DIY wrist slings

Recommended Posts

wasn't sure what to start this under feel free to move. While checking out Archery Talk DIY section.came across a thread about making your own wrist slings. Bought some camo n black paracord. While watching the Eagles get beat decided to give it a go. Need to get a hole punch to make the leather bracket to finish it . Images below links.

Guy named Iceman (aka bowhunter4e on YouTube ) showed how to make'm. If your interested

Well for a pro like your self probly does no good . for a novice like me it looks cool

 

 

 I never said i was a pro... A natural maybe but not a pro... :cheers: ... Yeah i've seen them on other bows and they do look cool but i would think they have another purpose..

any way it allows you to have a relaxed grip without fear of drop'n the bow.

 

 

 

  Thats kinda what i thought.. didnt know for sure.. eh, i wont be need'n one.. I "naturally" tight'n my grip after my release... :whistling:

Very cool and nice job on your repro of it from the videos! I always use a sling as well, as you said, it allows you to have a relaxed and "semi-open" grip with the fear of the bow falling out of your hand on release. :up:

Thanks! The 2nd 1 I did was a little more clean than the one in the pic . Lol the hardest part of making these is not getting screwed up on the cobra weave. Had to start over twice after I was half way done .
