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.

Re: bi-pod poll

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.
