I think that Harris kind of has the market. Thier most expensive is a so called swivle. I kind of like just the talls for about $99

Tell us a bit about the Snipe Pod, is it robust enough for hunting situations? I'm thinking about purchasing one, cause it is so light, but would like to know your opinion of it..

I have the snipe pod mounting system on two rifles with one snipe pod, The biggest advantage is light weight. It is not rock solid but works good for a shorter shot range say around 400 yards or shorter but I think a longer shot your biopod should be solid.

Re: Bi Pod reasearch

I have 2 snipepod models, and make shots well past 400 yrds. They are not as sturdy as a harris type, but I use them for weight factor. If I am in the mountains and can sit with back against a tree trunk, this helps alot. I use pack w/pod various set up with terrian to get steady. I also run it in high basins in deep snow, have been able to flop prone but still keep gun out of the snow for a shot, with 27'' type pod. I prefer a harris type for antelope.

I absolutely love the Stoney Point Rapid Pivot bipods. I love the fact that they are lightweight and are easily removed. I can shoot as well with them as any other bipod I have shot off of. Check them out for 40 bucks you can't go wrong.
