Appreciate that. Finally got something up I play with. Been working out how to throw them off and on the past few years, experimenting with the techniques as I find them. Gonna have to give this one a try. Nice idea with the fishing weights. We lasso up 1" od nuts to paracord on ours, haven't had any trouble out of them. Not much room to use them, but they are handy where you can.
You ever mess around with the Native way of throwing a shorter 9 line one at birds?
I have I made one with 7 smaller weights and smaller line it worked well I used to have one that I made to be worn as a belt as self defense over seas is still in Turkey.
I've used mine as a belt before, and a gun sling once. I usually carry mine "cocked" in my hang, with the "Bolas" in between my fingers against the palm, with the strings dangling knot down. That way it kind of snaps into play. Can't wait to see how your grip plays in.
Non-firearm weapon I've seen that actually looks interesting - and inexpensive.
And you can use them like a primitive taser to lock somebody down (don't tell anybody).
Haven't messed with these since I was a kid.. Gonna make one up and go out and practice it.. Thanks guys..
