Moonlight, I purchased an earlier version of the UTG:

Quite frankly, I prefer it’s simplicity to the more complex Atlas bipod.  It’s lightweight, solid, tight, and snaps up/down smartly.  Best of all, it’s tiny when collapsed.

Cost not being considered, the UTG fits my shooting needs better than the Atlas.  The Atlas has too many adjustments for my taste and shooting style.  I cannot remember a time when I needed to adjust my bipod all the directions the Atlas offers…perhaps I’m missing something here?

Yes…I’ve used the Atlas bipod.  I didn’t keep it for the above reasons.  I don’t see the value for five times the cost of the UTG.

It would be interesting to hear from Atlas owners as to how many features of the Atlas they actually use, and under what situations.  

It may convince some forum members to purchase one, and perhaps others to put that extra money in gear more suited to their style of shooting.
