    Just roughed out. Looks like it should work. Never made a stick sling so any advice welcome. Also only ever tried to make one atlatl, so any input on those welcome to. This is about 24 inches long.... IMG_20201007_184014.jpg

      Looks good I have a Indian wild Mockorange walking stick sling I’ve been wanting to do this winter.
      your the first to do a whole long stick that I’ve seen “here” in a long while , I like the feel of long handles

      Thanks Clint. You've been doing some cool builds to, interested to see your mock orange build. Maybe the long handle adds a counter balance?

      You could also make it where you wrap string from fork to fork and make your knock on your dart like a arrow knock

      I just tried that and it worked really well, I think it might work just fine with a normal sling pocket and bands. The arrow spear could fit into the hole in the pocket if it's not to heavy.. Starting to slim everything down.

      IMG_20201013_174339.jpg proof of concept works. Flings a 5 1/2 foot willow 'spear' pretty hard, the elastic of the bands is a nice springy action... The rock sling throws egg sized rocks hard, just need practice. The slingshot is surprisingly consistent, I think the long handle really has an affect. Now I just need to sand make a better pouch, add some carvings, maybe a little wood burning, and lots of practice. IMG_20201013_174346.jpg
      Oh and a .22 rifle and shotgun barrel would be nice to add on too.
