Thread: Tri-pod - Knobloch or bog-pod.

  1. #1

    Tri-pod - Knobloch or bog-pod.

    I'm considering buying a tripod, and have narrowed the choice down to the above. Knobloch's are around £180, and Bogpod's £130 (both expensive, but I hope worth it). Any views on ease of use and durability would be appreciated.

    2nd-hand camera tripod + section of 4" dia pvc pipe/guttering + dense closed cell foam + can of matte spray paint = PROFIT



    Google "Sniper Saddle" for plans. Not even an hours work to modify the pipe to fit the tripod & glue the foam on, etc.

    Save your money. These are as steady and a lot cheaper

    For Sale: Twin Sticks

    (I have BogPod and Stoney Point Tripods)

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Knob lock for me.... I've used both extensively, and found Bog Pod to be too noisy, much as I liked the swivel feature.

    Two different beasts as alluded to above and although the slew & cant feature of the Bog Pod is a nice feature they lack, perhaps understandably, the build quality of German offering.

    Another thing against the BP is the yoke as supplied is too hard and narrow to permit easy install of additional leather or foam padding.

    If going for the Knobloch save the extra and get the one with quick release levers.
