    Bipod Buddy

    I'll have the owner ship one to you and then you can tell him what you think.

    Thanks for the offer but I will let one of the members that shoot a lot more than I do try it out. Most of my shooting is working loads up for hunting.

    I use a bipod exclusively while shooting these days. I would like to test this product out.

    Pretty much all I shoot is prone with a bipod. Looks like it would be a nice packable solution. Would love to try it out.

    As stated above, it looks to be very packable, I would like to get one out on the ranch in less than favorable terrain & see how it stacks up.

    Put me down for one.

    WHOOPS, good response. I should have said I think he wants to provide ONE unit.

    If so, I'll pick mostly at random from those who seem most qualified.

    Fair enough, thanks for the clarification.

    I'm a bit of a fool for gadgets, and I'd love to test it. However, someone else would likely give a more timely, insightful evaluation. Posted just to follow, and let manufacturer know there is interest.

    Len, thanks for the post, and I am glad to hear there is some interest.

    I have been playin with all the models and they work really well. I am gearing up for a production run, and only have limited initial samples from the first run of prototypes. I have sent one to Len, and Shawn Carlock, but would still like some feedback from a couple more experianced shooters. At this point I can't afford to send but a couple of them out, but when final products are ready in the next 6-8 weeks I will offer the members on this forum a good discount.

    If someone is seriously interested, and could provide me an honest and candid review (good, bad, or ugly), post here, and If Len wants to select a couple of qualified individuals I would be happy to send them one.

    Len, Thanks for the oppertunity to share the idea and product with the members here!

    Neat Idea! First glance looks to have some great potential. Light, compact, very adjustable. My only concern is if it will be stable enough for the long pokes. But, to 6 or 700 yds it might just be the ticket. I will watch and see what some of the users say and I am especially interested in stability past 1000.

    Thanks

    Jeff

    Hi Len,

    I can review the product and use that review for this site and mine. The owner would get twice the exposure.

    I would give it an honest try and report back - good, bad or ugly. About 2 days on a prairie dog town here in Montana should get you about 500 rounds worth of feed back.

    Just out of curiosity - are they available for purchase as of yet and have you put a price tag on them.
