Contrary to popular belief, the cheapest product is not always the best value for our money. Sometimes the best, even when it’s costly, is the best value.
As the Editor for GunsAmerica and as a competitive shooter I get to see the latest greatest equipment and gear at trade shows, matches, and when visiting companies. I’ve seen or shot off of just about every bipod ever made. The MDT Gen 2 CKYE-POD bipod is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of bipods. There is literally not a bipod that is more versatile or that has more useful adjustments than the CKYE-POD. There are also only a handful of bipods that cost more but we can all dream about what we’d buy if we won the lottery, right?
What I have here for review and in the pictures is the Standard CKYE-POD model and I chose to use the Really Right Stuff (RRS), SC-LR Mount because it’s also amazing.
By the way, CKYE is pronounced “sky.”
All the adjustments on CKYE-POD are designed to be made with one hand.
MDT CKYE-POD Adjustments
The CKYE-POD is well built using stainless steel and anodized aluminum. It’s even better engineered. It’s extremely stable and easy to shoot off of as well as adjust. If the Standard model isn’t tall enough MDT makes a double and a triple pull version that has the same features with more length.
After having used the CKYE-POD I wouldn’t even consider not owning one.
In conclusion, if you need the best bipod money can buy, the MDT CKYE-POD coupled with the RRS SC-LR is unbeatable.
