How do I adjust the hub tension on my DeadShot FieldPod?
If you prefer to have less rotation tension when the Rotation Lock Knob is backed off you can remove the center tripod tube that comes down between the legs by simply un-threading it. Then a 10mm socket can be used to loosen the locknut exposed in the bottom of the hub. If the locknut is backed off too much, it will create excess play or wobble in the hub system. Slight adjustments to the locknut will make a significant change to the rotation function, try adjustments of less than 90 degrees at a time while tuning.
To eliminate any wobble or play in the hub system, repeat steps above and tighten the locknut just enough to remove the play. Be sure the Rotation Lock Knob is backed off during this adjustment process. Replace the center tube once tuning is complete.
How do I make my DSFP more stable when shooting while sitting on the ground?
The leg brace mechanism comes from the factory preset to a position that allows the Field Pod's height range to be adjusted to comfortable heights for use while sitting in a chair or stool as well as on the ground. If you intend to use your rest only while sitting on the ground, the leg brace can be repositioned to allow the legs to take a wider stance. Simply loosen the three Phillips head screws (one where each section of the leg brace attaches to a leg) and move the brace up approximately two to three inches. Retighten the three screws. Your Field Pod will now have a wider footprint and increased stability but will not extend as high as before.
Will the DSFP adjust to fit my firearm or crossbow?
The DeadShot FieldPod is ideal for shooting rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders and crossbows. With a fully adjustable dual frame upper supported by a solid tripod base, the DeadShot FieldPod is capable of supporting nearly any firearm or crossbow. Length and elevation adjustments ensure fit and balance, while the precision cast aluminum hub system allows the rest to pivot up and down, and rotate left and right.
Will the DSFP work with AR style rifles?
Yes. The front and rear forks can be raised to offer enough clearance for most magazines. Also, the rail system can be adjusted to position the magazine so it can fit between the rails.
Can I use the DSFP while sitting down?
Yes. With a height adjustment range from 20 in. to 42 in., the Deadshot FieldPod works great for hunters sitting on the ground or in a chair.
How heavy is the DSFP?
The DSFP is surprisingly light. Constructed of high-quality, lightweight aluminum, the DeadShot FieldPod weighs just 4 lbs 15 oz.
Is the DSFP easy to transport?
Yes. The DSFP collapses into a compact unit. It comes with a sling that makes carrying it the field very easy.
Will the DSFP work with crossbows?
Yes. The DSFP works great with crossbows.
