It sounds like you have experience with multiple bipods. I appreciate your great reviews.
If your dad was in the market for a bipod which one would you tell him to get? You have this bipod and the new bipod from gunwerks sitting on a table. Pick one. What would you pick? Sorry I know these questions aren’t easy but most of us will never be able to compare these side by side. Thanks

I had somewhat the same problem as you. When I made the decision, the Gunwerks had not yet been released or really talked about. My father wanted the ability to shoot seated/kneeling, so I got him the Ckye double pull light weight based on some suggestions on this forum. Looking at FURMAN's video just now I have a slightly different outlook especially taking into account my father's shooting ability.

If the shooter is able to easily get into prone, I'd go Gunwerks. I'd do the same if the shooter doesn't shoot long range often because of the possibility of induced recoil technique "fliers" FURMAM speaks of in the video above.

If some positions are difficult for the shooter to get into and shoot from, I would get the CKYE pod and stress practice.

I prefer the GW over the MDT but it really needs spiked feet which are supposed to be on the way. I think if you can not get prone you really need to invest in a good tripod setup and a stock with an arca rail and practice.

Is the the original or the gen2 version of this bipod. Also, maybe I am missing it in on the first pass on the MDT site, but what is the difference between single/double/triple pull variants of the Cyke pods? I have been scrutinizing your reviews to make a more informed decision between this and the GW. Thanks.

The number of pulls on the MDT is simply the number of sections on the legs. More pulls, more height. The higher off the ground you get the less stable. But that height issue is less relevant with pea shooters as opposed to magnums.

Can't believed I missed that obvious answer. Thanks for the quick reply.
