Who has one?
Which one?
Like it?

I'm looking at two, The Legacy on the high side $400. Slow set up
X-Stand on the low side $159, fast set up

will be used for Prairie Dog hunting and wherever I might need it.

Thanks

I have tried various portable tables - they are cumbersome and somewhat heavy. but what I have gone too is:

Caldwell® Magnum DeadShot® FieldPod; Tripod(magnum is the heavy duty tripod) approx. $250



Innovative cast-aluminum hub provides adjustable rotation and tilting
Independently adjustable legs provide a height range of 18" to 60"
Quickly collapses and folds for hassle-free transport and storage
The Magnum DeadShot FieldPod Tripod goes where you go, lending stable benchrest support on practically any terrain for both rifle and crossbow shooting. The innovative cast-aluminum hub provides adjustable rotation and tilting for fast, stable target acquisition. High-strength, lightweight aluminum construction provides corrosion-resistant durability. Front and rear supports independently adjust for height. Upper frame adjusts for length and pivot point for perfect fit and balance. The gunrest also features a sturdy, dual-tube frame for easy length and balance adjustment and superior stability. One-piece design quickly collapses and folds for hassle-free transport and storage. Independently adjustable, dual-frame legs adjust to a whopping 60” for standing use or lay flat for prone-position shooting. A bubble level helps you achieve an even setup on rough ground. Rugged, all-surface feet balance the tripod on uneven terrain. Overmolded front- and rear-stock supports. Detachable carry strap included.

I know it's a lot of money but the Legacy is nice. Another option is to buy one from Ramball, probably ~$300 but would last a lifetime.

Ramball on here make some good ones out of metal. Very strong and durable. It is the exact collapsible table that is out at Jason's.

Buzz I shot PD's 10 or 12 years. I made 2 different models but, later I bought one at Cabelas that would swivel 360. You didn't need it to swivel that much but it is very steady and folds up nice. It is out in my shop, I think it is a Big Game. It really worked for me. I think I paid appox. $150. I did do some mods to mine, I have a larger than average butt. I went to TSC and bought me tractor seat and it went right on and a lot more confort.

I have a few of the Legacy benches and they are very good and made right here in central Texas.
I have tried the store bought ones but they have not been stable or roomy enough to suit me.

This one on the NRA website looks pretty stable. Might be a PIA to set up and take down.

It's a Herters, Buzz. $149 and not quite as sturdy as the one at Jasons.
