The JellyBean micro slingshot

JellyBean™ Yellow Jacket

(24 reviews) Write a Review
$24.99

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 design...as 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.

    The most straightforward slingshot

    Posted by Uri Bar-Zeev on Sep 29th 2016

    I already have quite a few SS that look greater and more "professional". My wife says cynically "Why do you need more, can you shoot with more than one SS at the time?"
    Well, I was looking for the one that can be ALWAYS on me without the feeling a burden. I think I found the one.
    Another advantage - because of it's size, it is very convenient for the "intuitive flip shooting style" which lately I started to practice.
    At this price - an excellent cost effective straightforward slingshot.

    amazing little bean

    All I can say first of all is I love the two colours used in making this frame . Suggest offer it in different colours like the scout. Now the occularis plug design is hard to beat . That said it allows for a lot of power in depending on band or tubes chosen . Only gripe is its grip in my hand shifts . A great little pocket power house.

    Great Sling Shot

    Posted by Zachary on Sep 8th 2016

    This is the first Ocularis sling shot that I actually enjoyed shooting. It has a much smaller width and fork gap than most of the other offerings with Ocularis plugs. I still prefer wrap and tuck for flatbands, but for single tubes the plugs are my new favorite attachment method.

    This one is also very thing which makes it good for backpacking/camping.

    Fun in a small package

    Being fairly new to slingshots, I wasn't sure what to expect. But this little guy is a fantastic piece of kit to have. It is extremely well built and as accurate as can be. I really enjoy this on and it's easy to carry as well.

    Perfect grip

    Posted by RayK on Aug 28th 2016

    Perfect size. Perfect for those that like to grip the outer edges of the fork. The Ocularis plugs provide grip, easy band change, and protection against fork hits. This is the best Ocularis frame.

    Neat little handful

    Really cool little slingshot that fits down in your hand. Seems like it's only good for over the top, so the ocularis plug system is limited by large hands. Shoots real nice once you get it figured out

    Glad this little frame hit the scene. Fun to shoot. Easy to carry, Ocularis style plugs make banding/tubing a cinch. Great product. Innovative design and fully functional.

    Great Design and Value!

    Posted by Diaboloslinger on Aug 10th 2016

    This thing is right up my alley...Compact and ergonomic. The quality/finish are well worth the price of this lil' feller. The band set that comes with it is not my exact cup of tea, but works great nonetheless...I'll use it until it wears out.
    Get one of these while you can!

    Pocket size

    Posted by Ibojoe on Aug 6th 2016

    Three of my favorites rolled into one! The size of my axiom champ. The offset handle of my torque. And super easy band attachment of my ocularis. It has quickly became my favorite. At this price you need to snag one of these!

    I adore this shooter. Feels great in the hand and I really do prefer small slingshots so it's perfection. No praise fine enough, just get one and enjoy. I gotta go punish some cans now.
