    Scouts for Marines

    Posted by Vance Hall on Jun 16th 2019

    For nearly a decade, SimpleShot has helped me send Scouts to deployed Marines. These are the most popular items that I send. I just sent more, and undoubtedly I’ll hear back in several weeks. This gives me more joy than almost anything else, except projects with my grandkids.

    Better than everyone says it is. In a week I like it better than my Hammer or Axiom Ocularis. The new X clips are fantastic and easier to work with. Overall quality and materials are perfect.

    Love the scout, got it for my birthday. I have been a surgical tube guy, and now I am a flat band shooter. I love your company and find the website very helpful.

    The scout is a great slingshot and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I will never go back to surgical tube style slingshots ever again, keep up the good work. As ever, Scott

    Scout Slingshot

    Very easy to shoot and very accurate. Had to cut my bands about 3/4" shorter than usual because of the attachment system.

    best slingshot ever

    Posted by Mike on Apr 15th 2019

    with the newer clips that hold the bands, it's even better than before. best thing about the scout is the grooves for thumb and forefinger - makes a perfect fit while shooting.

    I grew up in the Philippine using fork from guava tree. I never had one like the Scout before and it's awesome!

    Got my Scout yesterday. Set it up TTF with the FlipClipX in no time. Shot about 100 shots today and I was mighty impressed. Quality sling, comfortable in my hand and extremely accurate. Everything I’d hoped for. The new black bands are awesome. Highly recommend this slingshot and the black bands. You can’t go wrong with it. Fantastic service and fast delivery as well. couldn’t be happier!

    Scout Review

    Posted by Bo on Jan 16th 2019

    I’m comparing the scout to my Torque from Simple Shot and the Hathcock Target Sniper from Pocket Predator. The Scout is much easier to learn to shoot than the Torque. It is also very accurate (at least in my hands). I would say the Scout and the HTS are of equal Accuracy, both well made and great for any experience level shooter.

    The Scout has a few uncomfortable area when shooting for prolonged periods, 300-500 rounds. But this was very easy to remedy with some files and sand paper (see Nathan’s video). It now fits my hand very well and I can shoot for a long time.

    Over all, I would not hesitate to buy the Scout again. I would get it before the Toque. It’s a great slingshot that has the benefit of Flip Clips that make band changes a 30 second affair. It came set up OTT but I changed to TTF. As previously noted- it is very accurate and solid. I did have a hard fork hit and the damage was almost not noticeable. In summary- Simple Shot makes Top Shelf gear and the Scout is no exception.

    One of the best setups for anyone interested in the sport. The variable OTT, TTF configurations adds a whole new level of diversity. The Flip Clip option is brilliant and allows for quick setup.
