Ammo: What good is a slingshot without ammunition? Some of the products on our list come as a complete purchase with their own ammo. Check this spec to determine if the one you’re eyeing is accompanied by projectiles.

Material: The products on our list are made from a variety of materials, including wood and metal. Check this spec to determine the composition of each model, so you end up with the perfect pick to suit your slingshot needs.
Magnetic: The easiest way to carry ammunition is via a magnetic bearing or pouch on the slingshot. We’ll let you know whether or not each product on the list has a magnetic component capable of holding steel ammo securely.
Weight: Make sure you end up with a slingshot that is comfortable to hold, by checking the weight of each product. The most ideal weight depends on who is using the slingshot and for which activities.
Size: Similar to how you should keep the weight of each model in mind, you want to ensure you end up with a slingshot that is easy to grip based on its size. Check this specification for the dimensions of each product on the list.
