I ordered one of these. I had been looking for a perfect portable shooting system that can be used for both extreme long range shooting and hunting as well. I think I found it.

Very nice,
You couldn't ask for anything more versatile.

John, are your neighbors giving you a bad time?

Looks like a pretty solid tripod.

Yup, you can pretty much mount anything on it and at 3.5 lbs, you can carry it on your back pack. I ordered a couple of Picatinny attachment for 6 of my rifles so that I don't need to keep moving things around. I hope it's strong enough to handle the recoil of my 338 Lapua.

Here's some more review.

I'm really impressed with the quality of this tripod. I can't wait taking it to the range to try it out.

Rommel
Have you used it yet? I'd like to know if you think it has an adverse effect on accuracy compared to bags.

Thanks
Chuck

Yes, I tried it yesterday at the range shooting at 100 meters with my 338 Lapua Ackley. I tried both shooting prone and seating position. No change in impact whatsoever. The tripod is versatile enough to used for long range shooting and hunting but not for fast action predator hunting, although with practice you might be able to use it.
