      Please, do not let any of this discourage anyone from attending the next F Class match at Reese Bottom. Received a new Seb Joy-Pod F Class front rest for the .223 this week. I had seven rounds left in the box from last month’s prone match so I took all of the stuff to the range Saturday morning to try it out. (picture included) Put a target up at 200 yards and shot all seven, pretty sure that they would have all been in the ‘X’ ring at 600 yards but there is no way to really tell.

      Steve Gilley had talked earlier about having to buy an adapter to make the rest fit his rifle so I ordered one ahead of time. Turns out that the thing fit right onto my rifle stock(have a blackhawk adapter for sale)

        How much weight does this bipod add? Can’t tell if it is aluminum or stainless. If stainless, the weight should help minimize barrel movement during recoil by holding the front end down as a result. This theoretically should help accuracy…..right? Sounds good anyway….lol

        Lance, Ernie Bishop, Wyoming, is the dealer here in the states. Mine was about a nine month wait time. I have shot a few shots over mine, it seems very stable. Plan to shoot it this month in the prone match. WWE

      I have been practicing with it and really like it. I will use it in the upcoming match and see how well it works.

      Wynne and Steve; did you folks shoot the SEB Pod in this weekend’s prone match?

      If you did, I sure would like hear your thoughts, observations and opinions.

        Al, I did use the new Seb Joy Pod during the match yesterday. The wider footprint of the rest is very stable and I personally like a joy stick. I also shoot my bench gun on a coaxial rest. I will also say that I think along with some other adjustments that I felt a lot more comfortable shooting from the prone position yesterday. I will admit that I put more effort into this match than I am accustomed to doing. I mounted my scope on higher rings and adjusted the stock to a shorter length so that I could lay at a little angle behind the rifle and still chamber the rounds with no trouble at all. Be advised that Dan Gunter also shot on a new wider bi-pod that he got from Steve Gilley and he was very pleased with the results. Several companies are making similar products, each to their on.
        ps: for sale: some stock adjustment. Hope to see you soon. WWE

      I also used the Joy Pod Sat. and really like it. I have been using it on a couple of my guns here at my home range and have shot some really good groups with it. It is very stable but has a very wide foot print. One leg is very close to edge when shooting from a table. The rough adjustments on the legs work good and the joy stick is very smooth. Great rest for prone shooting!
