World’s First Rubber Sling on Jun28 11

by 3xL | Print the article |

Rubber SlingJens Vogt, the owner of Demask Dortmund / SeriousToys STS, has created World’s first rubber Sling.

Jens explains “Until now high quality Slings were always made of leather. On the one hand I don’t like leather as much as I adore rubber, but on the other hand leather is not as suitable for building slings as rubber can be. Rubber is much easier to clean and can be way stronger if it contains the right reinforcement. I had to create something new!”

Result is the SeriousToys STS Sling, a comfortable Sling in two sizes build for eternity. The shape of the sling is anatomically correct and all edges are nicely rounded. The long lasting rubber contains two strong layers of kevlar. It takes several tons to tear the Sling apart
and a dynamic load of 400kg is guaranteed. Also new is the mounting: Two stainless steel brackets and screws clamping each of the five corners.

    If Demask’s Sling is the first rubber slign, you’ll have to explain me what is this one here:

    out of Sylvain Coeur Jolly’s website:

    And I can testimony it’s rubber, I’ve touched it myself (I own a few items from this guy).

    Nice find, Ellendyl! Looks like I was a little too fast calling it the world’s first sling.

    But since Sylvain Coeur Jolly has stopped rubber creation last october (for at least one year, maybe more), Demask’s sling is really welcome for anyone who want such a toy :-)

    First rubber sling I saw was almost twenty~five years ago. It was cut from an earth mover inner tube. I’ve seen others for sale here and there since.
