We get this question often, so we're glad that it was asked for this video series.
Why not install the band sets on SimpleShot slingshots?
After hearing this one we believe that you will agree that it is best that we do not install the band sets on your slingshot frame when we send it to you.
The simple number one reason is that one size does not fit all. Everyone has a slightly different draw length and therefore, there is no one band length that would be suitable for all customers.
Sure, we could install bands at an average band legs, but those with longer draw lengths would be unable to use the bands entirely. Those with shorter draw lengths would be able to tune in the band sets, but that would be defeating the purpose of pre-installing the bands on the slingshot.
Second, we want to make sure that your band sets are fresh when you receive them. To protect them from UV light and other contaminants, all our slingshot band sets will be shipped in a sealed UV protected bag.
This is a critical step in making sure that your band sets are in the best shape possible.
So we do not pre-install your slingshot being set onto your slingshot frame for these two reasons.
One, we can't make them fit you. You need to install your bands after tuning them.
Two, we want your band sets to be as fresh and zippy as possible. So we send them to you in a protected, sealed bag.
