Thread: Telescopic bipod

    Telescopic bipod

    Hi guys - I need some tips on a recommended brand of telescoping bipod shooting sticks.
    I don't like the tripod/quad jobbies and the homemade sets cannot be taken abroad as easily.

    Thanks in advance.

    There was a review of sticks on this thread: http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...light=knobloch

    I use the Knobloch telescopic bipod and have done for the last 10 years. The downside is that they are not cheap: http://www.greenacresupplies.co.uk/Knobloch_Bi_Pod.htm. I have no idea why they are so expensive, but if worked out in price per stalk they are still pennies

    There are more versions on the market now like Stoney Point and X3Mi, which you can find through Google. Others use them very effectively.

    Stalking Gear UK (ad/link at the top of the page, or http://www.edgecom.de/index.php?main...roducts_id=138) seem to have the Knobloch tripod at 52.22. Guess you don't have to use/could remove the third leg?

    Is there anything wrong with Bushwear sticks?

    About 30, and in realtree if your that way inclined

    Like with most things, you get what you pay for. In my opinion, if you are on a tight budget then get two hazel sticks/dowels/garden canes etc and a bit of inner tube. If you what something of a professional quality get the Stoney Point, don't really see where the mid-range stuff really fits in. JC

    I use Hazel or B&Q. Why spend 60 or more on sticks? I want to know because if the difference is that much I might change.

    Sam i use the Stoney point bipod and they do just make life much easier they're quick and easy to adjust for shots from sitting to standing also if i want to shoot freehand i can put them right down and slot through one of my belt loops so they hang down my leg out the way,i even use them with my .17hmr now for rabbits in preference to my harris bipod i just wouldn't be with out them now.Make a good walking stick too strong and light but if you get some go for the three section legs as they are more versatile.
