The Scout X - Our most popular slingshot frame styles merged into one revolutionary new design
Mar 01, 2023
We here at Team SimpleShot are so proud to have just released a revolutionary new frame that we're sure will make waves in the slingshot shooting community - The Scout X, a brand-new, ultra-modern design resulting from a decade of slingshot manufacturing experience.
In October of 2012, the sport of slingshot shooting was rocked with the release of our Scout XT slingshot frame. The revolutionary two-in-one ‘Over The Top’ & ‘Through The Forks’ design features wide forks, a sturdy grip, and a pair of quick-change clips for easy band replacement - all in a handy design made from high-quality thermoplastics, available in four woodland colors.
Seven years later, the next market interrupter, The Scout LT, emerged as the new kid on the block. The LT is a rework of the classic Scout XT design but in a more compact size with upgraded FlipClips™ for easy on-the-go band adjustments, available in a wide assortment of colors. The Scout LT quickly became a beginner favorite and was praised for its slim size and frame customization.
Since then, our line of Scout slingshot frames has become an industry favorite. Referred to as the “best beginner slingshots on the market” and “a must-have for every slingshot shooter” in slingshot forums, the Scout slingshots are modern, lightweight, compact, and made from highly-durable plastics.
Today, we've gone and done it again with the creation of The Scout X slingshot!
The Scout X merges classic favorites, market innovations, and the latest technology in high-strength plastics into the next generation of slingshot frame. Combing the sturdy features of the XT and the tight fit of the LT, the X comes with a state-of-the-art integrated-clips band attachment method, and is available in a wide range of color combinations.
Scout X Slingshot Frame Features;
- Large Ergonomic Handle Grip

The Scout X’s simplistic features are geared towards keeping it beginner-friendly while, at the same time, offering high-performance components that advanced shooters and competition professionals alike appreciate. It’s no surprise that The Scout X has already received raving reviews from slingshot enthusiasts worldwide.
What does the future hold for The Scout X? Not only is it taking the spotlight of the long lineage of the Scout slingshot family, but it’ll also be taking center stage this summer at the World Slingshot Association’s International Slingshot Competition.
