Gaffer makes a nice sling,I'd recommend him, I am up to my eyes in manufacturing for Saddlery retailers, wholesalers and police horse watch groups as well as designing a new type of bridle so I don't have a lot of time to do other work.

This is why I haven't been on for a while!

My work can be seen in link below (scroll down the home page) and no, I don't just make dog collars!

The first one you have listed is the best leather,it's London Tan which matures down to a nice rich Chestnut colour in time, all 3 you've listed are all run through a sewing machine, machine thread will fray long before hand stitching but it's quick and convenient.

The second one and the third one are made out of what we call a spilt in the trade, cheap leathergoods dressed up as expensive are also made of splits.

It's basically the off cuts off the tannery or workshop floor recycled!

Second one has cheap fittings and rivets

Third one has chicago screws which have a tendency to come loose and drop out.

Second and third should be avoided, although cheaper than the first one they are false economy

Go for the first one if you intend to buy one of these off ebay

It's expensive because of the tooling on it, if it was hand stitched it would be twice that price.
