Quad sticks all day long for me, 4x B&Q sticks absolutely solid, no rear stock left floating when taking a shot, light as a feather, cheap as chips... when you want to move lift a leg slightly and swivel round... a lot of people are fans of the primos, not for me personally, but if it works, why change.

Bang on! I've used a standard two stick setup, Primos tripod triggerstick and finally homemade quadsticks the same as you. The quadsticks cost about 15 quid to make and by far the best setup.

There's a lot of kit out there designs to catch hunters not game imo.

Quads for me , I did have a set of the all singing and dancing alloy ones which were superb and the best I’ve ever used , unfortunately they are not truck proof and now use a home made set till I have s rush of blood to my small brain and buy another set of alloys ..

Daft as it sounds, has anyone else on here used a mono stick ? I'll admit to a triple but also have a mono when in woodland. All it really does is give you a steady hand against a tree or over a hedge etc etc. If you feel that it would be any good I'll send one. Green as well. One really steady owner and have as seen. Only a thought. Jok.

That's a really kind offer Jok. :thumbs: I haven't even had the chance to use my tripod yet though.

When I first started rifle shooting that’s really all we used , then on to a pair and a few years later quads ...what’s next I wonder ..

I’ve already seen the five legged set so another 3 won’t be far away , is it going to be a pop up set a bit like the pop up tents that folds down and fits in your pocket .? This time next year we’ll be millionaires ...:rofl:

The way my shaking is going Walshie, you had better add an extra two legs for me and make it a round 10. I'll bl**dy need them soon. :cray:

You really should try the quads Tremo. They're as cheap as chips and as stable as you want them. A few years ago I added an extra stick and if you have the time you can get em so you just have to pull the trigger. My extra leg is adjustable. I don't have to use it but for longer targets I extend the back leg with the rifle pointed high, then lowering the rifle to the target I put slight pressure on the back leg with my knee. Takes longer to tell than to do. I'm not kidding when I say if I couldn't have my quads I'd hardly go shooting at all. I suspect a lot of people that are using one, two, and three legged versions sometimes have to lean on something occasionally but I can stand in the middle of a field and as already been said, lift one leg with the extra stick closed and scan 360degrees. Once target acquired I line up extend the back leg and bang.

I left out the bit about not having to put the rifle down to work on it, reload, make a cuppa etc

I'll have to give them a go one day mate. :thumbs:

It looks as though you really have it suss'd there. The bunnies don't look that happy with your equipment though!! :laugh: . Obviously they work well for you mate. Good stuff.
