    There is a knurled knob on the back of the bipod you can tighten to increase tension on the swivel or to lock it down. There is also an accessory called a "Pod-Lock" that can replace the knob with a lever if one so chooses.

    I have retorfitted my current stash of swivel base bipods with the lock levers. That’s another add-on I won’t do without anymore. For as cheap as they are, they’re a great purchase that makes it even easier to fine tune he swivel tension.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Same here - and I usually lose... :tooth:

    As to the question at hand, I'm no expert, but it seems to me the non-swivel would be better for bench shooting - that's what I have on my Optima V2 pistol and it works well. I don't hunt - at least not yet - but my overworked brain suggests a swivel would be better in that application. These thoughts are worth exactly what you paid for them... :jester:
