Has anyone tried the Stoney Point hiking pole with the Y-adaptor for a shooting rest as well as a hiking staff?

Here is the one that I have come to use more than any other walking device in my colection, Bi-Fur-Pod. Hope the hyper link works this time.

I was in hopes that someone would make one in a carbon fiber or some other light-weight material so as I could spend some more money. The spikes are the best part of the set-up, as so many times I am hunting the need for both hands, I can ease the pod into the earth and I am hands free, goes great with the GunBearer.
As a tribute to the bi-pod it made a steady rest for a 300yd elk, and 375yd white-tail shot, the later of which gave me a bad case of scope bite, (old beanfeild trick and 300Mag)both were heart shots. Give it a try you'll be glad you took the time.

Ihave used the Stoney Point pole for the last three years and like it. I hunt with a handgun and it works great as a rest.
