Hawaiian sling

The black stuff has filler in it, usually carbon black. Makes it last longer but reduces its stretchness. For best power, amber is better.

More important than color is getting the tubing length right. For a free shaft Hawiian sling, maximum power is really important. Bulid you sling so that you can hold it without shaking for 30 seconds. That works for me.
