I used one of these for the first time last week on a deer at 204 yards. This tripod was rock solid, I was highly impressed. They are a bit heavy for caring around on a spot and stalk hunt, but for a pop-up (which is what I was in) or a set up location it worked very well.

I messed with one at a store, it didn’t seem to have a tilt function, is that really the case or did I miss something?

I figured so. Seemed like a solid option for an affordable tripod. I run a Reaper Grip on a larg CF tripod and also a Primos Trigger Stick tripod.

I tried a Pig Saddle on a Primos Trigger Stick Tripod and it wasn't steady enough for me.

Yup, great for what they are, but won’t hold up to the weight with any kind of saddle

I have a carbon death grip..it is very nice for the price but they do not tilt. I bought a ballhead adapter for it from a machinist. Still need a ballhead to test it out.

Hmmm, mine sure does. Great big knob on the side of the head. Loosen it to tilt.

Couldn't agree more, these things are MONEY! I have the aluminum version and mine tilts and rotates. Super steady shot!

It is a tad bit heavy, but it is rock solid. It does tilt. One knob tightens the grips to the stock and the other knob allows it to tilt. Love mine!

They rotate and tilt up and down but have no side to side adjustment to level the gun. You have to level using the leg adjustments.
