    Farley front rest

    I am about to buy a front rest for benchrest shooting. The front rest that i am thinking of getting is the farley front rest. I have noticed that farley has changed the shape of the rest wher it holds the 3" bag. The older style had ears that put tension to the bag, but the new style has two cams that tighten toghether on the bag. Do any of you out ther have a new farley rest with the new style front bag? I just want to hear pros and cons of the new style rest. Please PM me your openions on the new style rest. Before i spend 1000 on a rest i want to make shure people out ther have had good experience using this styl of rest. Gabe

    Get it......... The new top is EXCELLENT... Not really BETTER than the old just a bit "NICER" and has an integrated level.

    Mine is the new one

    I purchased a Farley of the new design. Cannot comment on the comparison of the new style v the old as I have never shot off the old style. I did shoot of one with the lighter weight base and decided on the heavy. The silicone boot does need to be disconnected. But having made the switch I don't think I would like going back to being a bag squeezer.
