    I was finally able to pre-order the pink scout (save the ta-tas) from Simple Shot. :D Only downside is I will be in Michigan for work for the next two weeks and may not be home when it arrives. :(

    I was talking to my wife and both of us were hoping for a purple one, but pink will have to do. Besides, part of the proceeds go to a good cause.

    I want to get a kit when I am old enough and experience enough to use bearing and handle saws :) I will get my first scrolling saw when I am 17 .....

    I also look forward to the time when I can start building my own slingshots. I've never shot a flat-band one and figured FlippinOut was a great place to start.

    Nice. I've debated getting one myself for Mrs. Withak. I just don't think she would appreciate a slingshot as much as some of us do, even if it helps the ta tas.

    If only I could get my wife to shoot slingshots as well. Maybe the pink one will get her interested. Either way, I'll enjoy my pink Scout.

    I thing the scout is an awesome start for a flatband slingshot, I love mine. took me a little while to get used to flatbands. thankfully the scout is a very forgiving platform for beginners.
    that said though I can't wait for the commercial rambone to finally be release, I'm dying to do a side by side comparison!

    The scout is good decision Jeremy, slingshots from Nathan are all great versatile shooters ... I don't have one but read a lot of good opinions about ...
    Cheers

    Hi Jeremy,

    I spent some time with the Scout :) and it's a great choice for a starter.
    It's versatility is outstanding. You can try different grips and attachment methods with that frame. Previous weekend I teamed up with friends - two of them starters - and they tried the Scout. It's not a small frame and not for wearing in your pocket all day long, but it's as safe as possible. Wide fork, cool pouch. It's a great choice for an all-rounder frame.

    Yup, and don't forget those latex bands... :D

    Default band shoots best with 3/8" or 10mm steels.

    Bests,
    Tremo

    Jeremy, you'll look like a badass shooting the pink scout. People will be thinking damn that dude must be tough to be shooting a pink slingy, then give them a vacant stare whilst quoting Jack Nicholson from the shining. They will run;).

    Add to that the fact that I'm 6'5" and bald and usually sporting some sort of facial hair. I've been told I can be a little intimidating.

    Well then, that just begs for photos. I'm picturing a wide shot of you going after a bunch of young trick-or-treaters, chasing them down with your big, bad, pink slingshot. It would be timeless :p

    Yeah, I've actually been told that through school, that I looked intimidating. I'm all of 5'2" but apparently I used to look pissed all the time. I don't think I look intimidating, but I wouldn't cross me to find out what I'm capable of. :p

    I don't think anyone in their right mind would cross you.
