  1. Best $135 ever spent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jan 2017

    this has got to be the best $135 I've spent in my predator hunting arsenal. I'm able to make shots without hardly having to move my body. Being able to run the light or call with one hand and shoot with the other has made things so much easier. Makes me wonder how I ever managed to do it without the pig saddle.

  2. Why Pig Saddle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2017

    I purchased my Pig Saddle after using a hunting buddies on my recent trip to Arizona for Coues Deer. He had me use his setup and I harvested a nice buck at 444 yards. No vibrations or shakes at all. Excellent product that is well designed and produced. Immediately ordered mine and am looking forward to using my own.

  3. rifleman's edge 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2016

    Getting up in the age spectrum has a tendency to send vibrations down your sight plain . Iron or scope, this pig saddle and tripod sure squelches that vibration. Awesome product, extreme little package. Just ordered a new Manfrotto tripod (MT190GOA4TB) and magnesium ball head to replace my old tripod. Should hold my AICS stocked Rem 5R.308 quite well. Thank You.

  4. great product 5 Star Review

    This is a must for long range practical shooting applications. Quality workmanship, well designed, built with quality materials.

  5. Great for hunting out of ground blind 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Oct 2016

    I hunt out of a ground blind occasionally and sometimes just in the taller weeds , attached pig saddle to a trigger stick tripod and feels rock solid

  6. The PIG SADDLE does what it advertises it can do. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2015

    Very impressed with the PIG SADDLE takes all the work out of tripod shooting. I am a huge fan of your product. Works well in vehicle his in any urban area hide. It's the best.!!

  7. Great Product Fast Shipping!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2015

    Great product! Never shot off one and was hitting targets easily at over 500yds. Make sure you have a good tripod!

  8. pig saddle great for the price. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2015

    The pig saddle is a very good quality piece of work. But being a metal stamping I can see its limitations and the reason that the hog saddle was necessary. For shorter range applications and the price savings over the Hog saddle it meets my needs well. Holds rock solid when torqued tight. The only flaw that I have found is the lack of the hole for the antirotation on the tripod mount. But being from a aerospace background that is no problem for me other customers my not have the same option.

  9. Maximize effectiveness 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2015

    As a farm owner protecting crop fields from prairie dog damage is a necessity. The Pig Saddle greatly increases the accuracy of my 100+ yard shots thus freeing up my time for more important tasks.

  10. The Pig Saddle is a great piece of kit! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2015

    A couple decades ago messing with field expedient rigs was, at best, a pain.
    This Pig Saddle locks up and holds position with almost zero effort. I put it on an Arca Swiss Z1 Ballhead (59 kg max lock) with Manfrotto sticks and the 16+ pound platform did not budge in any position I tried!

    Thanks for you're very reasonable solution to a long standing hitch!
