Jellybean Black

JellyBean™ Ocularis

(36 reviews) Write a Review

This frame was inspired by a small wire frame slingshot and brought to life by slingshot community member and all around excellent dude, Mike Meuli aka. BeanFlip.  When we saw this design we thought it looked like a good shooter...when we shot it, we knew without doubt!   It sits low in the hand with a positive pinky finger lock and can be fitted with both tubes and flatbands.  The organic ergonomics of this design combined with the ever adaptable Ocularis™ band attachment system makes the Jelly Bean a very compact, pocket sized adult slingshot that is big on performance.

From Mike/BeanFlip- "The design was conceived by a "Cronie" and executed by another member of SSF. From that point I modified the shape, offset the handle, and cut from HDPE. Another "Cronie" of mine gave me a hand with the Ocularis™ modification."  SimpleShot is proud to offer this community sourced slingshot always, designed and made in the USA!

This slingshot is made from a specialty HDPE material- yellow core with black front and back fused to the core.

The slingshot comes with .030" thick x 3/4" wide latex flatbands and two Ocularis™ band attachment plugs.


Overall Height: 4.5"

Overall width(outside forks): 3.25"

Fork Gap: 1.25"

Thickness: .5"

    Jelly Bean

    I've owned a couple 3 of the yellow jacket Beans - unique and delightful little shooters. This latest all black version looks even better and adds to the enjoyment. Other solid candy colors might be fun as well ... red for example.

    My new fav slingshot

    Posted by Paul on Apr 14th 2019

    I own 3 simple shot slingshots. Jelly bean. Dead ringer. And a 1st gen scout. I love this one. Jellybean with the Ocularis makes for a versatile. Pocketable slingshot I can and do take everywhere. Keep bands in my edc back. For bbs 5/16 and 3/8. I’m getting better with this one. Than my scout. Is definitely a recommendation. When the yellow jacket version is available I’m sure to buy one

    Jelly Bean

    I've always believed that a .380 in your pocket is better than a .45 on your safe. The Jelly Bean is like the .380, easy to carry...always in my pocket. At first I thought it was ok, now it's my go to slingshot and I shoot it more than my Scout. In my right back pocket comfortably at all times.

    JellyBean ( Y J )

    Posted by Donnie Shoulders on Oct 11th 2018

    Gotta be honest, this was a tough 1 for me. I bought my 1st JB a few weeks ago. Get it set up , go outside to shoot and my 1st shot was a ( you guessed it), a fork hit. Lol And every shot from there on out was a fork hit. I'll say 1 thing, this ss is durable as heck. I don't know exactly how many fork hits I had, but it was alot. I tried different band setups, I shot different sized ammo, 1/4" 5/16" 3/8" ss ammo & glass marbles. Everything I tried was a fork hit. I have 6 other Simple-Shot SS's and although I still had a fork hit every once in a while, it was nothing like the JB with forkstrikes every shot. I was so discussed. I think the problem was in my release but everything I tried didn't work. So I finally give it away. Not wanting to let this ss beat me, I got another 1. Lol. Get this 1 setup, go outside to shoot and not 1 fork hit. For the life of me I have no idea why I had all that trouble with the 1st 1. This 1 shoots great!!!! It's now my pocket ss. I would recommend this shooter to everyone!!!!

    This thing is awesome! Small and compact. The only thing I don’t like about it, I can’t shoot it gangster style. I keep getting fork strikes.

    Jelly bean yellow jacket

    Posted by Brian on Jul 17th 2018

    On the 2nd day of shooting a real yellow jacket came to look very closely at her. He loved my Jelly bean !!!
    Beyond that ento-attraction this has been the perfect slingshot for one getting back into the hobby. It is comfortable yet flat, light, and easily pocketable. Above all else, the oculus system makes this slingshot superb for dialing in custom bands and shifting between different bands for those figuring out how to best set up a slingshot for their purposes.
    I am totally happy with this design.

    Its awesome, just NOT for me :(

    Posted by Brad Cacace on May 7th 2018

    So, I love this thing. I have been looking to buy one forever, it's a perfect EDC slinger. However I cannot figure out where to hold to get a consistent shot. Now that is no negative mark to the Jelly itself, she is a beaut. I on the other hand am the problem LOL. Buddy of mine came by and was smacking cans all day with it, whereas I can't hit a can but every 7th shot or so. The Jelly Bean is an awesome slingshot just not in my hands. I am giving it 4 stars as it deserves, just because I am horrible with it doesn't make it a BAD slinger as my friend proved.

    excellent quality, good feel in the hand and shoots quite well with the provided band set once trimmed for proper draw length. the "ocu-whatever-polarity-whatnot" ball bearing pluggy things make band changes incredibly easy and really quick. definitely worth the ticket price!
