Harris BiPod - any other bipods work?

I took stoney pt sticks and a harris bipod on my hunt last year. After giving up hunting for 16 years and getting some long range tac drivers from Kirby - I had amazingly few surprises. One was the stoney sticks were no use where I hunted. The Harris biPod worked great - but I was surprised that I could have used a taller unit. ( I got the swivel 9-13" and 13" was not enough to get over the grass ). I'm going to order the swivel 12" to 25" but I'd also like to get a couple other cheaper units for other guns (if anyone else makes a good biPod).

    Guys,
    Does the lockable version stop the rifle tilting over when not in use?
    I will be equipping my next stick with another Versa-Pod.
