The BeanFlip is the new king of thin and light.
Our lightest, thinnest slingshot frame yet.
Combine that with the fastest band change in the world, its asymmetric design and "bean" pinky hole and you see why it has been the most requested slingshot over the past few years.
Well, now it's here: The BeanFlip Ocularis from SimpleShot.
Capable of shooting OTT, TTF, and everywhere in-between, the BeanFlip Ocularis is now available as a thermoplastic molded frame in our three most popular colors: Black, Green, and Orange. Weighing in at just 3.2 ounces (91 grams), and a mere half inch (12.5mm) thick, the BeanFlip slingshot is the thinnest and lightest frame in our lineup. The frame is asymmetrical, yet completely ambidextrous, so you can shoot it any way you like.
Is it thinner than the Torque? Yes.
Is it thinner than the Axiom Ocularis? Yes again.
In fact, the Ocularis plug is the thickest part of this slingshot. If you don't want a slingshot so slim it will fit anywhere, then you do NOT want the BeanFlip. It's our most pocketable Ocularis ever.
Molded in super-tough thermoplastics to SimpleShot quality standards at the same factory in China that makes our slingshot latex for a lifetime of use. Assembled in our North Carolina warehouse with (2) 7/16" steel bandsets to shoot with authority and Ocularis plugs for simple band changes (OTT, TTF, and anywhere in-between)!
Hold it how you want to!
The BeanFlip Ocularis is 100% ambidextrous
There is NO WRONG WAY to hold it. It was designed to be held with the larger fork on facing down, but if it fits you better "upside down," go for it! There's no right or wrong way. Just make sure you determine YOUR target/shooter side and make sure the plugs are SHOOTER side for flats and TARGET side for looped tubes.
- bean flip
I bought two of these for my grandsons. They are very good. Light and easy to shoot. A get the job done slingshot.
My first ocularis style slingshot. I like it so far, picking an aiming point is a little tougher with the round edge but I'm catching on. The hole for the pinky is a nice touch and I use it. Not sure if the sparrow isn't still my favorite, seems it's a little faster on target then the bean flip but I have shot the sparrow more.
Just Do It
Like many of you, I did a lot of slingshot shooting as a youngster and into my teens. Between then and now I have had all sorts of very expensive hobbies. That all got old and I thought, why not go back to my roots...Decided to pick a slingshot back up after running into Fowler's channel. Did some research and ordered from Simpleshot. While waiting the short time on my order to show up, I got impatient and dug up my old Daisy's and went to the local shop and got some round run of the mill bands to shoot with. While shooting I got really disappointed and thought, why did I even mess with this... then my Beanflip showed up so I watched the videos on setup and got to flinging some steel balls right away. TOTALLY different than those cheap things we used as kids. Wow, what a nice hand fit and so satisfying to shoot. Also had some interaction with the company via email. Super professional, quick and helpful. Nice job guys and gals! Already placed another order for more styles of bands and a Sparrow! I never post reviews for anything either. Felt like I had to. Where else can you have so much fun for less than a tank of gas?
Ignore my other review. I love it.
Fells great in the hand and the smooth texture feels very nice. Love the thumb hole and pinch grip feel.
Bottom of slingshot has a little chip out of the package.
Just received my slinghsot a few minutes ago and when I unboxed it I noticed there was some black markings on the forks where the plugs go. Also on the handle there was a small chip out of the bottom. It's just cosmetic I'm sure and it feels good in the hand.
We are sorry about the "chip". It is actually from the molding process and there is no way to avoid it as we have tried. It will not make any difference in the hold or feel.
Fun to shoot and very accurate. After a few shots I was hitting my target consistently. I’d recommend that this be the first slingshot purchased and once you have mastered it, then move up to the more expensive models. It is a pleasure to shoot.
