FlipClip X™ for Torque™

The Torque now comes with FlipClips for attaching virtually ANY bandset you'd like.

Switch Tubes in seconds

Originally a dedicated tube shooter, the Torque is still king of the hill for easy tube changes. Just stretch and pop the tube through the slot.

OTT (Over The Top)

The Torque is a dedicated OTT (Over The Top) shooter. The wide fork-tips accommodate large band-sets.

The Lanyard

A simple piece of paracord that attaches to the handle of your Torque frame and secures the slingshot to your frame-holding hand.

Do not shoot stones or rocks from any slingshot.

Rocks - no matter how round they look – shoot erratically and shooting them may damage your slingshot and bands.

Due to the uncontrollable nature of shooting non-spherical projectiles, shooting a rock from a SimpleShot slingshot voids any / all warranties.


Step one: Install the Lanyard

It is critical to always have the lanyard securely wrapped around the wrist when shooting. Serious injury can result from improper use, so make sure you ALWAYS install and use the lanyard when shooting your slingshot!

STEP 1. Thread one end of the lanyard through the hole in the end of the Torque frame

STEP 2. Tie a simple overhand knot with BOTH tag ends of the lanyard.

STEP 3. Pull tightly to secure the knot (adjust the position of the knot to vary size of the lanyard.

STEP 4. Check the lanyard to make sure it is secure. 

ALWAYS wear the lanyard securely when shooting! The lanyard should firmly but not tight. It should be secure enough to prevent the frame from ever slipping from your hand.

Step 4.

Never pull the tube back with the tube around either side of the fork-tip.
