    I’ve got a few pairs of various brands but I won’t part with them sorry. However you can find them on aliexpress by searching ‘shooting sticks’ - Have got some of the vector optics ones, and they seem good enough. Just the alloy can be a little soft in the joins, so take care to get them lined up right without trying to force them, and you should be sweet

    Mine are really all the same base design, not far off identical. Sitting/kneeling height, tent-pole style collapsible legs, with belt holster. If rabbit or roo shooting I carry them assembled, or clip the sternum strap of my backpack through them, so they’re ready to go right away.

    One of them - the rubber V that forms the rifle rest has open ends so it can slide on the pole. Don’t like that as much as the enclosed ends, as you really only need to adjust the legs to change angle, and the rubber tends to slip on the pole right when you don’t want it to. Oo-er.

    Would post some pics, but seem to be stuck on the mobile layout of the forum right now, and can’t switch back to desktop version..

    Go to the bottom left of the page and choose Shiny Green
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    @scottrods, couldn't find any specs for them on Aliexpress. Can you tell us the height they extend to?

    Cheers
