I would go with one nice bipod with quick release than 2 mediocre bipods. We can only shoot one rifle at a time anyway and my Atlas Cal bipod comes off when the rifle goes in the bag due to the width anyway.

I’ve just come to the same conclusion. Was planning on getting two magpul bipods for a centerfire and rimfire trainer. But at that point may as well get an atlas cal to use on both. Made the idea of dropping so much on a bipod much easier to swallow!

    I would suggest getting at least two good bipods. I bring two rifles when I shoot especially in the summer, when one gets hot
    I go to the second one.

    One time I forgot the second bipod and had to switch between two rifles, while not catastrophic it was a pain in the ass
    readjusting the clamp for the different width pic rails.

    I agree about one nice one rather than multiple poor ones. That said I like to have multiple guns out and shootable at once so friends, wife, etc can use them. So I do some switching but have enough bipod to have 3 going play once. I currently have a tbac on the ax, atlas on the 6.5 gas gun, and magpul on a 223 gas gun. I need at least one more. Thinking about another tbac or maybe an elite iron.

    I agree. That being said, my now “mediocre bipod” is my Atlas PRS. I prefer my Accu-Tac and switch it around usually as I don’t need multiple guns at once without time to adjust the QD. And yes, depending on rail, you may have to adjust each time which is a little pain in the ass.
