Slinging Slingmoore Style: Episode 2 The Back Toss
To start slinging I like do what I call the back toss. I throw the pocket backward with the stays passing over my head. It's an easy way to release from start position and it starts the first swing off with a small initial velocity from the toss. You have to tighten the stays before you back toss or your projectile will fall out.
