I would disagree with your assessment that it is a slungshot.

George is only providing us with options, not requirements.
me, i'd still prefer a bright flashlight clipped to my pocket, more versatile.
My only issue with this tool is the almost certain requirement for seeing the attack progressing at a distance. It's fairly large in the pocket, has a decent weight to it, and I haven't seen anything that makes it more effective an option than a different tool that I have a much better chance of accessing if I were to I get caught with my (hopefully proverbial) pants down. With limited space on my person, limited funds, and the limitations as stated by George, I give this item a personal thumbs down.
There are simply better tools available, IMO. The decision for your carry gear is up to you, however.
Interesting video. I like the demonstrations of counter defense, and I concur that a ridge-hand style of delivery would be the right way to deploy the sap. My chief concern is with centripetal force that would try to pull the sap off your finger. Some way of increasing retention would be an area to explore in further development.
Personally, for sap defense I'm kind of partial to the Sap Cap.
