TFB has never covered the CKYE-POD but it looks like a really nice bipod for Long Range and Practical Shooting.
For instance, it features 3 positions from front to back being stowed, 45 degrees, and 90 degrees.
It can also change 5 positions horizontally, I don’t think I have seen this on any other bipod before.
The pod offers ~170 degrees of cant, and you can mix and match the leg positions in any configuration to find the bipod height(s) that works best for you.
You can switch from a low prone shooting position all the way up to a seated shooting position, as the adjustability ranges from ~4.5″ up to 15.5″.
You can change the feet if you like. It comes standard with it’s own spiked foot/claw or if you prefer rubber feet, the Ckye-Pod will accept any Atlas style feet.
Now Modular Driven Technologies (MDT) has acquired the CKYE-POD, so it will be parts of their product range and hopefully find a wider customer base than before.

If you’re a match shooter or hunter looking for a game changing piece of gear, look no further than the MDT Ckype-Pod. Quality craftsmanship and fast, simple adjustments make this bipod the ultimate in versatility.
Expect a price in the region of about 500 USD. That’s a lot for a bipod, where a rifle chassis may cost less.
However, plenty of bipods do cost that amount of money. Just check out TFB’s review of the B&T Industries Atlas 5-H Bipod.
You can find the Ckye-Pod at MDT here.
