"Simply awesome"

I’ve had this bad boy for a few weeks now. I can’t say enough good things about this frame. It’s infinitely adjustable, it has reference sites, it comes in several awesome colors, and it comes in a cool case.

– Michael P.


"Took it to a level I didn't realize existed"

I recently switched from the tube style bands to these flat bands and have been blown away at the improvements to the consistency of my groups.

"Phenomenal Slingshot"

Your slingshot questions, answered.

You have questions. And we have answers. Here are our some of our most frequently asked questions.
What is your best slingshot?

Well, that is sort of like asking which child do you like best... A few things to consider when choosing a slingshot: How do you hold the slingshot? If you prefer thumb supported models, check out the Scout or Axiom Ocularis. If you shoot with a full pinch grip, the BeanFlip and Torque are great choices. If you shoot hammer grip...look no further than the Hammer slingshot. How big is your hand? If you have massive hands, the Hammer or the Scout XT are a great choice. If you have small hands or just prefer small slinghots, the Axiom Champ, Sparrow, and Axiom Ocularis are good choices.  Otherwise, an average hand will work with all of our slingshots. Do you prefer to shoot OTT (over the top) or TTF (through the forks)?  Many of our slingshots will accommodate both. Budget: All the slingshots we stock are quite affordable but if you are looking to get started on a budget, the Poly lineup of slingshots is a good choice.

How do I choose my first slingshot?

First, don’t overthink it!  Yes, we have lots of slingshots but they really do grow on trees, so if you are unsure if you want to spend a little money on your first slingshot, you can always make your own. If that is not to your liking, we always recommend the Scout LT slingshot. The Scout LT has gotten thousands of folks up and running in this affordable and fun sport. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or just getting started again in the sport, The Scout LT slingshot provides a stable and adaptable shooting platform.  Just check out all the reviews!

How do I cut my own bands?

All you need is a rotary cutter, a self healing cutting mat, a ruler, and bulk band material. The rotary cutter, mat and ruler can be purchased at any craft store.  Check out this video on how we recommend cutting bands: Slingshot Tutorial: Band Cutting

What is the best ammo for my slingshot?

Spherical projectiles are the most preferred and most accurate ammo you can shoot. The best ammo can be steel balls, lead balls, clay ammo or marbles. Shooting a spherical projectile provides the shooter with the most consistent and repeatable accuracy.

Try the Simple Shot Steel ammo and find your sweet spot. We offer 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16", and 1/2" steel. You’ll love experimenting with all these ammo sizes! Or just choose your favorite ammo size and stock up. Remember to get you bandsets that match the ammo size!

Are tubes or flatbands more powerful?

Both can be equally powerful when tuned to the users draw length and projectile. However, flat bands generally retract more quickly and are easier to achieve higher velocities at shorter draw lengths.  Conversely, tubes will generally last longer.

The key here is tuning your bands. Learn this critical skill and you’ll find the exact performance you’re looking for.

What is the difference between ‘OTT’ and ‘TTF’?

OTT or ‘over the top’ refers to a slingshot with the bands attached to the top of the forks.

TTF or ‘through the fork’ refers to bands that are attached to the sides of the fork.

Neither is necessarily better than the other, it really comes down to personal preference.  A few things to keep in mind:  When shooting TTF, the projectile is actually traveling between the forks.  As such, a clean release is necessary or one may encounter fork hits.  If you have  a ‘flip’ style shot, it is wise to only shoot OTT.

How long will my bands last?

We generally say that 300 shots is a good rule of thumb for flatbands.

Some real world examples: If you shoot your bands at an active band length exceeding 5x elongation, you will see a decrease in band life. If you allow your bands to be exposed to UV, ozone, or petrochemicals, they will break down faster. Pure latex breaks down faster than a latex formula like our SimpleShot Black. If you choose to shoot stones or irregular shaped projectiles, you may (it's almost certain, honestly) nick or cut your bands while shooting, thus decreasing lifespan.

Long and short….your bands will wear out whether you use them or not.  Latex contains natural proteins that are degrading constantly. In order to keep your bands fresh and last as long as possible, store them away from UV light, chemicals, and ozone when not in use.  If you keep your bands in a cool dark place when not in use, they will serve you much longer than leaving them in your car on a hot day or next to your electronics. In order to keep shooting, you will need to replace your bands regularly.

Our shipping team generally ships orders within ONE business day! They are FAST!

If it is taking more than a business day for your order to ship, it could be due to one of the following:
