Out of all of the new shooting rests, the Bravo model seems to appeal to me the most. I especially like how unobtrusive the design is leaving you to articulate yourself around the rifle. It also appears to be the lightest of the bunch at just 15 Lbs which would make taking it to and from your shooting position easy. Which one of these new shooting rests appeals to you the most?
