I will be showing you how to make a simple, small sling. this sling can fire golf balls well over 200 feet with the right technique.
Step 1: Materials
-at least 178 inches of cord of some type with a thickness similar to twine.
Step 2: Cut Cord
Step 3: Prepare for Braiding
Move your finger exactly 2 inches down from where you kept the midpoint. (First picture)
Tie one of your extra pieces of cord around the three long pieces at the new holding point. (Second Picture)
We will be working with the longer side first.
Step 4: Braid Finger Hole
Second picture shows braiding done.
Then, fold the braided part down on itself, retying the extra cord around both sides of the finger hole (third picture)
Step 5: Begin Braiding Retention Line
Divide the strings into 3 pairs of strings that are on the same side (left, middle, and right) [first picture]. Braid the pairs as if they were one cord. Do this until you have 5 inches of braid. (Second picture)
Remove the tie cord and tie it at the bottom of the braid.
Step 6: Braid the Pouch
Repeat the same with the other side of the pouch, tying the two sides together at the ends.
Step 7: Braid the Release Line
Braid the release line, just like you braided the retention line in step 5, stopping once you reach 5 inches. Tie the excess cord into a single knot, to hold on to while firing the sling.
