Legacy Reviewer's Review of Caldwell Lead Sled FCX Shooting Rest 820444

My friend has the DFT sled.After using the DFT with excellent results I bought my FCX from OP back 2/9/2011.They were outta stock,but the OP team got me one to my door with a $30 off V-day coupon by 2/14/11.Well since I have used the FCX for anything from my 10/22 Ruger to my Ithaca Mag 10 Nikon BTR scoped "Gobbler Gitter" & Remington 700 SFII Sendero 7mmRUM "Long Range Tack Driver".I like it better than my friends DFT because of the "Joy Stick" up,down,left,right,fine tune control.The FCX takes all that fine adjustment making it all-in-one for you.Plus it comes with two styles of front rests wide & narrow for different stocks.Like the other reviews here my supplied weight bag sprung a SMALL leak of the #8 shot I used to fill it.I simply used carpet thread to repair.Since I am very careful with it,and do not rely on it's handle to lift it.Just to up right and adjust the weight bag in its place on the FCX sled.I keep in stored in a small duffle bag to transport.Got it to 41lbs with the shot.It holds the sled very well with the JBM ballistics calculated recoil of 30lbs the 7mm Ultra Mag caliber.Which most likely produces the most of any caliber or guage I will ever put on this rest.IF your in the market for a gun rest the Caldwell FCX is your ticket!Optics Planet provides the best price on it anywhere you wanna look.
Pros: Joy Stick Fine Adjustment
Cons: Weight Bag Bad Quality
