    I have just got the Primos Gen 3 tripod one. It is very good. Well made and should last a long time. Because of that it has some weight to it, think camera tripod not walking stick, but not a hinderance. It adjusts well as is expected, folding out the legs can be a bit awkward in grass as the grippy feet catch but one set up it’s very nifty and with some practice should prove an invaluable piece of kit. Shire it’s £100 but I don’t feel cheated.
    Hope this helps.

    I've used the Primos Gen 2 trigger sticks tripod for about 3 years now and it's superb for stalking and seated ambush shooting.

    I also bought the above duel rest to fit on it but sold it as I found it useless when stalking (a pain to carry the trigger sticks with it fitted) and I also found it unstable to use when seated.

    Same as above, Gen 2 however I have recently reverted to light fighting order (rifle and rangefinder ) as I was starting to cart far too much stuff around.

    have to say the same thing to much messing around with the holder thing on as well, I mostly use my trigger sticks for sitting shots and I use quads for stalking and walking

    I had the Primos Gen 2 and sold them to buy the Gen 3 when they came out.

    Gen 2 I'd give 9/10 and the Gen 3 10/10. Extra point for the Gen 3 because the legs lock and won't slide out on a hard surface - it is also a little sturdier.

    I had the 2 point rest with the Gen 2 and found it very good, but I used it only for seated shooting and can see how it would be a PITA to carry around a field.

    Steevie, I got one of the attached for a tenner. It extends to your required height and is extremely light weight. I used it last night to see if I could get used to lugging around a stick and found it to be a great bit of kit as there's nothing to it. Definitly increased my accuracy and gives your arms a rest. I was about to buy the primos gen 3 tripod but I thought I'd invest a tenner to see if any kind of stick would fit my shooting needs (as 99% of the time I'm on foot and covering a lot of ground/ on the move). To be honest I'm not sure if the primos would suit me. Hands down its a great bit of kit but even with my cheapo one it took me a while to work out a way in which I could carry it, scan and shoot etc.

    If you search 'camo shooting stick' on Amazon you can find them.

    my old man bought me one of these last year... i couldnt get on with it, i found it moved around too much, for me it wasnt much better than shooting freehand, the primos on the other hand is great, its more stable than my bipod with the dual rest on top

    I found the same Carl - wobbled all over the place. I tried the bipod version too that was just as bad unless I was sat down.

    They're both sat in my shed waiting for someone to say 'I'll have that'. ;)

    Thanks Farty that is what I wanted to hear mate. Thanks for all your replies guys. The Idleback chair is excellent for the sitting down shooting bit, but just want something I can cart around the the rest of the site.

    Yeah true, you still get the wobble from side to side. Do you do a lot of walking about on your perms? How do you find it lugging the primos tripod about? Looking at the video you posted you can see how light they actually are
