    Actually, I'm studying to become a curmudgeon and eventually chief contrarian. Gene is starting to become lovable, and that makes him vulnerable to us younger old farts.

    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.

    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...
