    Good Luck! I still can't shoot off one? A rock ..hay bale..my pack..No problem.
    I think it's that loading thing? It seems to "bounce" more?

    Love my spartan javelin for above timberline. Also carry the spartan woodland tripod for optics and use the legs as hiking poles. If i need a higher set up than prone, i can use the woodland as a bipod or tripod and it attaches in less than a second. Nothing matches the weight and versatility of this combo. also love my atlas, but now use it almost exclusively in matches.

    I should've figured Leupold would just have rebadged.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you are describing a B-square. I installed a 1/2"X1/2" threaded stud in front of the sling stud on some of my rifles. The nut is about 1" diameter and 1/4" thick. It swivels and rocks.

    Not finding much on the B Square. Everywhere I checked it's out of stock, haven't found any reviews or specs (material, weight etc).

    I have the javelin ,rugged ridge, Harris and the mod Evolution. and have used a hatch. I prefer the javelin for my light rifles. its quick to deploy easy to leave in pocket and light. the mount is small and barely noticeable. but I wouldn't leave it on to pack around. I dont trust the magnets that much. the harris was my first bipod and liked it but believe a lot of these others are a bit better in multiple ways(weight,versatility,bulk,noisy). if I wanted it to be a sitting type bipod I would get the hatch or Rugged ridge with extensions. the evo offers extensions but have not used them yet. my evo is new to me and haven't used it yet. it feels solid and tight. Broz talks highly of this bipod. my rugged ridge is very solid, quiet fairly compact and offers extensions. for my heavier rifles it's been my choice.

    Thanks a bunch guys.
    Looks like I've got 3 good options. Time to do some research.
    If anyone has any more info on the ones listed (or other options) good or bad I would love to hear them.
    I think at this point it's down to
    Rugged Ridge EOL
    Modular Evolution
    Hatch Outwest.

    The rugged ridge carbon bipod is not very good there are no set adjustments you unscrew the leg and it slides in and out hard to get where you want Fast a friend has one I did not like it you need an ATLAS with quick detach only $300 to $320 and they are as good as it gets

    Are the feet on the RR bipod Atlas compatible?

    How do the extensions work? You have screw them in don’t you? Or is like the harris that extends out?

    I am on the same search as you for use on a new rifle. I don`t know much about them but I have been looking at Snipe Pods by Kramer designs, I like the way they attach, & can be moved from rifle to rifle. I`d be interested in reviews from anyone that has used them

    One reason I want a quick detachable bipod is I am tired of my current one digging into my shoulder when I carry the rifle. That is another reason I was hoping to find a very slim mount/quick detach mount.
    Anyone have suggestions for this problem? Carrying withthe sling is muzzle down does not appeal to me.

    They are not as good as it gets for hunting. Gaming...possibility, bench, maybe, otherwise there are plenty of solutions that fit better.
