Done with cotton twine
Maybe it's the low friction combination of cotton and steel, maybe cotton is just too stretchy, or maybe it's because I don't even know where the little bearing went but I'm done with cotton twine for now. I tried slinging the sling in the previous post into a dirt mound yesterday. I lost the ball, and I don't even know what happened. I didn't see where it hit, I'm not even sure I loosed it, it could have just fallen out. In any case, I think I'm done with cotton twine for awhile. I may still try a thread-sling made for a marble still, but later I think. It's time to focus on proven designs... the leather pouch always works, fits nearly anything and throws like a cannon. Slings still just $16.00 at SlingMoore all through Christmas, prices will go up after the new year, so this is a good time to get your sling on.
