    http://www.forestandhill.co.uk/epage...2/Products/005 Try this link Garry, just made my set today. They also do sets for tri and quad sticks, the plastic coated garden canes come in at about £2.80 each.. It makes a cracking adjustable rest which is very light, hard wearing and has no fiddly bit to break, cheap as chips.

    Hope this helps.

    I recommend the ones I make
    Quad sticks are incredibly stable to shoot from and fast to set once you get the hang of them.
    Below is a link to my website.

    Recently put some new sticks together using some garden canes and a bicycle inner tube. My purchased sticks' adjustable legs have gone pearshaped so I'm back using the garden canes which in my mind are far better and easier to carry.

    I leave the front left cane longer than the others so when I go to put the rifle on the sticks I just slide it down the longer cane and it sits exactly where it should in the front V, the back V just has a length of inner tube taped on there to rest the rifles butt in. I can also adjust, and swivel, the setup by using one hand on the longer cane.

    Cost about a £10 to make - the local cycle shop was happy to give me a couple of old inner tube for nothing so I will just replace the rubber as needed instead of drilling and bolting the canes together. Took about 20 minutes to put together.

    Hi Garry

    I bought a pair of sticks in Germany they are manufactured by LEKI, basically they are an adjustable hight bi pod set which has a cord attached with a rubber foot. you set them up like a normal pair of stick but stand on the rubber foot and push the sticks forward, the cord tightens giving you the benefit of a third leg. This is a very stable platform and I've hot many deer using them. They are called KNOBLOCH - JAGD, they are not the cheapest sticks around but are very light weight and can be reduced don to approx 24" up to about 5'. I would deffinatley try and track a set down.

    Cheers

    Hi Garry,

    I would recommend the 3 legged type.
    This is a version that Scott County are selling, thought utttings.com do them but couldn't find them on their website, should be able to get them cheaper on other shooting websites.
    http://www.scottcountry.co.uk/produc...ipods-4162.htm

    Another version is the Polecat standing rapid pivot tripod.
    Bit more expensive than a normal 3 legged bipod but it clicks onto your rifle which requires a special attachment fitted to ur stud on the forend.

    Regards
    Cyril

    Would those be the one's you bought off me, or should I say had my trouser's off for Tony.

    And also the one's that you said were ***** and made you look a wee bit silly when you tried to open them .

    Nice to see you've worked them out now after 6 month's.

    I was very impressed by the kit until I saw the price! You could buy a set of X3M1 bipod sticks for that price.
