Thread: High seats which one..

  1. #1

    High seats which one..

    Hi all,
    I am looking to buy my first highseat
    there seem to be quite a few to chose from
    Bushwear do a very handy alloy folding one for £199.99
    Swillington shooting also do a budget steel for only£99.98
    what dos everyone use, did you make your own!
    any feed back will help me decide!

    Cheers Tikka595

    Just bought a Seeland Hercules. Apparently like the Bushwear one but a bit more robust. Did think of the budget steel one but was told the shooting rail is a bit low so might need a bit of adjusting (my welding skills are pretty non-existant so gave it a miss - also my needs at the moment are for a portable)

    PD highseats. Fully galvanised and reasonably priced.

    I have yet to find a better highseat, and Paul lives in Abingdon, just down the road from you. He will make his standard ones or bespoke ones to your own design. He makes them for a lot of estates and organisations you will have heard of.

    I started off buying a cheap one from Sportsman GC for just less than a £100, which was a heap of rubbish. Then i bough a supposed double highseat from one of the more well known makers, needless to say it did not mean two robust stalkers in cold weather gear, I just about fitted in there with my daughter in summer. So I had a look at other designs and saw the PD ones. I have not seen another make to make me regret my puchases yet!

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    Another vote for Mereside. Wayne dropped off 2 freestanding doubles for me earlier this year and they are true double seats made with quality steel that will last a lifetime...

    No criticism here, just an honest question, are Mereside's seats galvanised?
