    Any Reviews? Primos Trigger Sticks (tripod)

    My wife and I were at the sporting goods store last night (yeah date night with no kids ) and I saw this tripod trigger stick. I've always had my eye on these but then read "mount spotting scope" and my head started to spin. So for the next 10 mins I sat there and fiddled with it. Yes... sat there, in the middle of the store Which my wife didn't love ... Anyways...

    Anyone out there use these for the same dual purpose? Good, bad and some detailed reviews would be greatly appreciative.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have used one for years. I love it and after a few of my hunting pards commented they liked it too, I bought them one as a gift.

    I am and older hunter (72 in a week) and have had a replacement knee for 10 years. I used to use a walking stick ocassionally, but now only use my TS. I have shot 4 or 5 deer, a few antelope and 2 elk while using it. It privides a steady rest and is very quick to use.

    Yep great product! Quickest tripod adjustment I've ever used, plus it works as a rest for glassing and a walking stick!

    Thank you. Do you ever have problems with not having the ability "lock it down" on your spotter? So if you slightly bump it won't move? Or what about once you are on your animal and its moving up hill or down hill, are those adjustments tough to make?

    Thanks again.

    Oh sorry I've never used it for a spotter. Just glassing with the binos and shooting off of!
    We took this guy off 'em this year though!

    Like I said in my earlier post....It is definately great for a walking stick! One thing to remember to do is twist it firmly when you get the height adjustment where you want it for use as a walking stick, then all you have to do is press the trigger and it immediately converts into a shooting stick.

    Great product. They now make it with 2 legs, which to me seems to make it a little more cumbersome for a walking stick. I have never had a problem with mine being unstable for shooting, but maybe thats just me.

    Cowboy, is that the same one that Jim Shockey is endorsing? Looks like a winner to me, my Harris bipod would make for a real crappy walking stick. And it's heavy too....gains a little every year!
