I was thinking of getting a new sling, I like the platted bisley type, my question is has anybody had any bad experience with these? Do they squeak? And do they stretch much? Cheers.
where has class gone these days!..why not just bring a microwave into the field to heat up your cuppa soup too..with a solar powered charger....rant over.
long and short...leather all the way, despite XYZ, it's nice, looks good, lasts, and has class.

It's strange but our fore fathers seemed to manage quite well with leather slings in all weathers and climates. I wonder what they did right that we modern shooters are doing wrong?
I have just sold a quality leather sling with the quick release steel clips for use on the British sling eyes found on stalking rifles back then. The sling complete with it leather covered buckle fitted the old BSA and Rigby Mannlicher well as it did the Swinburns Patent sporting Martini before it. The sling needed to be easily detachable for following up wounded beats in thick brush where the sling could get snagged at just the wrong moment.
z-aim pro stalker no slip has a sling that keeps it on your shoulder
Hi Brit it's called saddle soap and neatsfoot oil keeps leather for ever. Neatsfoot oil also stops leather sqeeking. If you want a noneslip rubber and braided nylon then Quake is your answer.
