Notwithstanding it comes in at 24.7 oz, you might want to consider the CF-LWSS from Star Shooter (Canada)
- carbon fiber legs and the balance in aluminum. Plus, for me, triple handles plus a wheel. I may still order one just because they look so super slick. The associated image is here
. The prices are in CND and they ship to the US (order the 30 oz model online but you will need to call for the 24.7 oz version, possibly too new).
If you find a functionally excellent bipod, with QD, at or under 16 oz, PLEASE pass the word.
