|Stampede ECS in a standard 2 point sling|
The standard 2 point sling is a versatile and effective solution but it gets in the way; the triglide mechanism it uses can be fussy and difficult to use under pressure. Blastersmiths UK has always prided itself on products that can be used in the heat of a firefight without a fuss and so our standard 2 point wasn't good enough. In order to answer the problem we developed the Quick Release 2 point sling.

The strap itself is fully adjustable in length, it fits pretty much everyone we've thrown it at. It's an unusual design that does take some time to get used to but the ability to climb trees with a blaster on your back isn't a problem that's been solved in the Nerf community yet and so it's worth taking the time over.
At the end of the day, this design combines the best of the analogue and the digital. You have the strengths of analogue variability combined with the speed and convenience of digital. While the strap can be in many lengths for dozens of different configurations, the ready and stowed states will be right just for you. We've found that no two people are able to share slings without resetting them in some way or another.
Our current variant is 25mm wide and will likely remain as such. We have a price listed for a full width 50mm variant which will be less subject to twisting but the special buckles we use in these slings are prohibitively expensive and so it will be a special order item at £10 including VAT.
There will be fitting and demonstration videos to come - we're currently a little under manned in the office.
These slings will be available to early birds from 27th July by email order only. When our new website goes live in August sometime, they'll be there are ready for you to order until your heart's content.
Thanks to Tim for modelling this one for us - we will get you to climb a tree in it sometime and show these good folks how awesome these things are. :)
