Product description

The Scout X, the new modern classic slingshot from SimpleShot

The original Scout XT slingshot was released to the world in 2012 and, since that time, has introduced more folks to the joy of slingshots than any other single slingshot design of the modern era. However, we at SimpleShot can’t stop evolving, and the Scout was ready for its next evolution.

Introducing the Scout X (patent pending), a collaboration between Mark Seljan and SimpleShot. We took years of feedback and spent over 18 months in the development of the Scout X to give you, the dedicated slingshot enthusiast, what you want!

Scout X Features:

  • Removable palm swells like the Scout LT
  • Integrated band attachment clips
  • Recessed fasteners
  • Fiber optic sight references
  • More accommodating of pinch grip hold

The Scout X is reminiscent in all the best ways of the original Scout XT and entirely new with its modern styling and integrated functionality. If you are looking for the one slingshot to rule them all, the Scout X just might be the one!

Great Frame!

Summary - This is just an awesome frame. No complaints, no notes. New clips are fantastic. LOVE it. Me blathering on a bit... Size/Feel: This is a big slingshot. I don't have many, but this one is the biggest by far. It's got at least a 1/2 an inch on the Scout LT, and you feel it in your hand. Everything about this is chonky by comparison. The handle is thicker, the pinch... I have the handle weight in my LT, and this is a heavier slingshot. That said, the reduced size and mass of the clips combined with a big chunky handle with a chunky lanyard loop means it is exceptionally well balanced. I can balance this frame on my finger at the thinnest part of the handle. It feels great in my smaller hands, if you have man sized mitts, even better. Clips: Oh, hell yeah. New clip system is awesome. The little block around the screw keeps the clips from spinning around and they are so easy to change it's not funny. The sights are bright... Function: Might just be me and my body geometry/form, but this is as point and shoot as I could have ever dreamed. It literally shoots right where the green dot is. I hit a 4cm target 6 times in a row today from 15 meters, and that's a new best for me. Shot #7 was me not checking band alignment before I shot because I was freaking out. The point and shoot nature of this beastie has me turgid. It means I know it's bad form not bad aim and vice versa.

Love for all my simpleshot slingshots

I love this slingshot the customization of the scales and clips is extremely impressive, and the comfort man don't even get me started. I can't wait for them to make a pro version of this I'll be waiting. But all around an incredible product. I would recommend it for sure.

My Precious 2.0

Not all who wander are lost ... especially us fortunate owners of the one slingshot to rule them all. What a journey it is, from Ocularis to Scout LT to XT to amazing X. This elegant hybrid is the most comfortably engineered frame I've encountered in my relatively short time shooting. If I aim straight and keep it straight, the result is gold every time ... the Scout X is accuracy to the Xth degree.

Very nice

I wanted to compare a manufactured sling with the ones I’ve been making. The ease of setting up bands on this sling was fantastic and it also shoots well.
