help me choose a bipod, and dont say harris...

Im looking for a new bipod for my custom 375CT that is almost finished. i refuse to put a crappy harris bipod on a $5500 rifle, so please suggest something decent.
Cheers

What about the Harris don't you like?

They seem to work good for everyone else.

+1 W/ geargrinder. You took away my vote before it was even cast. Did you have a bad experience with Harris?

the harris are flimsy, have many exposed sharp edges / springs that get caught in trees/gear etc, they rust easily and i just plain dont like the look of them. I dont believe they support the weight and recoil of a 20lb 375cheytac adequately either. I want somthing better. Im thinking along the lines of ATLAS, parker hale, rock sopmod etc etc. Somthing SOLID.

I agree I have never liked them much, and they are really loud.......

I still love mine, but Point taken. Unfortunately I have no experience with any of the afore mentioned. I look forward to seeing what you choose. Post pics when you get it all put togather. Sounds like a neat project.
Or invest in a gun bearer and some wagon wheels. That'd make a great pic too.
