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.
Overall Height: 4.5"
Overall width(outside forks): 3.25"
Fork Gap: 1.25"
Nice to use
It's taken the place of the Axiom (slimline) as the one I slip into my pocket each day. No bigger than a pickle fork but thrice as easy for me to use. Love the way it seems to fit itself to my hand as I draw back & my accuracy has greatly been enhanced.
this frame is perfect. does everything and fits great in a pocket. my first ocularis and i like the system and how it feels. also my first frame with a pinky hole.
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.
I like everything about it - the name, shape, size, colors, plugs ... Thanks Simpleshot for another amazing home run.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 little edc slingshot! Innovative design and bargain priced, you can't go wrong with the jellybean! Couldn't be happier! Thanks SimpleShot for the great products and excellent service!
