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.

That’s what I thought the first time and every time I see it I had to look it up on google 1966 I saw one and I wanted it ( the toy ) so bad. I didn’t get the Robots but I got the Roller and I love it Hey I was only 7 years old in 1966
Wow this frame is just a work of art! Wrap and tuck is waaay easier than I thought! I love flip clips but I see the light now with how simple this really is to do. Pocketable comfortable affordable - what more could you want!?! My girls live the color options we have two!
Did not think it would be so good untill I hold it in my hand. Thanks Mark, thanks Nathan.
I am an intermediate plinker. I own about 10 slingshots and have an approximate idea of to operate them. They are a constant source of education and humility...I manage. Recently got this Seljan Slant Roller. I think he is a very clever guy. When one ponders the relative value of small changes consider the theater of awareness with the teenest pebble in your shoe..or a tiny shard of lettuce between your teeth.. The SR (Slant Roller) fits comfortably controllable even in my XL mitts. Bands wrapped on easily enough albeit not with the eyes closed greased fluidity of Nathan. I noticed immediately what I perceived to be a humungous increase in velocity of the clays I was using. So much so that...my take..they passed the fork uprights soooo fast that the facing air pressure compressed the pellets to the point of vaporization...over and over again. Took a minute before I realized that I have nearly mastered the art of the fork hit...effortless on my part. The SR, in order to perform as a slingshot, compels the user to demonstrate a higher degree competence that I had in my bag. It is teaching me. YMMV Happy Trails (..and trials..)
I like the eye/hand lessons I get from slingshot(-ing?). It's quiet like archery, less costly..if you let it and there is, in principal, much overlap. I've got more than two (!) of each so depending on weather they both get me outside. The Slant Roller distinguishes itself from most other frames I have by the closeness of the forks to the holding hand. That somehow makes some demands, for me, on accuracy of relationship between anchor point position relative to where the ammo passes between the forks...or not. I thought I had outgrown fork hits..puffs of clay appeared from nowhere. Maybe they were going so fast as they passed the forks that they simply couldn't hold together..nah. Within 20 minutes the 5 cortical cells I have (multitasking prevails) left determined I had to make a few adjustments with my perception radar and better align that with reality. Change is not a 4 letter word, it can be good.. For $30 it's cheaper than a private lesson...
Fits perfect in every hand!
Wrapping and tuckin is where it’s at!!! Love this little beaut definitely going to grab the pro next!!!
