I go with the Harris s-25 to get me over vegetation. It's still short enough to shoot prone, but at 25" you can shoot sitting to get over grass, and brush.

I've been using this model when hunting for about 8 years now.

The s is for "swivel" which to me seems to give one a little better advantage, when out in the field, on uneven surfaces than the standard Harris model.

I have the short 9" standard model for when at the range.

Go with a swivel model for sure to overcome any canting and get a quick-release lock. (You can get either the Pod-Loc or get the parts cheaper here: http://t-nuts.com/index.php?cPath=73&osCsid=8fa7a95e47d011e66d1d01b843e2c163)

I use the 9-13 model and occasionally run into prone shots where I wish I had a little more height, but that's generally good. I wouldn't go smaller. I don't see where the lowest model would be any good except in an urban situation.
Reaction time is a factor...

Here are my shooting sticks.  Doubles as walking sticks and glass stand.  I really like these.

I have a set of the "Stoney Point" steady sticks which work well but I keep going back to my Harris setup. Big Grin
