How do you carry your crossbow?
I usually had
one of those very basic Nylon slings, functional
but left a lot to be deserved on the comfort
side. During a recent trip at BassPro I saw a
RedHead SuperSling padded sling and decided it
was time for an upgrade.
As you probably
know RedHead is BassPro’s own brand. In this
case the sling it is actually made by Outdoor
Connection Inc. and re-branded for RedHead.
The sling is
made of 1” wide heavy gauge nylon webbing (1000
denier) it features two Talon quick release
swivels and a padded section composed of four
layers. The padding is made by heavy premium
leather, two layers of closed cell neoprene
rubber and a non slip layer made of suede
leather. There is also a nylon thumb loop to
help you balance the load on the shoulder.
length can be adjusted from approx 28” to 40”
and that should accommodate most of the
crossbows on the market as well as body sizes,
an added plus is that it can be adjusted with
switched to this new sling I was not aware what
I was missing, I have to admit. It is really
comfortable on the shoulder and the suede
leather helps keeping the load firm and stable.
I also appreciated the swivels, though they may
seem a secondary detail the very precisely
dimensioned Talon Swivels lock the sling in
place without any shaking (no shake=no noise!).
The sling is
available from RedHead in Black and in tree
different camo patterns: Advantage Timber, Mossy
Oak Break-Up and Mossy Oak Shadow Grass. At time
of writing the Redhead SuperSling retails for
about $22.99 plus taxes.
