    I got a new to me exofficio fishing vest from eBay today and converted the Tyvek packaging to a throw bag.

    I reinforced the seams and point with Tyvek tape, after cutting was done.

    I made a butyl rubber-band to tie of the throw-bag, and keep my rope in it.

    I really like the spear tip end. Practiced today and it arced beautifully!

    Weighs 0.2 oz., which could easily be reduced by reducing radius.

    Why have I not used that super simple string method to produce accurate curves? omg mind blown!

     

    Nice use of materials! What kind of tyvek tape are you using?

    The problem with the string method is that you have to work hard to keep the pen vertical and for larger diameters the string can stretch. I’ve found using a strip of card or even better a strip of plastic packaging with a map pin at one end and a hole for the pen tip at the other is a more reliable method. Plus you can mark out your holes for a variety of sizes.

    The trick is to not forget where you carefully stored it for next time!

    I’m so going to make one of those. I’ve been tying straight to a rock or stick and it doesn’t exactly…work out well most of the time 🙄

    Tyvek tape from Lowes.

    I made a 5.5, 7, and 9 inch radius bag, I am pretty sure the 9 is too big.

    Tossed around in the yard today, and found that if small pebbles are in cone first that it arcs a bit better.

    I will try them out this weekend in Clifty Wilderness, and put radius that works best.

    I’ve had this throw bag for about a year now, still going strong. Sewn through and taped with DCF tape. 3.5″x4.5″ 0.15 oz. Doubles as a stuff sack for my NitecoreNU25 when not in use.

    Also made one for my Chainsen spikes, sewn through and DCF tape. Several years old. 6″x7.5″ 0.45 oz
