    I have checked out the Atlas brand,.. they are nice seemingly well built units.

    However,.. I find myself in more sitting positions while hunting / shooting and the Atlas brand is somewhat limited to meet my needs in that shooting position. Not to mention the cost factor of the Atlas, the 3 of my Harris combined would equate to the 1 Atlas.

    I own 2 of the HB25CS & one of the HBLS units.

    My 7 Mag and .338 WM both utilize the 13 1/2" to 27 inch 25CS units as they are my normal long range shooting weapons for big game.

    I utilize the shorter HBLS (9" to 13") primarily for my varmint hunting IE: yotes,etc. as I do find myself in the prone position for that mode of hunting almost always.

    The one feature I do like with the Atlas is the locking ability in the forward and backward positions,... that isn't available on the Harris units.

    I'd like to see some of y'all that use bi-pods discuss what they weigh for those of us that don't, but might some day, use them.

    Re: bi-pod poll

    El' Cheapo Champion 9"-13" swivel bipod for me. It's a blatant knockoff of the Harris S series but considering they are only around $50 CAD it means the difference between having one and not having one at this point. As a guy shooting a Stevens dropped into a Boyd's stock, I represent the shoestring budget in a big way.

    Is it as strong as a Harris? No. Does it have the notched legs for easy and secure adjustments? No. Does it have any pride of ownership? No.

    Does it provide me with a rock solid front rest that allows me to approximately match my benchrest accuracy from the dirt? Yes.

    Now I don't know how to live without a bipod, even if it's just a knockoff. After the new barrel, Kestrel, better reloading scale, good alpine boots, Fallkniven knife, etc... Then it might be time to have a serious look at the Atlas. They seem really nice.
