    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.

    This is my second Scout, purchased as a backup in case something happened to my other one. The Scout is an excellent slingshot that fits my hand and style of shooting perfectly. I have tried slingshots from other makers and, for me, the Scout always outperforms all of them. A quick word about Simpleshot Shooting Sports. Order from them with complete confidence that their products are exactly as advertised, shipping is very quick, my last order arrived in 3 days, and the customer support is excellent. I wish all companies did business the way these guys do. Thanks for helping me get stated in an enjoyable hobby.

    I am new to the hobby and just purchased the Scout and different size bands that were recommended to me, by the staff, for my chosen ammo. I am loving it. Have a couple of nice indoor ranges set up at my work, so when I feel like relaxing for a bit, I can improve my form. Loving it! Will order some other styles, soon.

    My first slingshot since I was a kid and what can I say... I love it! It looks very durable, is easy to assemble and use, and I have one of the best time of my life learning how to aim, trying different grips and bands positionning...
    I can’t say much regarding the more technical aspects of the Scout, lacking experience with slingshots, but I can’t see how I could be disapointed!
    As a bonus, it only took 6 days to deliver to France, so, yay!

    This slingshot is perfect - perfect grip, perfect symetry, perfect band attachment system, perfect weight / mass and perfect material. As good as any slingshot I've ever made from natural oak forks.

    This is one of 4 Simple-Shot designs that I own - and it's the best - if I would have purchased the Scout first I wouldn't have purchased the other 3 - axiom ocularis, beanflip or torque (i've posted reviews of these).

    If you enjoy hunting with primitive weapons as I do - then the Scout will surely get a solid spot in your aresenal.

    Great slingshot. I've started shooting with the B-B bands on this slingshot using the orange practice ammo. This is a good band match to the light weight ammo. The on line videos have been very helpful in learning the ins and outs of using this slingshot and tuning it for accuracy. Highly Recommended
