My rebirth was with Scout.

 

The Swiss Army knife of slingshots.

 

Genius design by an expert shooter.

 

Somehow, its versatility has led some people to believe that it lacks capability at the high end, where the mainstay is precision-

 

  Hogwash!

 

 

The Scout is as capable as any, superior to many, what Forrest gave to Jenny, and worth every penny.

 

Scout.

Maybe off topic but bill Hayes makes all flavors of slingshots.
Some are pricey some take time to get but
They are worth a look to .

Ive looked through them and while nice the designs don't excite me like the ones from simple-shot, Im sure there just as good but its a chevy/ford thing for me. Maybe they will grow on me some day?

I'd suspect as you're asking - the Scout would the one to go for. I also think its better made - and better value for money.

 

Its general design approach results in a more forgiving design, as well as being more adaptable.

 

Also thanks to its band attachment - the heads allow for almost any band or tube approach you could want.

I have all 3, all depends on what you prefere they all have a similar outer fork gap so the anchor stays the same, the ppmg and scout are more forgiven than the ppsg as the ppsg has a different cup that makes a fork hit more likely to happen, the ppsg is one of those frames were you learn from your mistakes fast and notice a mistake you wouldnt on the scout and ppmg because one mistake you will forkhit the ppsg, if your a pinch grip shooter id recommend you to go ppmg then when you get good at that maybe considering a ppsg aswell in the future... but if your a more finger thumb brace shooter i must say the scout 100%.. in overall decision id personally choose the ally if i were you as its ott and ttf,brace grip and also pinch, and has a nice forkgap and comfy all round frame.
