  1. Great Saddle for the price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2018

    I bought this to try out a budget friendly tripod setup. Have shot off a Hog Saddle many times, and while heavier and not as pretty, this gets the job done just as well, holds a custom 14lb rifle with ease mounted on a Slik 700 and Slik 3 way head. Special thanks to the customer service as well, expedited shipping with ease for a coyote trip I was headed out on, would highly recommend Shadow Tech and their products.

  2. pig saddle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2017

    This thing became for me irreplaceable. Without her I don't go by a shooting range I Use a support but I am going to get a tripod and the ball head on this website. Sorry for my English.

  3. PIG Saddle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2017

    Great product when install to the tripod. This combo will bring a new concept for both PRS and advanced marksmanship practice. I will take this combo to the long range PRS training and It also provide opportunity to practice ambidextrous strait shooting or angular shooting at 100m targets from low prone to high kneeing and standing position. I high recommend to purchase saddle& tripod combo. Thank you very much, Joshua and Hogsaddle! I will be back soon

  4. Pig Saddle and PRST tripod 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2017

    Just received it... only had a chance to dry fire my 2 bolt guns (7mm Remmag and 338LM) using Pig Saddle directly on PRST tripod and a sling for tension. Feels solid. Can't wait to test this setup in the field.

  5. Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2017

    Far exceeded my expectations. Great build quality and easy to manipulate behind the tripod. The threading is very smooth an the rubber padding is very well executed.

  6. Manfrotto Bogen 3047 Deluxe 3 Way Pan/Tilt Tripod Head 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2017

    Pig Saddle was shipped fast and packaged well. Upon receipt of item, workmanship was nothing short of excellent. Everybody talks about mounting this fine product on a high quality ball head but as a working professional photographer that uses a ball head, mainly my tried and true Manfrotto 468MGRC2 Hydrostatic Ball Head, I actually prefer using my Manfrotto Bogen 3047 Deluxe 3 Way Pan/Tilt Tripod Head. Why you might ask? Since it's a 3 axis locking tripod head, the first thing I do is level the cant of my rifle and lock it down tight, all my rifles scopes have a bubble level. Now that's out of the way, you now only have to deal with windage and elevation and your rifle is always level. Lastly, I set my cross hairs about 3-4 inches below my target an lock down the windage and elevation. Just before I pull the trigger I exert slight downward pressure of rear of rifle stock to bring cross hair exactly on target, and fire at target between the heart beats. This method helps take out most of the wiggle for long range shooting. In conclusion, this product is a winner and your not getting back. Mahalo (Thank you in Hawaiian)

  7. Great product and great customer service. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2017

    I ordered my Pig saddle which was delivered within a couple of days of order, very fast shipping. The saddle appears to be very high quality and the customer service I received from Josh was amazing. He was able to walk me through my order with everything I needed. Thanks Josh!!

  8. PIG Saddle Rocks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    I bought this PIG Saddle with the intention of having my PRS clients rock this saddle at my matches here in Garrison Petawawa, ONTARIO, Canada. This baby feels solid and bombproof enough to take the abuse my clients both new and experienced will give it. I'm looking forward to giving it a workout. I love that tensioning knob, lots of leverage with my support hand while holding (strong hand) my PR rig in position. I like the smooth edges/no burrs finish treatment on the PIG Saddle. I just love the rubber/urethane/padded contact interface. I'm super pleased with the TWO holes on the bottom for 1/4" x 20 AND 3/8" x 16. Then I secured the QR or QD Sunwayfoto plate that I bought for $17. Smart move... the rest of you out there; DON'T buy ONE, buy TWO of them. I'm not joking. That Sunwayfoto plate is the best money I have spent... well so are all the products from these folks.

  9. Performance Plus 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2017

    Three days and two nights in the foothills — camping, hiking, shooting. So much fun . The Pig Saddle mounted atop a very sturdy and durable Slik Pro-Tripod faced tough terrain daily and never once failed to meet expectation. When my rifle was "dialed in" on paper the shooting experience wasn't just great, it was awesome. Most of our shooting was at 150 yards and closer. Rugged, durable, and trustworthy best describe these two pieces of equipment. Highly recommend for a rewarding shooting experience.

  10. Provides a very stable platform for shooting Long distance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2017

    Tried my Pig Saddle today. Took it to the range and was able to hit a IPSC size target at 960 yards multiple times. Provided a very stable platform to shoot from. Certainly more stable than an ordinary tripod. Being able to hold your weapon in position will help reduce my acquisition time greatly. The only improvement I would ask for is a quick disconnect lever.
