What is the best slingshot for kids?
There are many different types of slingshots on the market, but before you purchase one for your child it is important to know what type they will need.
The number one factor to which slingshot is best for kids is not so much the slingshot as it is the bands and ammo they are using. But there's more.
We want to slingshot to fit the child's hand well, of course. There are many slingshots available at SimpleShot that are very suitable for children. The scout LT is a great slingshot for someone with small hands. A child can hold either scout model and a hammer grip which suits children very well.
But how they hold the slingshot and how the slingshot that's their hand is one thing. We really want to make sure that the bands in the Amos match and that they are suitable for the child.
You do not want to give a kid a slingshot that has way too much attention. Always make sure the bands are a suitable drawing for the child. Also, you must make sure that the slingshot ammo is suitable for the age level and maturity of the child.
Remember, the bands have to match the ammo if you want to get kids started down the path to shooting slingshots.
And, this is important. Make sure that they have success. The only way a child is going to succeed at slingshot shooting is to make sure that they continue to desire to shoot. The best way to make this happen is to make sure you've given the child a slingshot target that they can hit, and that they enjoy hitting.
Finally, make sure child is having fun while they shoot a slingshot. We cannot stress enough the importance of making sure that they have fun with sling shot today. If they do not have fun, they are not going to want to shoot and they will not be successful shooting their slingshot.
So to recap. Make very sure the bands and the slingshot ammo match the age and maturity level of the child. Make very sure that the slingshot bands are not too difficult to draw. Make sure that the child is having fun during slingshot shooting. And provide a target that is enjoyable to hit with the slingshot.
Making sure that the slingshot frame fits the child is the easy part! Now go teach a kid to shoot a slingshot and do the world a favor!
