The NEW Slant Roller, designed by Mark Seljan, made by SimpleShot!
The Slant has been a legendary design since Mark first introduced it to the world many years ago. With its easily recognizable Seljan styling and ultra compact size, you won’t find a better EDC slingshot for heavy bands…or light bands if that is your jam.
Designed from the beginning to be held deeply in the hand for maximum leverage the Slant is not only compact, but full size where it counts. The compound tapers emanating from the center of mass of this slingshot provide the user a balanced and intuitive grip that fits in a pocket but fills the hand. The fork tips provide a precise aiming reference without the bulk of a traditional sight.
This is one compact slingshot, packing a hefty size in a small footprint.
The Slant Press Pro slingshot is injection molded by the same team of slingshot enthusiasts who produce our latex in China. The Slant Roller includes tie-in material for your first few band attachments, since this is a wrap and tuck only frame.
Mark Seljan designed slingshots are available exclusively at SimpleShot.
Here's the inspiration behind Mark Sejlan's design of the Slant Slingshot;
"My design school was built on the heritage of the Bauhaus art movement and art, theory, and practice, were hand-in-hand. As much as I like to look into the future I like to go back to the bench. I had the Bugsy design in cast aluminum and was eager to use the technology to create a fine geometrical shape with exciting tapers. At first, it was like an illustration of slingshot anatomy in a pure form. Each of the functions was symbolized with a planar surface.
It took plenty of time and iterations to create the proportions. It was completed in cast aluminum when I recognized it has to be thicker by one millimeter. So I started over, and created the first Slant in the line."
Available in the five NEW colors we know you're going to love; Bluesteel, Flagstone, Sea Glass, Fig, and Black.

I bought this slant because of its size and shape. Just one of the 8 simpleshot slingshots i own. The day it arrived i could wait to shoot. This slingshot is awesome. Right off the bat I was hitting my targets at 30 feet. It’s the right weights and size. I love it and would recommend to everyone. Happy shooting!
Don't sleep on the Slant Roller!
This is my second frame from SimpleShot, scooped during a recent sale. I have quite a bit to say about it. Comfort: I have large hands with long fingers and this frame really feels great considering how small it is. It’s easy to get a good grip on it, high up on the forks and it feels rock solid stable from draw through the release. Performance: The frame’s geometry / fork width, combined with my face anchor, results in very intuitive placement of shots above the fork tip at distances of 15m-20m. Compared to other frames, I have had more success hitting very small spinners (2cm) with the Slant Roller at these distances. Overall: Big kudos to Mark Seljan on this frame’s design. It’s both industrial and elegant in appearance, has great ergonomics and (in my experience) shoots like a dream. Honestly I think it may be my favorite frame to shoot, even when compared to my two other frames that are valued at twice or three times as much compared to what I paid for the SR ($22.50+tax). Will almost certainly be buying a Slant Press Pro when budget allows :)
Great take anywhere sling shot. Fits in pocket nicely. Shoots 3/8 steel like a champ.
Truly amazing, compacted, very natural thumb brace shape, I can't say enough on how comfortable and snug the fit is,the more I use it the more I can't put it down
Cans last minutes when I'm shooting with a Slant Roller!!!
A fun and more compact frame
