    Hello all.

    What leather is best for slingshot pouches? I have some seal leather, is it good? Or maybe there is better material than leather?

    I like goat the best, very strong but supple. Many sport bike gloves have goat on the palm because it's flexable but can withstand asphalt abrasion quite well.

    I have bought goat leather some time ago, it was very strechy and broke very fast. It might have been a knock off though.
    Kangaroo leather although half the thickness had at least twice the tensile strength.
