Re: Help Me Pick a Bipod

Notched legs & Pod-Loks are a given for me now-Works best for me.
Another add-on I have been using more is the Pod-Paws

Re: Help Me Pick a Bipod

I have neve actually used "the pod lock" but just got two of the T-nuts bipod locks and seem to work great so far. I got two for a little under $20 shipped to my house. I happened to find this article ( Western Shooter - Online Shooting Magazine: T-Nuts.Com Bipod Lock )and figured i would try them considering i am new and on a tight budget. I got one of the metal stainless and one of the nylon stainless on their website t-nuts.com
Hope this helps.

Harris leg-notch canting model 9-13". You can knock it down to 9" and shoot fine prone, and if you need the extra height you have 4". If you are primarily shooting off a bench tho, go with the 6-9".;)

Re: Help Me Pick a Bipod

I like the 9-13" and have taken advantage of the extra height on a couple shots. The pod-loc is an essential addition. Not sure I understand the logic of not having a swiveling model. The ground is rarely flat and almost never horizontal. I get the legs as close as possible to make the reticle level but then rely on unlocking, setting and locking the pod-loc.
