    Bipod & Monopod All in One - Anyone know of any??

    I do like the idea of a bipod that can also be used as a monopod, hence I was just wondering if anyone knew of any similar (better?) type designs/products?

    Anyone had any experience of these?? They look good, although one review reckons they are noisey unless extended...maybe a one off though.

    Have you checked out this thread: http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...light=knobloch

    Stoney Point and Knobloch make the extending bipod sticks, but there's also strong support for garden canes.

    Personally I use the Knobloch sticks, which have served me well for the last 10 years.

    Yes I had read that, but am still undecided as I'm more interested in a monopod I think. I've always found bipod sticks (and heaven forbid further legs!) a little cumbersome...but they are handy in certain circumstances. Plus a monopod that doesn't extend can be cumbersome...hence my latest quest I guess!!

    In that case you could look at one of these: http://www.fotosense.co.uk/manfrotto...c-monopod.html or any other monopod and then get one of these to go on top: http://www.centermassinc.com/638292.html

    Personally I'd stick with the bipod sticks

    Oly the stoney point bipod can just as easily be used as a monopod,i can easily spread the legs with one hand when sneaking up on deer and put the legs out in front of me and stand up nice and slow with the rifle already rested in position,works a treat,i find them very versatile in all sorts of situations,great for sitting shots too.

    I use a X3M1 telescopic bi-leg stick thingy. Got it/them from the Great Litts sell off for a tenner. I used to have a really nice shepards crook but it got nicked out of my truck, along with coat, bino's etc.etc. I like the two legged sticks, they telesope down to fit in the boot of the car and are light but fairly rigid.

    There are these if money is no object, or you could make your own similar ones;
