Welcome to Derek Clifford Shooting Accessories.

Development of the Quad pod stick came about because I wanted a shooting platform which provided accuracy and confidence. Standard bipod and tripod sticks just didn’t fill me with the confidence I was after. Even with practice shooting off sticks at range was not an easy prospect.

The Quadpod is the result of extensive design and research.

During the last 18 months I have been working hard developing a new concept in shooting sticks. Quad sticks themselves are not a new invention and range from simple home-made sets normally utilising garden canes or similar to commercially produced alloy sets with other versions falling somewhere between. The stumbling block for many shooters is the ease of use for these commercially available sticks with many sets being constructed from cheap materials that inevitably will just not stand up to the rigours of the field. My sticks have been tested literally to breaking point with many prototypes used and abused before arriving at a product I considered fit for purpose and which completely filled my needs.

In November 2012 I was given a set that had taken the concept of a four stick system but transformed it into what was effectively a one stick system. Over the next few months I made several sets for test in the field and made a number of design alteration, it was only this extensive field trialling that led to the product I now produce.

Each set is completely hand made in my small workshop and finished to a high standard. All who have purchased the Quad sticks have given positive feedback affording them a high degree of confidence when shooting.
