The Hammer Slingshot / Slingbow is the most advanced modern adult slingshot on the market.
Capable of being shot with or without a wrist brace, this slingshot/slingbow offers the marksman the opportunity to have one unit to support multiple shooting disciplines. Whether you are an archer or bowhunter looking for the next challenge or enjoy bowfishing, The Hammer has got you covered.
For the slingshot enthusiast, there has never been a more adjustable and stable shooting platform. The hammergrip provides for the strongest and most intuitive of all grips. Combine this with the additional stability afforded by the removable wrist brace and the quick change patent pending Ocularis™ band attachment system, you can go from shooting heavy hunting bands with wrist support to light weight plinking bands without. The Hammer accepts both flatband and tubular band, all in one slingshot platform.
The Hammer Slingshot may be purchased as a complete kit or as a slingshot alone, with or without the folding wristbrace.

--I bought the Complete Slingbow package ($99.00)
--The item arrived very quickly
--Packaging was sufficient and organized neatly
--Direction /Instruction pamphlets (2) were adequate,
but, need some redlining (proposed changes),
hence, the 4 stars...
--A couple of 4 inch strips and 12 inches of parachord
is include, but for what? hence, the 4 stars
Product Testing--The Hammer Slingshot / Slingbow
---It is an absolutely, unbelievably, benchmark design
---The speed in which you can go from slingshot,
to Slingbow...is as fast as you can pull the upper
metal tab, pop out the Slingshot Head and inserting
the Slingbow Head into the detent feature
What i have done--thus far
-I used an extra 1 inch flashlight to pica-tinny adapter
that i had lying around. It has a pushbutton,
quick-release function that ROCKs! And that I highly
-So, i inserted the aluminum 1 inch roundstock adapter,
that is tapped for 1/4-20, i believe, on both ends,
into this quick change adapter and snugged the
2 pieces together. Now, no more tools required!
1 push of the button and it's on the slingbow and off!
-i installed a real seat adapter to the 1 inch roundstock
-i purchased the Zebco 808 Bowfishing Reel Stainless
Steel Cover-200Lb Braid pre-istalled
-i bought the OMP Fin Finder Rock Solid Reel Seat Blue
Rpm Burnout Power Rod
-also purchased the "2 of AMS Bowfishing Fiberglass Arrow w/Ankor FX Point & Safety Slide"
Now, i can switch from -1 (my terminology for the slingshot configuration) to the -2. The slingbow config.
Thanks for making a quality product Simple-Shot!
Second slingshot ever owned.
First one was from Walmart.
I like the interchangeable heads.
They fit pretty tight but some grease helps alleviate the problem with the heads sticking.
I don't like the piece of leather that is the pull tab on the bow head.
It gets in the way of using a wrist pull and release trigger device.
Aiming is a challenge. My ammo is always a few millimeters above or below my intended target.
It took me seven shots to finally broadside a rabbit in the hind quarter.
Over all however, excellent product and I look forward to using it a lot.
Four stars because, there is no such thing as perfect.
a few weeks ago I bought, for the first time, three slingshots from Simple Shot. com. these were not my first slingshots-probably somewhere around my fiftieth+ or so-My first slingshot at age 8 was some plastic yellow handled rig with flat bands and a storage compartment in the handle. Then a wood Whamo and a Black plastic marksman. Then the original wrist rocket. Dozens of different models over that 50 year period. Right now I am a full time archery coach after retiring from the federal government and my wife and son are nationally prominent tournament archers. He's been shooting slingshots more than half his 19 years on earth. So I bought a pair of the Hammers (without the arrow attachment-we have dozens of recurves, compounds crossbows, etc) and they arrived tonight. Ian (my son) put them together and we went into our archery range where I have a slingshot range up for the summer. a couple hundred shots each-Ian and I each had a couple strange flights (shooting daisy glass slingshot marbles) early on but after that no issues. The grip is wonderful. The brace is excellent-I like how it can be adjusted. The wrist brace is in the proper place allowing a very relaxed grip (as opposed to some other brands where the pressure is down from the top rather than the bottom of the handle where it should be) the balance is excellent. I really have nothing I could suggest to improve the Hammer. we are using basic flat bands OTF set up that come with it. Yes, these were easily the two most expensive SS's I have ever purchased but I'd say they are worth the money. We are very happy with the Hammers. BTW the service from Simple Shot.Com is excellent: no complaints and the written instructions are pretty easy to understand.
I really enjoy the hammer and it is my favorite slingshot. It is so versatile and well built it is a lot of fun switching heads and shooting some arrows. The wrist brace is something I didn't realize I needed. It takes a lot of stress off or the arm when you are shooting with heavier bands. It has a optional pocket shot head which makes the pocket shot much more functional. The occularis plugs are excellent and makes changing bands a breeze. I plan on picking up another slingshot head so I can have dedicated heads, one with light bands and one with heavy bands. You did a great job on this one Simple Shot.
This Hammer Slingshot is built like the Incerdible Hulk!!!!
Shot inside with marbles and it worked like a charm.
Love the customer service too. Always response to my questions. From all the slingshots I have purchased this is by far the BEST. When warm weather comes up I'll be trying out the arrows.
In all my life i have used many different slingshots. So i was very curios to try the Hammer. Very new and modern, i'd say innovative in the design. But at the same time the Hummer is very easy to use it and in aiming the target. It doesn't lose the simplicity of using the more traditional models.
Only one big defect: the basic flatbands provided with the slingshot are to weak to shot the more heavy amno like the 1/2 inch ones. Buying the Hummer you want to use them and not the lightest.
Greetings from Rome
This slingshot has exceeded all my expectations so far. I have no had much opportunity to get a whole lot of shooting yet. After reading other comments I plan to shorten the flat bands a bit? Extremely well thought out and designed slingshot, kudos!
I have tried many a slingshots in my days and I thought they where killing until I tried the hammer. It is a beast, mark my whords. The only complaint is that you have to shorten the bandset quite a lot to get the punch you want. All in all?
The slingshot of your dreams
I chose the black Hammer with the wrist brace. I wanted it for its ability to shoot arrows. What a great product. Its so easy its stupid. Same anchor point as my compound bow plus I can use my release too. Can you say crazy accurate, I cant put this thing down because its so gratifying to hit where you want every time. This is 10 times better then the Marksman Pocket Hunter I recently got for my Son. What a huge disappointment that purchase was! Now I cant wait to get the fishing package for the hammer. Oh yeah cant forget the other head for it. Big improvement over my wrist rocket from my childhood. I tried the semi butterfly and wow insane velocity. I can definitely hit more time with the Hammer then with the wrist rocket. love the old rocket but I gotta be honest. This thing is State of the art!!!
The Hammer covers all my needs for hunting and fishing. Out of the box, easy to assemble, and with the aid of Simple Shots Youtube videos, I sized the bands to my draw for the first time on a slingshot. What a difference the correct band length makes in power. The quality of The Hammer is outstanding, very detailed, and super rugged. The Ocularis system works like a dream. The sling bow head works better than expected, based on my experience with other sling bows. Easy to nock the arrow, no arrow rise-up. The bands for the sling bow are very well made, and work perfectly with my release. Cant wait to bow fish with it. I will be ordering two more in the near future for my two sons.
The product seems solid but the wrist brace is fold away which makes the item difficult to carry. For the price I expected this basic feature. Also it's extremely difficult to change heads... if I had known this I wouldn't have bought it...
This is my second review on the Hammer but thought it necessary, I have the Hammer/Slingbows and know what makes this so sweet is the ability to switch heads right? But oh know I thought why do this , so I purchased the Hammer Pocket so I could install my SS head with my first purchase on to this one, and can still use the pocket if need be, crazy I know but I'm loving it, Just a great combo for me, just throwing it out there
