One of the things that slingmoore slings do best is loading fast. When I was still experimenting with woven slings and different stay/trigger designs it used to take me half a minute to get the sling loop on my finger and load the ball, and balance the blah blah blah. But these days I use the fast-load. I slap the rock into the pocket, thread my fingers and run them down to the stays to the handle and trigger. You can sling a whole lot more per unit time if you can load fast. So it boils down to...(you'll just have to forgive me for this one)...The only way to get better at slinging is to sling... moore. Load fast and sling away.
