West Coast Slinging

Somewhere on the rocky shores of the west coast of these United States... rocks are finding themselves back in the ocean after a wild ride in one of our slings. Adam was kind enough to send a shot of this stone's last view of the sun. I love form, it's like he's firing from a 45 degree angle but overhand rather than underhand as I do. Do you have slinging shots? Send them to slingmoore@gmail.com In other news I've been thinking a lot about a slinging contest testing accuracy. I'm thinking about five stones thrown at a standard size target, at a standard distance. Contestants could send an unedited video of their five throws... and maybe a few bucks with the best percentage taking the purse. We'll see... details to follow.

'till then, keep Slinging

  1. Hey Mr. Moore...you didnt answer my question
    can you throw smaller objects ie a golfball, in the larger slings? CPR

  2. CPR, yes you can, but the more an object outweighs the sling pocket, the more accurate you'll be, but if you're just going for distance... I've tossed a piece of mulch (weighs next to nothing) before and gotten it to go 10 feet, which is astonishing for mulch

  4. so for a beginner would you reccomend getting the smaller sling, or would you go for the bigger one to get "moore" sling for your money since they are the same price?- CPR

  5. CPR, If I were you, I'd split the difference, I have a middle size between the 2" and the 3" that's just perfect, you wanna go with that one?

  10. CPR,

    I haven't settled on a distance and target size. And if you don't have a sling... then you either have to make or (and this is my hope) buy a sling. :)
