What’s your optimum bipod height range for prone field shooting? Hilly grassy environment. I am considering a Harris 6-9” or a 9-13”

I run an Atlas prs with the 6.5"-9.5" legs, have had zero issues with it..if I needed more height, I would just buy the  Leg extensions....

One of the advantages to the PRS (or any bipod that has a 45-degree keg position) is that you can go with the longer legs and use the 45-degree position if you want the rifle lower.

I'm 5'8", so 6-9s work for me. I have 3 Harris 6-9s and one 9-13 and the latter is just too tall for me.

My Sako TRG bipod seems a bit taller, at the minimum, but it still works well.

6-9 works well for flat or downhill shots but can be an issue if you have to shoot uphill.  I have both and use the 9-13 more often.

Depends on how thick you are ;)

I use the 6-9 primarily but its always nice to have options for weird scenarios.

I’ve gotten to the point that my 6-9 is for the bench only.

Whether it is elevation change, grass, or something else’s. The extra height helps get over it.

I have both.  At any point in time, one is on my rifle and the other is in the rifle bag.  They attach/detach quickly and easily enough (sling stud) that a change in the field is simple.  So in typical ARFcom fashion, the best advice is "Get both!"  Having said that, carrying both around will increase the cost and weight of your gear.  You will likely get one and then some period of time later get the other...  

The one I use most in the field is the 9-13.  The 6-9 sees most of its use on a bench.  It's nice having both.
