Frequently Asked Questions
Shooting Stick FAQs

» How quickly do they ship?
We ship stock Shooting Stick orders the next business day. If you want them personalized, add 7 business days to get the connector engraved.
» What size should I order?
We provide size information based on your height. If you are between sizes or plan to take steep uphill shots (need them longer to avoid scope eye) we recommend the next larger size as you can always work with a set that is a little too long. If they are too short, in addition to the risk of “scope eye” the “V” at the top that supports the fore end will be too close together and since it will not be wider than your fore end, the far leg has a tendency to kick out during recoil.
» What are the most rigid models you offer?
All of the models offered are very rigid and keep in mind that you do not have to press your rifle down into them to improve accuracy. They are simply a rest for your rifle and another point of contact. If you exert a lot of downward pressure, your muscles will fatigue and your groups will actually get larger.
» How long are they when taken apart?
All of our models unscrew and can fit in a full-length rifle case. Larges range from 36-38” and XL range from 38-40” long. If you are traveling with a take-down case or want to put them in a duffel bag, then our large or XL SuperCompacts will fit in either with an ID length of at least 28”
» How much do they weigh?
Domestic wood, large-sized sticks weigh approximately 2.5 pounds. Exotic wood sticks weigh a half-pound more due to their greater density, but this is still less than most premium Aluminum tripods. Super Compacts Hickory domestics weigh approximately 3 pounds (Featherweights weigh 1/2 pound less) due to the extra set of connectors which increase their versatility and allow them to unscrew to a shorter length.
» Do you repair them?
Yes, but we have only done this less than a dozen times in 15 years. If you need a repair, simply send them back with a note explaining what you need done. If you need parts you have lost or worn out, simply order them here on our web site.
