Accu-Shot vs RedMan 'style' bag

What are some of your thoughts on the above being used in Hunting and shooting applications? Taking out the price differece of $38 (accu-shot is more) i would think the extra stability of the pod would only be of help in all conditions. Thoughts of having to pull out a bag in a hunting situation vs adjusting the height of something that is already is attached to the stock the later would be more beneficial.

What are some of the pro's/con's that you've experienced?


Thanks.
jeff

I have never used the Accu- Shot but I sure like my Red Man bag. My personal opinion is that a bag is very versatile, very fast to adjust, you can clip it on your pack, belt loop, etc. and it really takes very little time to set up. Just my thoughts, there are others with much more experience.

Re: Accu-Shot vs RedMan 'style' bag

I've never owned an Accu-Shot but tried one on another guy's gun and did not like it. I have had the RedMan bag for several years now and love it. I use a small aluminum carabiner and just clip it on my belt or pack. Works slick and you can use it laying down or on end and it has enough squish that it's just a slick little piece of equipment that helps a lot when setting up for the long shot.

Another question, if I may?
What are the advantages over a Red Man Pillow over shooting off a backpack?

We are talking about a rear bag under the butt end of the stock, the red man bag is small and convenient. I have used my pack for a front rest and on occasion as a rear rest while shooting down hill, but it wouldn't be my choice in a ideal situation.

Re: Accu-Shot vs RedMan 'style' bag

Right. I hike with collapsable trekking poles.

I X them up at what ever height I need. I stab them into the ground and secure them with a Voile' ski strap for a front rest. If I have time and need, I set up my daypack as a rear rest.

Or I pull out a coil of rope. I carry 2 static ropes 11mm x 20m. long and 1 dynamic rope 10mm. 30m. long for hanging quarters and a 5mm X 30m. cord w/ throw bag.

All of the above I have used in rests of one kind or another.
