Aldon- I'm interested to know how the snipepod worked for you on your hunt?
Both my father and my uncle have used the snipepod for years with great success. The terrain we hunt is often not conducive to shooting prone so the sitting model seems to work well. I currently use a pair of Stoney point shooting sticks and it seems when we all are hurrying to get set up for a shot, inevitably my father and uncle will be on target long before I am through futzing around with my sticks. My hangup with the Harris has always been the weight and it seems the snipepod gives 90%-95% of the stability of the harris for a fraction of the weight penalty.
In the spirit of full disclosure, the person who manufactures these is an acquaintance of my father but none of us (except the guy who builds them) benefits if any of you buy a pair. So take my comments for what you think they're worth.
Personally, I like the product because of the versatility and light weight. I do think they are a bit on the spendy side for what you get though.

I am heading out east to hunt and am only a coupel of months recovered from Knee and hip Surgury so kneeling and Prone position while doable, is less than ideal. Pain and slowness of movement leave me believing I will likely be sitting or standing.
I like the concept a lot and if they are as good as they appear to be, I will be very pleased.
I like that you can use the standing version as a bipod, in essence having my cake and eat it too.
Thanks again for the heads up on these 300saum.
