Competition / Re: Hog Saddle Needs Tripod

This is a hidden jewel. I have and use this system. It is everything it is advertised to be. Watch the YouTube video attached. I suspended my 180 pound grandson from this tripod last summer to test its strength - it passed with flying colors.

I don’t think the 8 week waiting period applys anymore but call to find out. I got mine in 4 days from order.

That tripod seems pretty good, I wish the transition to prone did not take a small allen key, other than that its nice.

Thanks for the links. Unfortunately ITAR won’t let me buy these here in Canada privately. I can’t believe we have to pay double the USA prices. Drives me to drink.

Cronus is out of my budget up here unfortunately.  Ares BTR is just under $1400, Midas Tac is  $1000. I heard that the turrets are good on these two as well. Tibo Rex, reviews are good, at least so far. I know the first versions had poor feeling clicks, but they are improved.
Steamer the Midas BTR is slightly different I think.

These seem interesting. Has anyone used these yet? Specifically the Ares BTR, and the Midas Tac version.
