What brand and height bipods do you guys use? Solid or swivel? Rear bag or monopod?

I want to get started in FClass and don't want to drag out my benchrest front rest.

Not sure what caliber I will be shooting yet.

HARRIS BR swivel with notched legs. Be sure to get a swivel lock for it as well.

You will need a rear bag.

So, basicaly, the swivel with lock will allow you to lock the bipod's swivel to a level position. That eliminates, or at least lessens, cant? Am I correct?

I've read elsewhere that the Harris may not be the best choice, something about "preloading" the springs but not being able to do so consistantly. I understand what it all means, just want to know if they are correct in the fact that there may be other bipods that are more consistant.

Sinclair has a new model in the works. Not in the price range of the Harris, though:

There is a gentleman in Canada, I believe, who makes a heavy duty bipod for F class, but I can't locate his contact information. I believe his runs in the $400+ range.

I think this is the Canadian bipod you are refering too.
