 Hello everyone. I have came across this brand of bipods called Atlas. They are pretty expensive but may be worth the money. Does anyone here have any experience with the product and the company of the product. I see where Gunwerks is a dealer for them and I have seen them in their shows. thanks for the comments

Very well thought of over here in the F-Class community

I use an Atlas V8 on an AR varmint rifle I built. It's slow to deploy, but it's the next best thing to a rest. Solid piece of gear in my opinion.

That's what a lot of the guys who shoot F-Class say

 I have a few Atlas and a few Harris, both have strengths and weaknesses.

The Atlas is very well built.  It is slow to deploy and slow to adjust leg height.
The Harris deploys quickly, folds up quickly, legs deploy quickly, but I've had one with a pod-loc sheer off the screw holding it to the base - and it happened at a bad time.

If I think I'll need my gun quickly, It usually wears a Harris.  If I know it will be a static position and the gun will remain deployed, it gets an Atlas.

Both are good at one thing and okay at the other.  It all depends which one thing you are doing with it.

And Atlas is much more expensive.

There is some wisdom in these words...

I got rid of all my Harris bipods and mostly use Atlas now.  I am also experimenting with some less stable, but very quick ultralight options.

If you're getting it for hunting get the Harris, it's fast to setup.
