Really fun. I like how easy it is to switch bands and shooting styles between OTT and TTF. Was able to get on target very quickly and really dial it in to what worked best for me as a new slingshot shooter. At first it seemed a little big but hardly notice it in your hand when your shooting
good shooter , I expected a finer finish for the price , and a starter supply of proper size shot also two sets of bands , that seems a more proper set of goods for the high price !!!
Definitely one of my favorite slings. It holds so nice and comfortable in the hand and switching bands couldn't get any easier. It's very versatile for ott or ttf shooters thanks to the ocularis attachments. 5 stars here, happy shooting all!!
This is such a great shooter. It literally has no downfalls in my opinion and for me, I was able to get on target very quickly. Grab yourself one you won't regret it
Fits very well in my hand
Today was my first chance after winter to try shooting with this Axiom Ocularis outdoors. During the winter I was shooting only from 10 m (33ft) distance and wanted to know how well this shoots, when distance is over 15 m (49ft). And this shoots well. I guess that after some practice even better. Shooting video https://youtu.be/WuVC52_dUi8
This was my very first slingshot. Yes, I was deprived as a child! Anyway, I was able to hit soup cans at 10 meters after 3 shots. While I don't have another slingshot to compare it to, I would say that it is an accurate frame if a total newbie with no previous experience can do that.
The fit and finish was excellent. Comfortable to hold and very light. Fits in my back pocket with no issues. Changing band sets is a breeze and that's a good thing for me as I am (was) experimenting with different anchor points and changing out band sets a ton.
Go getcha one. You'll enjoy it!
Love this new little friend
I love this thing. My new go to sling shot. Perfect size and comfortable to shoot. Still working on getting the bands dialed in but I've fed at least a hundred rounds through it and my accuracy has greatly increased.
I Have ALWAYS Loved The Axiom Design. I have a few in HDPE in both thicknesses and a couple of the cast aluminum ones. While the aluminum models look best, NONE fit and feel better in my hands than the new molded plastic ones like this. GREAT JOB!!!
The Axiom Ocularis has the best fit for my hand and shooting style (pinch grip) of any slingshot I have ever shot or owned.Already my favorite shooter!
I now have 4 simple-shot slingshots: Two generations of Scouts (which both use “Flip Clips” for band attachment to the fork), plus two ocularis-based slingshots (the Ocularis Beanflip and my just received Axiom Ocularis). I like the Ocularis-based slingshots best, both because of the easier (for me) band attachment and for their feel in my hand. I prefer to shoot single (unlooped) tubes (especially 1745 and 2550 tubes), using a sighting approach for aiming. This means I want to shoot through the fork with the tubes going over the outsides of the fork.
As delivered, the Axiom Ocularis is easier to aim than the Beanflip, because the Beanflip has a circular outside edge where the band emerges from the fork toward the shooter. So the tubes can slide around the outsider edges of the forks a little too easily. In contrast, the Axiom Ocularis has little ~1mm groves on the outside edges of the forks which keep the tubes from moving. The problem just mentioned for the Beanflip can be rather easily fixed by taking a small sliver off the outside edges of the forks to leave a flat section about 9/16” long. But still, it’s definitely better for most people not to have to do a home-job modification: Advantage Axiom Ocularis.
Another difference between the Beanflip and Axiom slingshots is that there is a swell/bulge near the bottom of the slingshot handle for the Axiom, but not for the Beanflip. Unfortunately, this bulge is about a quarter inch too low for me (& my only average-size hand), so it doesn’t feel quite right. In contrast, the Beanflip has no bulge, which allows the hand to be shifted easily to the most comfortable position on the handle (whiie still employing a comfortable “pinch grip” with the thumb and forefinger). So the issue is that the handle bulge position cannot be selected when buying a slingshot (unlike shoe size). If a bulge fits you just right, it would be better than no bulge, but if it doesn’t fit just right, having no bulge at all would give a more comfortable grip. This might favor the Beanflip.
A big difference separating the Axiom from all my other simple-shot slingshots, is that there is almost no handslap (aka bandslap). This is with the same bands (single 1745 tubes, 33 inch draw, 7.0 inch unstretched active length, shooting 11 mm marbles). Handslap can be very different for different people and band setups, so some of you may not have this issue. For me though, it’s a deal-breaker so I am excited that the new Axiom Ocularis seems so immune to handslap.
Accuracy is very good for all 4 of these slingshots, about equal to the best I’ve seen.
The Axiom Ocularis wins for not having handslap, and for having the nice band attach ocularis technology that is easy to aim by sighting (aided by the small grooves). And it has unsurpassed accuracy. It would be a bigger winner if it had a version with no swell/buige in the handle, since matching the bulge to hand size isn’t easy.
