Like it so much I made a super grip version in walnut oak and teak.
Haven't shot one in 35 years

I am 52 going on 12, which is probably about the age I last used a slingshot. On a whim, I bought the Scout, set it up (FlipClips are awesome) and pretty much right out of the gate was hitting good groups at 10 yards. The more I shoot it, the more I want to shoot it. I'm more than a little impressed by the amount of power it has out of the box, passing clean through my makeshift target of 6 layers of corrugated cardboard. I'm planning on using it for small game, and have absolutely no concerns about it. More than enough impact there. Couldn't ask for a better reintroduction to slingshot shooting.

The Scout is well built, easy to set up with FlipClips, easy to shoot and accurate. Love the Scout!

wonderfully accurate slingshot, a tad rough to learn to set up correctly. But performs like a BOSS

As a beginner this review will be far from authoritative. I received my Scout in less than a week after placing the order which was great.
I began shooting right away and was consistently hitting a soda can from around 30',I was surprised and pleased. All was not great however as I experienced several fork hits - not the fault of the slingshot - but the hits damaged the plastic washer/bushing on the screw side and they had to be replaced. If you are new to shooting I would suggest ordering a few replacements when you order your Scout. Metal parts on the FlipClips may solve this one flaw with an otherwise excellent product. And as I become more proficient fork hits will cease to be a problem. I recommend SimpleShot, Nathan and the others there are very helpful and good to do business with.

This thing is cool. My first slingshot, and it's a blast. I am trying tube bands because the flat ones are a pain in the brain for me. The finger grooves on it give me a solid feel, and after a few days I was nailin anything I wanted.
Nice and perfect

Boy's dream come true!

At 56 there aren't much really fun things to do I haven't already done. Finally, finally being able to mess around with slingshota with this level of quality is soooo grat!
Thought the rubber was attached to the handle.

I received the item promptly but have to put the rubber band on. Did not appear to be very substantial. Will see.

Let's start with opening the package. When I first pulled the Scout out of the package, my first thought was "DANG!!! This thing looks freaking awesome!" Mind you this is my first slingshot I've ever owned. I had done some research on the Scout and I had a good idea of how the band retention system worked so I immediately put this bad boy into "work mode". I was pleased to find that it came with the new black latex bands as I had also done some research on different types of bands and I had decided that I liked them the best. At first I set up the Scout TTF, but after about 300 good and bad shots, I decided to try OTT. Dead on from the first shot. That's another thing I love about the Scout. You are able to change the band orientation according to your shooting preference. I come from an archery background so I had an idea of how to operate and aim the slingshot, but the Simple Shot YouTube channel made sure I had no doubts. So far I have put about 1500 3/8 steel shots through it and it is absolutely flawless! If you're looking for a great slingshot, there is NO way you can go wrong with the Scout Gen 2.
Great 1st slingshot

Suffered a birthday recently and decided to get something fun for myself. I thought a slingshot would be something I could enjoy in the backyard. After doing some research I settled on the Simple Shot Scout. I hadn't shot a slingshot in 30+ years and could not hit a thing back then. After watching some videos before my Scout arrived, I was able to hit CLOSE to where I was aiming, the Scout allowed me to try several different gripping styles in comfort and ease. With practice I am now HITTING what I aim at with astounding regularity. The Scout is accurate. It's easy to experiment with different grip styles, and plane fun to shoot. I'm now hooked.. got a Rambone 2.0 to keep my Scout company! Perfect !st slingshot.
