Glowing reviews abound! I was lucky enough to 'try BEFORE buying' by using a friend's table for during a 3-day prairie dog hunt in eastern Colorado.
I was initially concerned that the table might be NOT large enough to accommodate the usual gear including the rest, range finder & glasses, and be an ergonomic 'fit' for us LEFTIES. NO worries!
The Caldwell table that is larger and left/right specific is over TWICE the price, and weighs considerably more, in addition the LEFT-hand version does NOT come with the laminate-covered table, while it does provide a wider seat.
The STABLE TABLE served my purposes perfectly while breaking down into about 7 major parts for storage and transport. The 70-pound assembled weight is exceedingly easy to manage and only takes about 5 minutes to break-down or re-assemble in the field which is important when changing fields two or three times a day.
NO tools are required for the field break-down. Initial assembly took about 30 minutes, easy even for this mechanically-challenged shooter. Instructions were clear, and all required tools were provided, with the exception of a 1/2" wrench.
Nearly every other retailer had this table priced at around $250, or the bill totaled $250 after considering shipping. Optics Planet price INCLUDING shipping was $70 less. It arrived less than 1 week from the date of purchase.
The 360-degree swivel is perfect for catching 'dawgs' in most every quadrant from one shooting position. Couple that with a shooting 'rest' that permits a degree of 'vertical' adjustment and you have a fast-transition shooting position.
My 'first' dawg hunt was all done from prone, or improvised car-rest positions. Ugh! What a difference when you can sit upright, not only for comfort but for better visibility to 'see' the critters at distance.
Included is a cross-table set of V's that permit a means of rifle resting for post-shooting cleaning duties.
Can you tell I'm thoroughly pleased?
Pros: Nearly Everything
Cons: Bulky; Heavy; But NEEDS to be!
