Sling angles in this catalog depart from the traditional method of vertical angles measured at the sling hook. It has long been the opinion of sling users that it is easier to measure a sling angle relative to the ground or horizontal. The method is the same whichever angle is used. When the horizontal angle is used you, must use the trigonometric cosine of the vertical angle.
