Good Morning all,
(Note: Mods if and when I decided to import / sell these I will buy a trade membership etc)
Over the last few weeks I have been looking and trying at new set of shooting sticks. These new sticks are different to what we have on the market at the moment as these are a body mounted stick. Some of you might have seen a body mounted set at the British shooting show (vest mounted) but may have been put off by the price (£65 for the basic set)
Now these sticks are allot lighter, more versatile and cheaper. Below are some videos showing there uses. They can be used on and off the body.
Now don’t get me wrong they are not as stable as a set of quad sticks but once you get use to using them you will love them. I find they are just as good as my bipod sticks but with more uses.
The video (and product) is American so some of it may not be of use but there are some main advantages. I for one love the over the shoulder carry, as it is so easy and quick to swing the gun round into the shooting position. I find this great when out with night with the night vision as I don’t have to keep stopping to set my sticks up to scan the fields for rabbits etc.
The sticks also work well off the body as big tripods but weigh nothing like and can even be used in the prone position.
Currently these are available to buy but you have to ship from the US (about 2 weeks) I am in talks with the manufacture to bring these to the UK in bulk to then pass a small cost saving on to the UK shooter but also a quicker delivery time.
Currently these can be bought for about £36 (depending on the dollar rate) Inc postage to the UK.
I’m currently looking at putting an order in for 50 sets which would work out to about £30 each in postage to the UK shooter.
So what I’m looking for is any comments from you guys to if you would use these or not and if I was to place an order who would be interested?
Please feel free to ask any questions and if you are nearby to Nottingham feel free to pop over and try my set out etc.
