I am very interested in this bipod. I don't shoot competitively, i just hunt. I know the Hatch is a bit heavy but it appears to cover everything from sitting to prone. I don't see another pod that does that without adding pieces. How stable is this bipod? I am a bit leary that they could give you this much manipulation and not effect stability. I looked at the Cyke bipod but the height does not allow a sitting shot. It would be ideal to have one system for all of these positions. However, i dont want to spend $350-500 and figure out that i would have been better off to pick up a used Atlas for $200 and carry my steady stix for sitting shots.
