WICKED LIGHTS REKON TRIPOD SYSTEM

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried these yet? Not much online as far as field reviews, only Ripley's write up.  Seems a decent bit of kit but wouldn't mind a hearty review from PW user if I could.  Any idea if the pig saddle would be ok on a wood stock?

👍

I have been looking at these myself. Look to be very good for shooting of. My issue would be they look very bulky to carry around stalking, foxing at night etc. I have had a set of viper flex quad sticks from when they first came out. The question is would they tripod be better than my quad sticks?

Looks well made but there is a lot of moving parts. I dont like the idea of being clipped off when I might need to drop the sticks and shoot freehand.

I've been using a set of these for about a month now. Normally use a set of quad sticks and I think you will struggle to match the stability of quad sticks. My problem with the quad sticks was the are not the easiest thing to use while tracking a moving fox. This is where the rekon sticks come Into their own. So much easier to track a moving target. Handy to just slot your rifle in, track your target, tighten up and shoot. Easy to carry, light, and stable enough to shoot rabbits at 300 yards +. Never marked the rifle with the pig saddle. If you are shooting from a static position they are worth their weight in gold, as your rifle is ready to go as soon as you see your target.. Also very handy to leave your rifle on them when you need to take a leak or have a smoke or use your spotter.. These are Definately a keeper for me...

Bullet is bitten.....see what they're all about on the weekend hopefully! Main reason for me is for sole foxing, it's a juggling act with quad sticks, rifle, thermal etc. The fact I can now place rifle in a "locked" cradle should really ease the juggling act.

Or just relax a bit. Keep the rifle on your shoulder get the foxes attention and mount the rifle when he commits or if he stays out. Pre mounting on sticks trying to reach for the thermal and call at the same time is tempting but as you say its then a juggling act.

Wish you had not put that review up lol

Could be costly for me

They will be for sale on here within 6 months I reckon.

Your foxes must be a little more relaxed than the ones on my permissions...the minute I have any kind of "attention", shot window is not long enough to set quads, unshoulder rifle, mount on sticks, switch from thermal to NV, line up and take shot..🙈

Never know..mine may end up on here, but I'm very much hoping they aren't😁

:lol: yep they don't always go to plan. Will be interested to see what you think of them. I had one of those drop down tripod set ups at one point. It was great for ambush.

Its got "shooting" on the price tag must be worth it !!!

 

Just think when you have it all set up you will never miss anything again. 

 

 

 

And just looked at the price tag £269.

   I bought a set  about two months ago, Rangey  is pretty much spot on with his review,  I was using quad sticks as well have been for a few years,  they’re not quite as stable as the quad sticks but there’s not a lot in it  and as said they come into their own for tracking,  The thing I like about them is they are fully adjustable so you can shoot  prone sitting or standing  ideal if you’re static  and they’re quite lightweight and easy to carry like everything they took a bit of getting used to but then  so did my  quad sticks!!!  I wouldn’t be without them now I’ve even used them off the back of my pick up
