In the market for upgrading my Harris this year.

I know things have moved on a bit in bipods and wondering whats new that people are using?

I want something light, compact with a wide stance and plenty of movent. Mostly hunting and mid range target use. 

Atlas seam to tick all the boxes still and I know are highly recommend.

Teir-One have a new tactical bipod that looks good. Though the spread looks quite narrow which is what puts me off the likes of Sparten.

Anyone using Teir-One, how do you get on with them?

What else are people using?

Owned a couple of Harris, an Atlas and now have a Fortmeier.

I felt the Harris was better than the Atlas - the legs on the Atlas had too much flex when fully extended. Personally, I don't think the Atlas is worth the money.

The Fortmeier (mine is for a picatinny mount at the 12 o'clock position) is nice and wide, very stable and seriously over built - no flex or danger of snapping anything. It's a simple design too.

If I didn't go for the Fortmeier, I would have chosen the Accutac BR4. Way better than aN Atlas.

Thanks,

I hadn't realized there was.so much flex in an Atlas.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Fortmeirer in the flesh but they do look a bit bulky for my needs.

The Accu Tac is one I'm definitely looking at as it seam to fit the brief.

Just so many models to choose,

I have got an atlas psr  and it is extremely rigid and very versatile. It was an expensive layout but you don't get any of the hop that you get with a Harris. I was torn between that and the Phoenix but the Phoenix didn't have any pan, only cant adjustment.  The atlas has both pan and cant so you can move onto your target without loading one side like your Harris and resulting in pulling the shot. 

Richard fittings did a YouTube round up of several bipods on sharpshooting uk. That might be worth a look.

The Fortmeirer/Phoenix is not really bulky and although it's an outstanding bipod (i have one), it's no lightweight.
