Thread: Best factory made shooting sticks

    Best factory made shooting sticks

    Hi All,

    I'm after a set of shooting sticks and have narrowed it down to either the Knobloch, Bogpod or Vanguard bipod models. I appreciate that many use the home made garden cane/ wooden versions but I'd appreciate peoples views on the 3 factory models above.

    How do people find the weight, ease of deployment, general feel of the sticks?

    Cheers!

    i have a set of vanguard scout sticks. i really like them light to carry easy to set up. the top is on a swivel which i really like only issue i have with them is they can be a noisey if you hit somthing by accident other than that great sticks.

    I have Knobloch and Vanguard tripods. Knobloch are well made and taller than the Vanguards but the swivel on the Vanguard gives them the edge, pity they are not a little bit taller. No problem if you are not 6feet plus.

    Great. One of the guys I know uses Knobloch sticks which he really likes. I like the idea of a swivel head and the height thing should not be a problem. Many thanks chaps.

    Same here, I have used the Stoney Point ones for 10+ years, easily the best on the market. The design of the top is far superior to any of the 'X' type ones simply because they don't have to have a piece of tape added as an afterthought to stop them being pushed open by the weight of the rifle or volume of the fore-end. I have a reserve set in the cupboard in case I ever lose them or run them over.

    Before parting with good money for factory sticks I would seriously consider a set of Limulus's hand made ones . .

    I use the Stoneypoint Explorer bipod sticks, Actually I use 2 sets.... they are fixed together at the bottom with rubber martingale stops to make quad sticks.

    Been usuing these for about 5 years, excellent quality but, not the cheapest.

    I have some Knobloc's and a set of old bushwear ones. I bought the Knobloc's as the bushwear bottom legs became pitted, my advice is buy Bushwear ones and replace them every 5+ years and you will have 25 years worth of sticks before you are up to the price of Knobloc's.

    Not saying the Knoblocs are bad because they are not, But i cant call the bushwear ones either for the price.
