throw a stone 1/3 of a mile. and yes that is pretty realistic depending on the sling length and the weight of the gland(projectile in a sling) some nice paracord or nylon bootlaces are awesome to use for the strings. check out slinging.org. there are some awesome threads on the forum, pics, and instruct-ables.
can you sling around 333 yards? i can
yuppers....with ONE of my slings lol. they get kinda addictive to make too.<br />
i know ive made oer 20 of them
a good alternative to leather is gaffer/bear tape double fold it to the size u want and ya set
wow, thats rly nice. also where are you? sounds like other people are there working on other stuff.. and lastly thats a nice set of tools you have in the background there :)
What's the reason why you're wearing a helmet ? Protecting your hands while piercing the leather. Open flame of the lighter ? Sucks.
He's not wearing the helmet for safety he's wearing it because THE CAMERA IS MOUNTED ON IT!
Whap! BTW, try skipping stones w/ it. AWESOME!!!
How does it work!! Lol.
Check Wikipedia
made it and shoot it like 2000ft awsome
2000 feet? dude thats more then 1/3 of a mile are you sure?
im thinking of trying this, how accurate is it?
if you dont have leather bicicyle inner tube works great.
i made something just like this 10 years ago after having read clan of the cave bear. iti seemed very nice but i tried to use it with a larger projectile and did not warm up and ended up damaging a rotator cuff in my right shoulder(i know i was doing it wrong now but a few seconds warm up would have saved me alot of pain)
i just built a rifle sling.....
whats that ? ooh i get it!
Another video should be posted shortly demonstrating how to operate a sling.
well you swing it and then let go of the knot when you want it to shoot
pretty cool instructable (i think i will have to try it)
well i made it (but couldnt find some stuff so i did what i always do... IMPROVISE)
