Designed from the beginning to be held deeply in the hand for maximum leverage the Slant is not only compact, but full size where it counts. The compound tapers emanating from the center of mass of this slingshot provide the user a balanced and intuitive grip that fits in a pocket but fills the hand. The fork tips provide a precise aiming reference without the bulk of a traditional sight.
The Slant Roller Pro slingshot is made of CNC machined aluminum for a substantial heft. This is one dense frame. For those who prefer to tie their bands on, the Roller is a wrap and tuck slingshot. The Slant Press Pro is for you if you want a heavy dense OTT frame and like to tie on your band set.Mark Seljan designed slingshots are available exclusively at SimpleShot.
Here's the inspiration behind Mark Sejlan's design of the Slant Slingshot;
"My design school was built on the heritage of the Bauhaus art movement and art, theory, and practice, were hand-in-hand. As much as I like to look into the future I like to go back to the bench. I had the Bugsy design in cast aluminum and was eager to use the technology to create a fine geometrical shape with exciting tapers. At first, it was like an illustration of slingshot anatomy in a pure form. Each of the functions was symbolized with a planar surface.
It took plenty of time and iterations to create the proportions. It was completed in cast aluminum when I recognized it has to be thicker by one millimeter. So I started over, and created the first Slant in the line."
The Slant Press Pro is made by Luca, a fellow slingshot enthusiast, in Vietnam.Available in the two finishes you asked for most, Gunmetal and Black.
