Q: What is the difference between the HOG Saddle and PIG Saddle.
A: Basically two main differences.
The HOG Saddle is CNC machined aluminum making it 30% lighter weight than the PIG Saddle. The PIG Saddle is slightly heavier due to its steel construction.
Stability wise, the MOD7 HOG Saddle will feel slightly more stable when shooting past 600 yards. Ranges closer than 600 yds are equally stable.
A premium product VS a proven product that gets the job done & doesn’t break the bank
Strong, rigid and precise
The Wicked Rekon aluminum to magnesium transition assembly has been strengthed over current shooting tripod systems where traditionally there has been a weakness when using tripods for shooting.
With other brands, when extended with a heavy rifle attached, there typically was movement, but the Wicked Rekon remains solid and precise even at full extension of tripod height thanks to the reinforced magnesium and aluminum risers to mitigate recoil and provide the ability to use heavy calibre rifles.
Pan, Tilt, Cant, Fully controllable, adjustable through 360 degrees, from prone to standing
Four section carbon tripod legs allow for complete flexibility when shooting whether you are 5ft or 7ft and on uneven and rugged terrain.
The central shaft system can be adjusted further in height, but if under 6.5ft in height it can be removed and the ball head mount fixed directly to the tripod, minimizing even more movement with a more than adequate height adjustment range.
Using the Hog Saddle system, the amount of friction of the ball head can be adjusted to allow you to move the rifle to your designed amount of restriction to allow pan, raise and lower, with a lock in position to retain your rifle in a fixed position.
