I'll give it a try.

As long as my pants are too tight (Top tip from Tool) and i can spread my legs like Gilly, then Rest all my weight (thats too much) on the Bag like Fishface, then in a kneeling position i am pretty steady.
To the point i dont need to be any more steadier, so no sling.

when it comes to standers, its my legs that need supporting, not the upper body so much to stop movement.
I cant see the sling helping there iether?
