Being a cheapskate I made mine using 4 foot Fiberglass hollow garden stakes and 4 foot Aluminum solid rods cut the top off each to the length I wanted  mine, to also use as walking sticks, slid the aluminum rods in the garden stakes and sprayed in some expanding foam to prevent anything from being loose. Spray painted them and capped them  off with a foot of black rubber hose on each of the garden stakes super glued in place and hold every thing together with a rolled up section of bicycle inner tube at the bottom of the rubber hose.

You looking for something for all around like shooting on the fly while your hiking in  or hiking in and setting up over open country .

I really like the Primos Trigger Sticks. Faster to adjust than anything else.
:yeah: They can be the difference between success and missing the shot.  My only complaint, they are cumbersome to carry all day, but I put up with it for the chance at a steady shot.

I usually have trekking poles so if I canít shoot from prone like in tall grass Iíll either shoot off my tripod or loop my trekking poles together as shooting sticks. Not the most user friendly way to do it but steady once you get set up and Iím not carrying both

I tried shooting sticks and someone told me "Those are great until they break!"  Mine broke on the third trip out.  Hadn't even shot off them.

I'm sure there is better quality out there but I figure if my bipod won't work and there is no natural rest, I'll make due with my trekking poles.
