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.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.
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.

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?
P.S. Jeff, these better work! You know how much I like the Atlas
Which 2 lengths are you thinking? The tripod attachment sounds useful. Any thoughts on a time frame for the pan head.......I ordered two sets of legs. One for prone and one for sitting.

No not at all. I hunted with one all season. Plus carried the long legs in my pack in case I needed them. I never heard them once. Plus I just went to my shop as I have one on the bench. legs compressed shook it hard. No noise. slid legs out 1/2 way (I never carry it this way but wanted to give you a complete test) shook it hard and could hear a slight noise. I doubt normal foot travel would shake it any where near as hard as I did so I doubt you would even hear it.Does the sliding inner portion of the leg vibrate inside the outer portion of the leg? I've seen complaints about them "rattling like a paint can".
I dont have any with the LRKM on the long legs. But there are some here of my son shooting off them in his review,Hey Broz show us some pictures with you and the LRKM in the sitting postion with the long legs attached to the bipod. What do you use for rear support with this position?
yes I have some one order. We dont like doing "pre" orders unlit product is shipped to us. so that we dont have a bunch of people waiting for them. I should have them in about a week if you want send me a PM and ill keep you updated on when they will be here and ready to shipI don't see any of the bipods in the store, not even saying they are backordered. Will you still be carrying them?
There is some drama going on there, I guess Atlas doesnt like a competitor. but as of right now our bipods remain the same design. Ours should be here this weekIs there any updates on evolution bipods? I heard a rumor that they may be have an issue with patent infringement with atlas and they have to make some kind of alterations to there product. If that is the case I was wondering what might need to be altered?
I sold my first gen atlas to get a evolution, hopefully there isn't any major changes to the design. It looked like they finally had everything sorted out.
We have a shipment due in soon. Hopefully this week. Mod Evo is definitely back logged from orders. I will assume this is partly due to the needed design change to meet patent laws. But that is just an assumption.Are they really swamped or backordered on these bipods?
We have an order coming of the same design we have been selling. Yes the new design will attach to the rail like the old design. Once we have a new design in hand we will list all changes. But not sure when we will have the new design. I would say its mostly cosmetic. But maybe Daniel can offer more on this.Jeff what exactly is different to be honest I cant tell what has changed. I hope it still comes with the same quick detach for the rail.
My mistake then, I thought since our last order was placed for a while the one coming on our current order would be the origination design?They will be able to fold forward to lay next to the barrel. But not back towards the action.

I was referring to the new design, you are correct in our order will be the original design.My mistake then, I thought since our last order was placed for a while the one coming on our current order would be the origination design?
So I guess I was wrong.
You would need to disassemble and machine out parts in a mill.Longshot06 would you be able to post a couple pics of the back side of the bipod. Just want to see if I will be able to modify it to fold back all the way without butchering it.
I should have my new stock order next week! Shoot me a Pm and Ill get it worked out with you and have you oneCan I be put on a 'waiting list' of sorts for when you have these back in stock? If so, please let me know and I can get you whatever information would be required. Thank you! Scott
I now have two of these and run spikes on both. Have had it under a 31 lb 375 and it did great. It is my go to bipod for hunting. I carry the long legs in my pack in case I need to take a sitting shot. They are holding up great!! The Atlas's I have had are gone! The are not to my taste. The Harris's are collecting dust on top the safe. Yes, this is my favorite bipod to date.Broz,
I know it's been a while and another hunting season has went by since your review was done, Have your thoughts on this bipod changed at all since then? (You are one of the few guy's out there that I feel will tell the truth about a product and not just try to sell as many as you can no matter how it preforms.) I'm thinking about buying from you guy's even know I have 4 different bipod's now. Is it enough better than the Harris and atlas? Is it holding up under lots of hunting and shooting use?
