    Synthetic game bags??

    What do you like better about the caribou vs viam? I have a set of the viam and I like them, but have never handled a set of caribous. I have a couple tag bags as well, and I prefer the material of them, but I didn't like their size offerings quite as much as the viams.

    Kuiu 1850 bag on a SG x-curve frame.. Only had to make a couple buckle modifications to the bag. Sorry I don't have pics right now, but can get some if someone wants.

    Replacing a recoil pad

    I assume this is one that does not have screws?

    Don't be an asshat!

    I will also agree that the feedback feature being added to the site was a nice addition, and I wish more people knew about it. I've bought and sold items on several different forums and the feedback feature on this site is by farm the easiest and most user-friendly. On a site where lots of us...

    Polarized Sunglasses

    From what I gather from reading online, Costa and Maui Jim are the two leaders in lens quality and all others are somewhat distantly behind, but I'm certainly no expert.

    Mid-Level Spotting Scope Review

    I may be wrong, but I dont think the new ones have the ability to change from straight to angled. The eyepieces change from variable power to fixed power, but your scope is still a straight or an angled. I love my Ares scope!

    Scope rings for Tikka t3x

    I have the same scope on my 6.5 and use low Talley lightweights. Not sure if they are the strongest or anything, but I have no complaints about them.

    Twist-Locks vs Flip-Locks

    I see this as the number one complaint about twist locks, but I'm having a hard time understanding what is more finicky about them. If I need to adjust the height of one leg by a half inch, what's the difference between a flip lock and twist lock?

    Twist-Locks vs Flip-Locks

    Yeah I guess I should've specified a little.. if I'm sitting on a hillside and my front leg will have to be longer than the others, I typically let the second lock open first, let that leg section fall completely and lock the flipper, then open the top flipper and let the leg fall the rest of...

    Twist-Locks vs Flip-Locks

    @tdot , @passinggas33 , let me ask you twist-lock guys a more specific question - When I sit down to glass, I pull my tripod out, hold it about the height I want it, flip the lock and the leg falls to the ground and then I flip the lock closed - repeat for two more legs and I'm done. Does...

    Twist-Locks vs Flip-Locks

    That was my concern, but since I've never used twist locks, I wasn't sure if it was an issue.

    Twist-Locks vs Flip-Locks

    Trying to decide between two tripods, both with nearly identical specs but one has twist-locks and the other has flip-locks on the legs. I have been using flip locks for the last couple years and have never tried a good quality tripod that has twist locks. I don't mind the flips other than...
