    Short Version:

    Wow!

    Longer Version:

    Saunders pioneered wrist rockets almost 70 years ago. Its heritage of comfortable and accurate slingshots shines in the Wing.

    The innovative design includes a folding handle and cool-looking name-sake wings under a wide platform. The Wing would be at home in a 1950’s sci-fi movie or on Batman’s utility belt. The band attachment system puts minimal stress on the elastics and is literally a snap to use. Your thumb and index finger rest comfortably on the wings. The wide platform protects your hand from stray shots.

    All of the design elements make it possible to shoot the Wing with a relaxed grip. When shot as designed, it falls away from your hand after the release, much like an Olympic bow. This eliminates the torque associated with over-gripping the frame, and improves accuracy. Unless you are an Olympic archer, there is a learning associated with this grip. It is definitely worth the effort, so stick with it.

    When gripped properly, the frame melts into your hand and lines up precisely with the target. With a horizontal hold, the wide fork gap and over the top band configuration enables you to zero the top fork directly on the bullseye. If you do your job, it will deliver remarkable accuracy.

    This slingshot is designed for larger ammo. I highly recommend Clod-Poppers.

    I am primarily a target shooter and have several high-end target slingshots. The Wing is on a par with all of them, and a whole lot more fun to shoot.

    Bottom Line:

    Saunders hit the mark with the Wing, and so will you. Highly recommended!

    First slingshot I picked up in 20 plus years… it is a hoot of fun to be able to silently plink cans off easily at 10 yards… albeit their is a learning curve…. once I watched their videos and realized you have to hold the sling shot in the horizontal orientation.
    Two bits of advice …
    1 … Buy the piper sights… if you don’t you will wish you did and probably reorder as I did. it is much more accurate than I thought a slingshot would be….
    2… do not buy the Stryker bands if you are shooting clod poppers… they are heavier bands and intended for shooting heavier steel or lead rounds. If shooting clod poppers their is no advantage only disadvantage as the pouch will tear before the bands ever fail.

    The wing is my new “go to”. After shooting it I can’t ever see myself shooting anything else!!! I really only bought it because it was different and odd. But when I pull it out everyone wants to shoot it- especially when I can hit targets at 40 ft. and they can’t!!! Love the idea it folds up and can carry an extra band. Im 68 and it brought sling shots back into my life, thanks Saunders!! Oh yea, the customer service ????? You don’t find people who care and still enjoy the sport like them.

    The wing is very comfortable and fun to shoot. This new design makes it easy to shoot without a wrist brace. It also helps you practice your archery no grip release. I’m very happy with it!!

  • Setting Flat-band Power

    We go about flat-band power settings differently from the rest of the industry. What we use is percentage of stack. Stack is the length at which the bands can no longer stretch. At anchor we like about 70% to 80 % of stack. In rough terms this means stack would happen about 3 to 5 inches past your anchor point. Shooting in this range generally gives one the best of both accuracy and longevity but it can be a little fickle. Sometimes this sweet spot varies with the slingshot model and ammo so we recommend experimenting. You may find your ideal power setting is 65% or 75% or it may be related to the model your shooting. The bottom line is to trust your instincts and you will know when the bands are just right.
