    Review of the NEW Modular Evolution Bipod

    In this thread we can discuss this review and ask questions about the new Modular Evolution Bipod by Daniel Brozovich aka "Longshot06"

    Go HERE to read the review and see some video.

    There's a lot of drama out there surrounding this bipod. Almost everyone that has one has had the legs break on them, and early on, they had to pay for new ones. The owner is the same guy that ripped a bunch of people off on a Sniper's Hide rifle build several years ago as well. I'm not saying it's not a decent product, just that the owner has a lot of work to do to gain any kind of reputation back. For my money, I'll stick with Atlas and Harris.

    The owner did acknowledge the leg problem, and sent us free updated replacements. He also told me he had not had any break since the update. He sent us the replacements right away, and no charge. So that is the only first hand info we have to go on about the company, and we were not aware of any past issues. LongShot06 has had this biopd for quite some time and has had it on a few different rifles. All has been good. I have been a user of the Harris for years, I have tried the first gen Atlas and the newer Atlas. They just don't work well for my needs. Many of my shots are up hill with legs extended. The Atlas gets too weak for these shot for my taste. So much leg flex you can not even feel a preload. I have only shot the Modular Evolution a few times but it seemed much stronger to me. In the video below I was shooting a 338 Terminator suppressed. I shot a .25 moa 3 shot group. I was impressed enough with this product I called and ordered a bipod, two sets of legs, tripod adapter, and spikes. I want to hunt with one more this year to see how it is in all conditions. So time will tell.

    The only Atlas I'll use is the PSR model, which has stronger leg bosses and non-spinning legs. I used it for the first time at the Sniper's Hide Cup and combined with some carbon fiber extensions, it greatly contributed to my 2nd place finish behind Nick. Although I have always used the Harris, this thing is growing on me and I much prefer picatinny mounts to bipod studs.

    Well I will research this "PRS" model. I need to be sure the last one I used was this type. Even if the legs are stronger though, I still don't think I could give up the pod lock like Harris and the Modular Evolution for that thing Atlas has. That is unless Atlas has changed that to with this PRS model.

    There are some things I noticed on the Evo that I liked over the Atlas. I didn't feel it was professional to directly call out another manufacturer in the official review, but one I'll note here is the pod lock on the atlas is less than ideal to lock with just your thumb, I like the metal lever they used on the Evo rather than a knob.

    As for any bad blood that might linger around the manufacturer, I don't know anything about this and can't speak to it and had not heard of it until now. All I can speak to is what I experienced. Modular Evolution Bipod's have been great to work with.

    Hi,
    Most of my rifles are heavy and all are wildcats. I have a new build that is almost complete and need another bipod (too lazy to take one off).

    New custom rifle is a little guy 6.5ss but rifle is heavy I think. It should come in around 15lbs.

    Want to try an EVO, what size legs do you guys reccomend? Also, do they sell the rail to mount on stock?

    Thanks,

    Ray

    P.S. Jeff, these better work! You know how much I like the Atlas

    I ordered two sets of legs. One for prone and one for sitting. The beauty of this set up is you can stick the extra legs in your pack and never know it as they are light. Mine are going in the water bladder pouch. Then change them in a snap if needed. May as well get the tripod mount too. And yes they sell the rails.

    I'll be interested to see long term wear data on these by the hunting crowd. Besides the earlier generations having problems with legs breaking, I have seen pictures of bipods showing premature wear where the legs pivot. The design itself takes a lot of the features I like about the Harris and the Atlas and mates them together but seeing how many issues the early generations had it has made me real hesitant to want to get into one just yet.
