Tech Specs

The Scout X, the new modern classic slingshot that redefines versatility and ease of use for both beginners and experts

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, a collaboration between Mark Seljan and SimpleShot. We took years of feedback and spent over 18 months developing the Scout X to give you, the dedicated slingshot enthusiast, what you want!

Key Features:

  • Next-Generation Design: Building on the legacy of the original Scout, the Scout X maintains familiar dimensions with a stout grip and wide forks.
  • Versatile Grip Options: Designed for full pinch, thumb brace, or hammer grip, making it suitable for shooters with varying hand sizes.
  • Integrated Band Attachment: Features integrated clips for effortless band changes, supporting both through-the-fork and over-the-top orientations.
  • Precision Sighting: Equipped with built-in fiber optic sighting references for accurate shooting, regardless of your preferred band setup.
  • Enhanced Customization: Comes with removable scales and an optional handle weight to personalize your shooting experience.

Why Choose the Scout X?

  • Whether you have the smallest or largest hands, the Scout X's adaptable design ensures a comfortable and effective grip for all shooters.
  • The integrated clips and precision sighting make band changes and accuracy improvements more accessible than ever.
  • With removable scales and optional weights, the Scout X can be tailored to fit your personal shooting style and preferences.
  • Ideal for those new to the sport or looking to upgrade, the Scout X is the perfect blend of tradition and innovation, offering something for everyone.

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!

I am new to the whole slingshot game. Had a wrist rocket when I was a kid, but never took it serious. I first purchased the Axiom Ocularis (which is an amazing slingshot) but learning on it was more difficult than what I thought. So I purchased the Scout X. I am so happy I did. It has helped me hone my skills so much. Once I learned how to aim, band alignment, anchor point, this slingshot is ACCURATE. Once you figure it all out, all you have to do is put the green dot on what you want to hit. I’m hitting bottle caps at 30ft with clay ammo. I am beyond impressed with this slingshot and so happy I bought it. It’s helped me so much that it has helped me learn to shoot my axiom. Tack drivers… love these things and beyond happy with all Simpleshot products.

Great first slingshot

A great slingshot that's very beginner friendly for a great price value. In 3 days of shooting I'm shooting better than I could have imagine. The Scout X is a great slingshot for a first time shooter even if you're a grandpa who still has a little bit of a kid still left in him.
