Best tall tripod for hunting?

We just booked a late season hunt with an outfitter and will be going in early December for elk. This outfitter highly recommends tall shooting sticks or tripods, and uses the Stoney Point ones himself. In addition, he highly recommends purchasing our own set to use and practice with before we go.

Right now we're looking at 3 units. They are

the Stoney Point Explorer Tripod:
Stoney Point - ConvertaPod Explorer Tripod

the Ultrec Quick-Change in camo:
quick change sticks, pro hunter sticks, shooting sticks, ball head, grip action ball head, Wisconsin, WI

and the Bog Gear CLD:
BOGgear.com - Camo Legged Devil Shooting Sticks

Anyone out there who has used one of these units and has input? I've searched the site here as well as Googled them. Stoney Point seems to have reviews but not the other two. We would appreciate any input you have, especially since I hope to order them ASAP.

Thanks!

I have the bog pod, did not even know the middle one existed until now.

but had looked at the stoney point some, and definitely like the bog pod better. the v bracket rotates, and just seems to work a bit better

also, i believe that the stoney point does not have tab secured legs, they are twist, which i think is a big plus for the bog pod. the bog pod and the other one look very similar.

Primos® Trigger Stick™ Tripod

It adjusts to any terrain and height with a squeeze of the trigger. I doubt that anything can beat it for speed....I got one for about $100 on ebay last year and it works as advertised.

I am going to take a set of shooting stix and attach to two of the legs to make a rear rest.

edge.

My business partner has these and they do work great, but they're about a pound heavier than I'd like (3 pounds, 4 ounces - we weighed them last week). As he notes, they're fine when sitting or in a stand, but who wants to drag around half the weight of a second rifle all day?
