Lightest weight bipods

I like the Harris but is there anything lighter out there similar to their 6-9?

Thanks.

    I don't know of any lighter models that would hold up with an LR rig.

    Go with the S Models though rather than the old standard. That way you can easily get your cant right.

    I just got a caldwell 6-9 that pivots as well. 1/2 the price of the harris and it does seem a bit lighter to me. We'll see how it holds up. I've got one harris as well, just figured I'd try the less expensive one. I've tried the Shooters Ridge, a lightweight one from cabelas, Harris and now the caldwell. So far, I see no reason why to buy the Harris with the new Caldwell. Just my opinion - anyone been using one very long?

    Here's a review on the Caldwell by Chuck Hawks. Maybe they've improved in the last couple of years but he appears to be less than impressed.

    Caldwell XLA 13" to 23" Pivot Model Bipod
