HI Chris,
Might be able to do a short run between batches depending on my time, but we planned to do next batch in a few weeks.
Cheers
Chris

He Peter,
Next batch should be ready soon, new version is now aluminium, we have been working on the possibility of an aluminium one for a while and now it is available, the CF one is strong and light but the new aluminium one is super strong and still super light, only 452g without windage handle fitted and 495g with fitted. Now only sold with windage handle, price is 520 dollars including Gst. Send me an email for more information, my email is theshalapa@gmail,com.
Cheers

Here is a pic of the new aluminium Auspod. With windage handle 495g and only 452g without and now super strong and even more solid super stiff. We tried to break a reject just to see how strong and I am convinced after that test that you could shoot a 50 cal off the aluminium version.

windage handle can be swapped around ie for left and right handed people, the one in the pic is set up for me and I am left handed.
Cheers

New one the aluminium pictured above is 520 dollars with the windage handle included and doing a batch now so they are available this week, only a couple though on this batch not spoken for. Postage is 20 bucks for Queensland and 25 for interstate.
Email me at theshalapa@gmail.com if you want one and I will put one aside for you.
Cheers
Chris

Hi
I had a Joy Pod but felt it was so light in its construction and awkward to get to the right elevation spot but could not fault its finish and neatness, just my experience, also struggling to get the right technec for FTR I have mastered the Harris style as its easy to load it up with forward pressure, this is the hardest part for me in FTR to gain forward pressure. My question is can the Aus Pod be used with forward pressure and how is it best achieved. Have you a youtube clip of the oz pod in use and how does the windage lever work ??
Thanks as I would change over to this discipline one day if I could master the technec.
Thanks

Contact me on email and pics and vids are easier for further information. That said the reason I started this project was to try to eliminate flex and play. We are now onto something like version 8 as we keep trying to fix every little issue that we find. The new aluminium version is super super stiff, old one was stiff too but aluminium one is another thing moving rifle back and forth on a marine carpet there is very very little rear forward flex which it not the case on most bipods and what we wanted to achieve in the first place. This rear forward flex will give elevation shots, we have tried to make a f open stand on a bipod that was the design idea, probably a crazy idea but was the design plan and we decided that was what we wanted to do, and we have made a bipod that is as forgiving as possible of mistakes. On a flat surface drawing back and forth the cross hairs hardly move which was my aim with this project. I still recommend you do the same each time but mistakes will cost you less than with other bipods due to the rigidity we have achieved.
The windage is simple it is the same as the American team use it is a wand you pull the bipod left and right.. The elevation handle is too high to do this the windage is low and the hand is on the ground so it is braced so tiny adjustments are possible. Having a separate windage means too that elevation is set moving left and right should not mess with your height.
In summary when you take a shot you want it to go where you aimed for that to happen you need a rest or bipod that is stiff and the Auspod is very very stiff And even making a mistake ie not drawing back or loading the rifle should not cost you as much as with other bipods due to this rigidity.
Contact me via email if you want one I have very few left in this batch.
Cheers Chris
