As we all know, the CKYE POD Tripple Pull legs have wider diameter, hence they are not compatible with Atlas feet like the original CKYE POD.

I am not aware of any existing options for replacing the spiked feet of the Tripple Pull, if someone wants to shoot from sliding surfaces like smooth concrete, car hoods, wooden surfaces, or the calmness of the WC floor :cool:

I stumbled upon these rubber balls, which were made for attaching to the Helinox camping chairs:

https://helinox.com/collections/stability/products/vibram-ball-feet-set?variant=16668141224006

These are made to be put onto the feet of the chairs in order to add stability and to avoid sinking of the legs in softer grounds - mud, sand and snow..

It turns out that these rubber balls have the exact inner hole that would fit on to the CKYE POD Tripple legs after removing of the spikes.

The result is this:

These come in different colors, but are sold in sets of four. So, the only usable option would be to buy two CKYE POD's Tripple Pull's, so that you can make the most of these rubber shoes...;)

The actual grip for smooth surfaces is very, very good.
Also, I presume that these Vibrams would outperform the original spikes when it comes down to deep mud, snow, sand, etc.

I hope that this info would prove to be useful to someone here...

    What is the inner diameter, might be to grab some for my Accutac bipod?

    The inner diameter of the rubber ball is around 21.5 mm. Being rubber, it can stretch a bit...

    The outer diameter of the CKYE-POD Tripple Pull leg is around 22.2 mm.

    OP, this is a brilliant idea. I ordered a set of those rubber balls and now have a different foot option for the bipod. They also work great for their intended purpose on my Helinox chair. Thanks for sharing the tip.
