THE TORQUE™ OWNERS MANUAL
The Torque™ slingshot is a joint project between Mark Seljan and SimpleShot. The result is a perfect EDC slingshot that you'll want with you all the time.
This manual will go over setup of your slingshot and knowledge to make sure you safely and correctly use your Torque slingshot.
GET TO KNOW YOUR TORQUE™ SLINGSHOT
The Shooter Side
The Torque can literally be held in any direction with either hand. The Shooter side is whichever side is facing YOU when you're shooting.
The Target Side
The side of the Torque that's facing the target when you shoot whether held left or right handed, right side up or down.
FlipClip X™ for Torque™
The Torque now comes with FlipClips for attaching virtually ANY bandset you'd like.
Switch Tubes in seconds
Originally a dedicated tube shooter, the Torque is still king of the hill for easy tube changes. Just stretch and pop the tube through the slot.
OTT (Over The Top)
The Torque is a dedicated OTT (Over The Top) shooter. The wide forktips accommodate large bandsets.
A simple piece of paracord that attaches to the handle of your Torque frame and secures the slingshot to your frame-holding hand.
Do not shoot stones or rocks from any slingshot.
Rocks - no matter how round they look – shoot erratically and shooting them may damage your slingshot and bands.
Due to the uncontrollable nature of shooting non-spherical projectiles, shooting a rock from a SimpleShot slingshot voids any / all warranties.

GET TO KNOW FLIPCLIP X™ FOR TORQUE
Make sure you understand how FlipClips work for the best experience!
Every FlipClip has a "tooth."
This upper side of the clip has a "tooth" perfectly machined to fit your Torque.
Left and Right components.
The logos engraved on each clip will show you which is which.
Flip Clip Orientation.
The logos should be on the INSIDE of the fork with the bands over the top.
INSTALL YOUR BANDS ON YOUR TORQUE SLINGSHOT
INSTALLING TUBES OTT (over the top)
Stretch the tube a bit to narrow it down to fit through the slot.
Pull the loop through the slot in the Torque forktip. It's that simple.
Ensure the loop is seated in the center of the forktip in the tube groove.
Never pull the tube back with the tube around either side of the fork-tip.
INSTALLING BANDS OTT (over the top)
Place FlipClip with logos facing IN and "tooth" edge in the frame groove.
Place the fastener and thread it JUST until it catches.
Place the band into the groove of the frame and under the "tooth" of the FlipClip.
Tighten down the fastener. Do NOT over-tighten.
Which Grip should I use with my Torque™ Slingshot?
