Who's using a rear monopd?

I'm using a Harris Bipod with a bean bag for the rear and would like to know who's using a monopod instead of a bean bag.
I've been looking at the Acc-Shot Monopod but don't know if it's really worth it. This would be for hunting and target practice up to 500-1,000 yrds.

    A few years back at the Harrisburg Sports Show I tried a Muley Pod. The concept was good with turnbuckle style inerds. But everytime I shot, the pod folded underneath itself. I'd rather use a rear bag myself.

    MonoPod

    I use and love it especially for a bench.

    Hi,
    I Used AccuShot Monopod, the low profile ones, up to 1050yards last week.
    Hit the target on first strike.
    Overall are great for hunting, up to 1k.
    As a review if I have to choose between, sandbag, accushot and freehand holding my choise willbe (for stability)
    1. sandbag
    2. accushot
    3 and the last options available freehand holding.

    I find they wobble to much for my personal liking. A rabbit ear rear bag filled with a light fill such as walnut polishing media of plastic filler works much better for me then a uni-pod rear.

    For me I'd use the bag first. I also use the new accushot monopod with the new locking mech and find it fairly good as well. Not as good as rabbit ears though.
