Great slingshot

The build quality is exceptional. It’s portable and since I have the pro version, this lives in my car with other essentials, just in case. Simple Shot is such a good company and its educational options are exceptional. Highly recommended.

Handle Weight

I have ultra light frames and heavy steel frames. I’m steadier with a heavier frame and have less recoil that can throw a shot off. I have 40, 50, and 60 mm targets in my catchbox and note a slight increase in accuracy with the handle weight.

Scout X Handle Weight

Weight rattles within handle. Extremely annoying. Had to add additional material to quiet. Maybe something like rubber washers should be added to the kit.



Hello Michael, I am so sorry you did not like the Handle Weight. We do recommend using a cutoff of latex from the bandset to help stop any rattle that occurs. A couple Rubber Washers is a great idea. Thank you for letting us know.

heft "correction"

The additional weight added to the frame corrects a heft issue (strictly personal) that has been the only problem I had with the Scout X. I found the Scout X to be too light for my liking. With the new added weight, my Scout X is my go-to frame now.

Definitely Worth Getting

Picked this up with a Scout X, tried shooting both, definitely can feel the difference when shooting, and recommend for added stability under tension. Another reviewer mentioned rattling in the handle, but I don't get any rattle on mine. Only wish it was even heavier, maybe coated lead. Assuming 7.85g/cm³ for steel, and the handle weight being 25.5g, this would be about 3.25 cm³ of steel. Lead is 11.34g/cm³ and would be 36.86g, nearly 1.5x heavier.(24 karat gold would be almost 2.5x heavier, but costs nearly $4000 in gold unfortunately). If you produce a lead version of this weight I'd definitely pick it up!
