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.
