Chamorro Slings - Acho' Atupat

From the left: The first sling has a stone weighing 10oz. The second sling has a stone weighing 6oz and the last sling has a stone weighing 5oz.

For reference the slingstone pictured at the bottom weighs 2.3oz which is a typical weight of stones made of stone, clay or lead used around the world during ancient times.


All slings are braided using 5 strands of your garden variety jute. Jute is made of vegetable fiber and is one of the types of fibers I use for making these Chamorro slings.
