I downed my first Slingshot scoop today and was pleasantly surprised.
The highlight ingredients of Slingshot in my opinion are BCAA, Tyrosine, , Cit Mal, and Waxy Maize. It's meant to be used as a non-stim preworkout pick me up, workout focus, and blend.
Just as a disclaimer, I know my sig says "Axis" on the bottom, but I promise that doesn't change the way I give honest feedback on products.
I took Slingshot on an empty stomach about 20 minutes preworkout. My initial impression was that it had a pleasnantly mild bubble gum flavor. It mixed rediculously easy and the consistency was just fine to me.
I think the tyrosine absorbed quickly. I had a little mood improveement and felt awake after a bruiser of a work day. That effect occured within about 5-10 minutes.
After about 15-20 minutes, some mild tingles kicked in. It usually takes at LEAST 1.5g for me to tingle. We don't know exactly how much is in the prop blend, but I'd bet it's at least 1.5g since I got a little tingle.
About 15 minutes into my workout (maybe 30ish minutes after dosing), I was feeling good and saw significantly increased vascularity. We're not talking ON cycle vascularity, but it was some pretty good vasodilation. I'd say it was as noticable as any good preworkout mix that I've tried in that department.
I moved fast through a full body HST workout today. I was pretty impressed that I hadn't collapsed after about 14 working sets. Let me tell ya, that's not 14 sets of curls, we're talking deads, bench, rows, sh presses... I hit the wall after 14 sets and I'd say just about 60 minutes into the workout. I trudged through a few sets of shrugs and called it a day.
I'm a total ego so I flexed in the mirror when I got home. There was a bit of extra muscle fullness going on, especially in the "pump" muscles like bis and traps. I'd like to think that the Waxy Maize played a role in that effect as well.
My overall first impression of Slingshot is that it's a nice preworkout mix. I'm a total stim wuss when it comes to evening workouts. And I've been searching for months for a pre workout pick me and usually end up disappointed. But I think this time I may have found a more reliable alternative to stims. IMO it's at least worth a shot for those of us who have no freakin choice but to workout in the evening.
Again, I have no intention to "product push." This is just my honest to goodness first impression.
Edit: I should also note that I have a terribly sensitive stomach. Fortunately, I had no bloat, no gas, and no GI discomfort whatsoever with Slingshot.
