This bipod of­fers tra­verse and cant fea­tures for $100 to $200 less than the other bipods that have both fea­tures, mak­ing it a good buy. It’s a spring-loaded, for­ward-clos­ing, light­weight bipod. It at­taches via sling swivel, which I found to be a lit­tle dif­fi­cult due to the free-float­ing at­tach­ment points be­ing a lit­tle hard to guide through the at­tach­ment slot. Once at­tached, even when “cranked” down, there was still a fair amount of move­ment in the con­nec­tion. I also had to put a lot of ten­sion on the cant lever to stop any move­ment. There is no lever to lock the tra­verse fea­ture in place. Open­ing the legs is done man­u­ally with a pull to lock open, but they are spring loaded in the open po­si­tion— press the fric­tion lock, and they snap closed. There is also a pre­ci­sion lock fea­ture to open each leg to any length.
