All About Pole Spears & Slings What is it about that traditional method of the early hunter/gatherers under the water? These devices are indeed interesting and effective.

Custom Slings

Hello,
Dad and I tried our hand at making some slings from scratch. Only part we did not make was the flopper. What do you think? Any suggestions? Anyone looking for a custom wood sling?

Very nice! I make my own slings as well. It adds to the fun when you built your own weapon.

I really like a shooter that sinks. That way, when you are rooting a grouper out of the rock, etc., it stays down there where you leave it. Therefore, ebony and black and white ebony are favorites of mine. I also have a handle made from lignum vitae that I use often.

Great work. I'd love to see more.
