StealthPodX
« on: August 15, 2018, 01:19:39 PM »
Anyone experience these versatile shooting sticks?
STEALTHPOD X(R) Complete System (2.9 LBS) > Buy STEALTHPOD X(R) Expedition Grade Patented Shooting Sticks

I'd like to avoid packing a tripod for my binos and I'm interested in a shooting stick as well to forgo a bipod. I like the dynamic use, but if they don't feel right I'm not going to like them.

DEEF, I've not used that particular brand but have used the Primos tripod with a trigger adjustment.

They seem similar with the Primos being a little heavier and maybe not quite as versatile but they are solid and work great for binos or rifle.

Similar to Russ, Ive also used the Primos version. Its very solid, but its fairly heavy.

@Colorado russ & COHunter14, thanks for your input.  I think I'm going to try the stealth pods since I need the hiking sticks.  I do like the trigger on the primos, they seem perfect for sighting.

I guess no one has tried these out; so I'll be the first:)  I went ahead and invested in these.  I've put about 20 miles of hunting on them and really like them.  I use Maven 12x50 binos from a Marsupial harness and use stealth Pods to stabilize for quick and stabviewing.  I can use one stick for this, combine them, or use them crossed like a bipod.  I can hike with them combined as well.  They are light and extremely durable.  I've used them as forward breaks on extremely steep grade.  They flex and don't break.

The sliding mechanism is extremely fluid and these are easy to use. 

I'm designer so I look for ways to improve ergonomics and max out objectives and think there are some room for exceptional refinements but that by no means takes away from a great design and functioning product.

I like that they are made in USA as well.  Alan put a lot of thought and work into this exceptional tool that does it all.

So far, I've mainly used them as bipods, but I have the third leg for tripod.  With good stability glassing as bipods, I don't have a need from the tripod.   I bought a Krammer design bino attachment which handily screws into the top of the stealth-stick.  Both sticks have 1/4-20 mounts so I mount my iphone holder on the other.  I can film and hike with it fairly fluidly. 

I'll be trying to use the top portion to hold my Kowa TSN-554 for scoping in the truck.  Those window mount scope bases scare methe weakest point of glass is on the edge so applying pressure seems like a bad idea. 

StealthPodX is a great tool and a great deal considering all the materials and design work into these.  I see that I'll be getting many years and hours of use out of them.
