    Question DIY Tripod and Saddle help

    Hey lads

    I'm looking to put together a tripod and saddle for stalks. I'd need the tripod to be able to extend from an average height kneeling position (I'm 6") to a standing position. It also needs to be able to support my L115A1 which weighs 8.5kg (18.74lbs) with optic and bipod.

    I'm on a bit of a budget so don't want to spend too much more than US$100 for the tripod/head. I will make my own saddle (something similar to a Pig Saddle).

    This is the closest thing I have found to meet my needs - Nest Pioneer NT-264AK Aluminium Tripod Kit

    If you have any suggestions or alternatives, let me know.

    Cheers

    Sorry I haven't any suggestions. How's the project going? Did you buy the tripod you linked to?
    I can shoot moa sized groups all day, every day, with pretty much any rifle. It's just a pity that I don't live in New Zealand, and that they're extinct.......
