    What makes it better than the Javelin and worth $650?

    All I can see is canting legs? Or am I missing something?

    I had both and ended up selling the javelin.
    For me having the fold up legs was the winner
    The backlanz is lighter and better movement.
    If your used to a Harris buy the backlanz
    And it’s Nz made

    If you want light - Neopod bipod, carbon fibre stuff. Price is up there though - lighter than Backlanz but each has its pros & cons.

    The neopod is not really carbon fibre, itís a cast plastic material. Pretty flimsy and fragile.

    Iíve had my backlanz for sometime now and have just brought a rifle with a javelin bipod. Compared to the backlanz itís pretty limited on adjustment just height some pan and tilt. I canít see myself using it the backlanz beats it hands down and its kiwi made

    Had the neopod. Agree plastic and flimsy. Javelin is good but keen to try the kiwi made one now.

    Quote from the Neopod manufacture in Norway - It is made from carbon fibre reinforced PEEK polymer. How many bipods do you need to go through before you think you have the right one - sounds an expensive process? Just trying to figure what people end up with and at cost by the sounds?
