I will just let my video speak for itself: The difference of recoil control (if any) between Fab Podium & traditional bipod: The height difference between Fab Podium & traditional bipod when aiming the same point: So you still have doubts on how it deploys? Well, the only thing I'm sure is that it does kick, a lot! Thoughts? Ideas? Would you choose Fab Podium over the traditional bipod? Extra info: I do realize the design of the test was NOT fair to the Traditional Bipod since it was tested after quite a few shots already fired. The way I was holding the gun to control the recoil could be better. Green laser was considered for the height diffference comparison test.... In short, I got lazy... it was just for fun! The mag is stock and I'd suggest to try BadaBing's mag mods for better gas efficiency. I did it for my other 3 mags and they were working great. RA STEEL BUFFER was installed in my TM MWS M4 GBB. The recoil is of course much more stronger than stock. Green Gas was used for the test.
