Don't buy an Atlas unless you plan on tossing out all your Harris pods!

I bought my first Atlas bipod last year just to "check it out"... I still had harris pods on my secondary sticks. Yeah well after shooting on it for a year, I change rifles to an AICS setup with my old harris bipod, thinking "no prob" I can shoot with either... damn I was wrong and it cost me another $300 bucks!

So I ordered the new V8 with the AI spigot, can't wait to use it. Can't shoot with the old harris anymore.

pic of my first Atlas that caused me all this woe:

What have I become?

    Re: Danger Atlas Bipods are sinister!

    Got my first one in yesterday, with AI spigot. I have to say, I do like it! It's a v7, I picked it up because it was available, but I don't think I'm going to bother to "upgrade" to the v8, as I don't think I'm missing out on anything.

    Fill me in if I am though!

    Here's the thing about my experience with the Atlas, when I first tried it I wasn't sure that it lived up to all the hype. I thought it was a decent bipod but the price was high. Once you use it for a while, you start to rely on the pan and tilt it affords the shooter. You begin to smoothly squire movers or targets at different distances that the harris stutters on. I'm sold now.

    I hear the Feds are looking at Kasey for pushing this controlled substance on us all!!!

    If I had the funds, I would replace my Harris bipods with the Atlas in a heartbeat, but alas...the funds aren't there for bipods.

    Well it seems USPS are trying to stop the addiction becoming worldwide.

    My bipods was shipped June 17th by USPS and has still not managed to find it's way accross the big pond.

    Kasey is going to send out a replacement but has to wait for parts.

    Still will be my Christmas present to myself

    WHY did you have to post this. I really could have spent the money on something else. Now I seem forced to get one of these critters in my hand. How do you sleep at night?

    I just picked my wife up from the airport this morning as she flew in from the States--with my new atlas v8 bipod -hell this thing looks good, sadly at the time when the wife was there Kasey had run out of AI spigots so I have to wait until he sends one over to NZ .Big thanks Kasey for getting it to Maryland before the missus returned !!

    Can you guys tell me why you prefer the Atlas over the Harris? What does it do better? What does it do worse? One problem I have heard with the Atlas was it rattles. I'm new to all of this precision rifle stuff so I'm still learning.

    The Atlas gives you yaw rotation and variable angle leg positions (fore and aft)....and just wait 'till you try one with spikes....
