I do. One of my favorite raw bench assistance exercises is mid-close grip bench with my slingshot. I've never had a movement so thoroughly nail my triceps.

I also like to use the slingshot for form work. I credit it with the rather large jumps in my raw paused bench lately. I'm not a fan of most overload work, but if you come at it with a focus on form than I think it can do wonders.

I'm going to continue to use the slingshot combined with accomodating resistance from chains to help prepare my joints and triceps for shirted pressing (I was able to do 345+30lb of chains with the slingshot a few days ago), but my main focus will continue to be raw lifting for now.
