    What do you guys use, how do you use them and what are the heights that you use them at?

    Look on line at a field target match, or better yet attend a shoot.  You will see a bunch of shooting sticks and many different kinds.  They are easy to make from a couple 4 ft. wooden rods square or round about 3/4 in diameter, a 3/16" bolt and nut and a couple washers.  Drill a 3/16" hole about 10 " from one end of the rods, insert bolt through one rod, place a couple washers, then go through other rod.  Put nut and washer on bolt to hold it together.  You can adjust height of sticks by spreading them a little or a lot.  Sitting on a bucket and shooting from sticks is very accurate shooting in seasoned hands.

    I've used homemade sticks for years. Then a relative left a pair of BogPod adjustable sticks at my place and I find myself using them a lot. I set them at 34" to the bottom of the cradle which works well for kneeling shots. I raise them all the way up for lawn chair shots and lower them a bit for seated shots.

    Here's a pic of my homemade sticks-I have them in a few different lengths for different types of shooting. The adjustable bogpod sticks are way nicer since one pair will do for a variety of situations. If I were buying a pair of adjustable sticks I think I'd go for the lever lock style rather than the screw-type, just my preference.

    Primos Trigger Stix. Pricey, but worth it.

    John I already have the gen 2 primos and fully extended they're bout 5 feet. But when purchased by my Old lady they said 21"-60 something. But they're not close to 21" collapsed. So how does one know what their true measurements are?

    I love my 60” Primos bipod. But you are right, they work perfect fully extended or even lower while sitting in a chair or on a log. But if you are sitting on the ground they are too tall. If you try to split the legs far enough to be low, they wash out. They make 3 sizes, but the tall ones are my favorite.

    Do y’all prefer mono, bi or tri sticks? Is there an advantage of one over the other besides weight?

    The only problem I have with my sticks is keeping ahold of them when cocking/reloading.   It can be a bit awkward.

      Mono, and I have an unorthodox way of using mine. Simple, very lightweight, effective, can quickly change angle of shooting without adjusting pole length.

    And I have a monopod, but as I saw and the clip is getting a "shaking" that prevents the exact shot. Even the more I aim at, the more they shake.
