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.

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.

What is not to like!

I’m so proud to be one of many people that has purchased this particular shouting platform. This thing is a biss it’s not other way to described. all my previous slingshots I had are (OTT) the CEAVER PRO. It is my first and only (TTF) and I don’t have any problems hitting my target at 10 miter distance. Using the integrated fiber optic sigh I am very very happy and lucky to own one of the best slingshots on the world. In my opinion of course.

Very disappointed

I already have several frames and I wanted just two more to complete my collection - the Cleaver and the Stylus Keeper Pro. I had a job convincing my wife as I'm not made of money but as it was my birthday recently she reluctantly gave me the green light and I decided on the Cleaver. It was considerably more than I've ever paid for a frame (plus the £30 for shipping) but the video and reviews swung me towards the Cleaver. Well, it arrived in good time and I couldn't wait to try it out. Credit to Simpleshot, the packaging was excellent and the frame truly is a work of art. Well built, I was hoping this would eclipse all my other frames. I can't tell you how disappointed I was. I have a large hand. Not enormous just large and the corner at the base of the handle digs in to my palm to the point that it's almost painful. For a smaller hand I imagine this would be perfect but for me, it's practically unusable. I would send it back but having spent £30 getting it here, it would cost me the same to send it back plus another £30 to ship me the Stylus Keeper Pro that I should have gone for in the first place so not practical. I'm sorry SS but this is a failure as far as I am concerned. I could try filing the corner down but that would ruin a beautiful frame so I'll probably give it away or swap it. I spent a long time deciding but I clearly got it wrong. I will now save up for the Stylus but I'm truly very disappointed with the Cleaver. Sorry guys. You provide a fantastic service at SS and I hate to post a negative review but it is what it is.

Like the many options for shooting leverage. It will be my most used slingshot.
