THE SCOUT™ OWNERS MANUAL

The Scout is an extremely versatile slingshot meant for all grips and capable of shooting virtually every bandset.

This manual will go over setup of your slingshot and knowledge to make sure you safely and correctly use your new Scout.


GET TO KNOW YOUR SCOUT™ SLINGSHOT

The Shooter Side

This is the side of the Scout that will face you as you shoot.

The Target Side

This is the side of the Scout that will face the target as you shoot.

FlipClip X

The FlipClips hold the bandset to the forktips in OTT or TTF configuration.

OTT (Over The Top)

Band orientation where you shoot the ammo over the top of the forks. (FlipClips hold the band to the TOP of the frame.)

TTF (Through The Forks)

Band orientation where you shoot the ammo through the forks. (FlipClips hold the band to the SIDE of the frame.)

The Lanyard

A simple piece of paracord that attaches to the handle of your Scout frame and secures the Scout to your frame-holding hand.

Do not shoot stones or rocks from any slingshot.

Rocks - no matter how round they look – shoot erratically and shooting them may damage your slingshot and bands.

Due to the uncontrollable nature of shooting non-spherical projectiles, shooting a rock from a SimpleShot slingshot voids any / all warranties.


SCOUT™ SLINGSHOT SETUP INSTRUCTIONS

Setting up the frame - Installing the lanyard
It is critical to always have the lanyard securely wrapped around the wrist when shooting.

STEP 1. Thread one end of the lanyard through the hole in the end of the Scout frame

STEP 2. Tie a simple overhand knot with BOTH tag ends of the lanyard.

STEP 3. Pull tightly to secure the knot (adjust the position of the knot to vary size of the lanyard.

STEP 4. Check the lanyard to make sure it is secure and ALWAYS use the lanyard when shooting.


GET TO KNOW FLIPCLIP X™ FOR SCOUT

Make sure you understand how FlipClips work for the best experience!

Every FlipClip has a "tooth."

This upper side of the clip is slightly larger and less round. Only use this side to grip the band.

Every FlipClip pair has a left and right component.

The logos engraved on each clip will show you which is which!

For TTF configuration:

The logos should be on the TOP with the bands around the sides.

For OTT configuration:

The logos should be on the OUTSIDE with the bands over the top.


NEXT, INSTALL YOUR FLIPCLIP X ON YOUR SCOUT SLINGSHOT

First, decide whether you will be installing your bands OTT or TTF.

Don't know which to use? Try both, starting with OTT.

INSTALLING BANDS OTT (over the top)

Step 1.

Place FlipClip with logos facing OUT and "tooth" edge in the frame groove.

Step 2.

Thread the fastener JUST until it catches.

Step 3.

Place the band into the groove of the frame and under the "tooth" of the FlipClip.

Step 4.

Tighten down the fastener. Do NOT over-tighten. The FlipClip is very strong and will hold when just hand tight.

INSTALLING BANDS TTF (through the forks)

Step 1.

Place FlipClip with logos facing UP and "tooth" edge in the frame groove.

Step 2.

Thread the fastener JUST until it catches.

Step 3.

Place the band into the groove of the frame and under the "tooth" of the FlipClip.

Step 4.

Tighten down the fastener. Do NOT over-tighten. The FlipClip is very strong and will hold when just hand tight.

Which Grip should I use with my Scout™?

There's no one right answer to this.

The Scout is designed to accommodate any grip you choose. While most top shooters choose a pinch or fork-supported grip, every grip is fine and you should try each one and decide which you prefer!

The Pinch Grip

The Fork-Supported Grip

The Hammer Grip

Important Scout Instructions

The fasteners must go on the shooter side, NOT the target side!

Check your bands before every use.
