Nice sources FastForty! Thanks.
I forgot to mention that there are numerous lengths of slings as well. One of the old Israeli pictures I saw showed a sling that was adjusted by wrapping the cords from short to long. Another picture showed the sling carried in the belt of the robe, with a large rock in the split pouch that was tied in, so that it could be used as a corded club.
I have not read up on this sort of thing for perhaps 35 years, until I realized that my daughter was not learning to throw. So we did a home-school study of throwing, weapons, etc. She loves to throw now.
