The exquisite Cleaver PRO Slingshot, designed by Mark Seljan, a standout piece in our Pro Series lineup

Born from a thought experiment and challenge to create the ultimate user interaction with the slingshot frame, Mark Seljan designed the first iterations of the Cleaver in 2019. Mark’s intent with this design was to provide the user tactile feedback at multiple points in the grip, so as to maximize the repeatability and consistency of the hold while simultaneously balancing the many force vectors involved the act of shooting.

To say the Cleaver ‘locks in’ to your hand is not quite enough. Unlike other slingshots that tout their form as a means to provide consistent grip, the Cleaver takes it a few steps further with innovative features to help you find your winning grip on the slingshot.

The Cleaver is part of the Seljan Series but is also a PRO Series slingshot, meaning it's machined from solid aluminum.

Cleaver Key Features:

  • Pro Series Excellence: Crafted from all aluminum, offering a sleek and durable design for advanced slingshot enthusiasts.
  • Dedicated Through-the-Forks (TTF) Design: Engineered for precision shooting with a TTF orientation, emphasizing accuracy and control.
  • Ergonomic for a Variety of Hand Sizes: While ideally suited for average to slightly larger hands, its design ensures comfort and stability for a wide range of users.
  • Adjustable Lanyard System: Features multiple holes for lanyard adjustment, allowing for a customizable grip that enhances stability and repeatability.

Why Choose the Cleaver?

  • Not only is the Cleaver visually striking, but it also provides a high-performance experience for those dedicated to the art of slingshot shooting.
  • With its focus on TTF shooting and a fiber optic sighting reference, the Cleaver is built for enthusiasts who prioritize accuracy and consistency.
  • Designed for a specific holding technique, it offers an immersive and secure shooting posture, enhanced by the optional pinky hole for an even firmer grip.
  • Ideal for the slingshot aficionado looking to refine their skills with a tool that marries innovative design with precision mechanics.

This slingshot fits your hand like a glove and accepts multiple lanyard installations to make the fit one of the most secure you'll ever experience.

Mark Seljan designed slingshots are available exclusively at SimpleShot. The Cleaver Pro is made by our friend Luca, a fellow slingshot enthusiast and master of CNC in Vietnam.

Cleaver rocks

The Cleaver is a game changer. It invites the hand to hold it a certain way, consistently. The sight is bright, and the fiber optic is well protected. I like the 4 inch fork, and shoot with a thumb supported grip.

Love it. It took me about a week to get acquainted with it. But now I’m most accurate with this frame. And I have all the simple shot frames.

The disappointment

I bought 2 the black and the gunmetal. I have been very disappointed in the performance of these slingshots. I had fork hits left and right my black one looks like it was ran over with a train the other has been banded up I'm afraid to shoot it.i tried everything and chatted back and forth with simple shot for there advice. I guess I will sell the black cleaver to a metal exchange and just hang my other one in the gun vault. Very disappointed with the cleaver.

Fit Into My Hand, Like A Glove

Cleaver Pro by Mark Selan through Simple Shot (Gunmetal) , that's what I'm shooting right while I'm typing this review... Flat band; 2.0mm (tapered 12-24mm), Ammo; 3/8mm (9,5mm) & 5/16 (8mm) steel. I'm going to invest into a second one, same color. I dirt napped several raccoons, pigions (while at work), rats, skunks, ground squirrels with this 30 yards from select targets. I'm also considering to purchase the Scout X Pro also.

Simple is Better

My first Simple Shot sling shot was the Scout X and it is absolutely amazing. I liked it so much that I decided to upgrade into the Pro Series. After much debate I decided on the Cleaver Pro. Based on its unique design I felt that the Cleaver Pro would allow for a much more consistent hand grip. While this is true I have found that I am still much more accurate with my Scout X. If I was to do it again I would purchase the Scout X Pro instead of the Cleaver Pro. They are both great products, but simple is better in my opinion.
