Scout XT review
Excellent.........Accurate ...hard hitting.........use as a gift for friends.
My wife and I both have one now and we are well satisfied with them. I have no desire to buy a different slingshot.
Instructions could be clearer
The instructions for mounting the bands come printed on a card. In the photos, all 3 parts are black, so I can't see what's going on at all. So I watch the video from the QR code, and things are described but the parts are not shown from multiple angles. In fact it starts out by explaining which side of the frame faces the shooter by waving hands around a black frame on a white background instead of just rotating it and showing you the actual difference The clips clearly only fit one way and they keep insisting you should look at the logo, when I think it would be more intuitive to show that the two shoulders are different and the clip should sit flat against the frame. The clips themselves must be switched from one end of the fork to the other if you want to switch between through-the-fork and over-the-top. Surely they could be redesigned to simply rotate 90 degrees? If this is indeed for beginners and all about learning your shooting style, I think the customer would benefit. The kit comes with two bands which is nice. They mention tuning the bands is part of the fun and recommend you cut an inch off to start. Well, first, maybe include a bit more info on what "tuning" really means, and then maybe don't ship bands longer than the length you recommend. Lastly, I bought the orange one and I don't like the way it looks assembled. The plastic frame is excellent, but the clips seem the be painted a shiny black, with a white logo. For $40, I would have expected some fun anodizing or powder coating colors and maybe laser engraving. But, it's right there in the photos, so that's my fault. Lastly - in my limited experience with slingshots - I'm not sure I'm a big fan of flat bands. Coming from tubular bands, it seems flat bands take even longer to reload; they may be wrapped around wrong or twisted from the last shot.
The Scout AT is a gem.
Fit and finish is top notch. This slingshot is accurate. Not the fastest slingshot to load. Has a good heft to it.
This was my first serious slingshot. I love it, I been going through a lot of clay balls. Simple shot has made a slingshot addict out of me.
