    Finger Sling Material

    Hi, I'm trying to source the cord that is used to make Quick style finger slings and ones such as this. If somebody could point me in the right direction as to where I could find this material it would be much appreciated.

    I'm also taking that the rubber tubing is that like used for fish tanks or fuel tubes in rc models.

    A ship's chandler near me sells all sorts of cord.I bought mine for d-loops but some might be suitable for slings, they do all sorts of sizes.

    I use tent guy line for mine and use fuel line for remote controlled cars. I use the double design now as they don't slip off the fingers, in fact they tighten up on the fingers!

    I made mine from Para cord & some heat shrink tubing from Maplins....

    Took a couple of attempts to get the length right, but it has worked fantastically ever since!!!

    Pass the finger sling through one of the loops, then through the other! The length of cord is longer on this design though.
