What length of bipod is prefered

Just like it says. What length of bipod do you prefer for prone shooting? 6-9 or 9-13. I really wish the made a 7-11.

I've seen quite a few 7-11's been known to get my coffee there only kidding. Seriously I prefer 6-9.

Depends on what you will be doing with it. Off a bench the 6-9 will be a good choice. If you are hunting and may encounter grass or weeds the 9-13 is what I use all the time. Also if you have a sporter stock, (like a senero) I have found the a 9 to 13 raised up 3" off the lowest setting will get the stock in the right place on your shoulder and can help prevent scope rash with rifle that has significant recoil.

For my hunting situation, I use 13 1/2" to 27" (H25CS) that allows me prone to sitting position.

I like the 9-13 for big game and something that goes 30" for coyotes. I always shoot coyotes sitting and big game, LR I shoot prone but I can't get down low enough with the 6-9 to get lined up because I end up looking over my glasses not through them.

Re: What length of bipod is prefered

Seriouly, it depends on how big of a belly you have.

This is true story!

I first bought the 9-13 and it was ok but a little too tall... and I have a real expensive belly. So I bought the 6-9 and it might be a tad short in spite of my efforts to hold it in "my belly I mean". I never thought of it but I think I need a 7-11.
