WELL Worth the Money I needed a bench rest and was going to purchase another Lead Sled product, when a friend gave me a few extra dollars for my birthday to buy what I really wanted and I got this. I debated whether it was worth the extra money. It has saved me so much time in fine tuning my guns. Gone are the minutes of screwing the base up or down and trying to make minute adjustments to find the perfect spot. The first gun I sighted in I got into position in about 5 seconds. I thought "That's it? That can't be right". Plus it absorbed the majority of the recoil. I was sighting in an ultra mag which has a tendency to kick like a mule. No problem whatsoever. It took NO time at all. I got a little frustrated trying to fill the weight bag. There were directions in the box showing a filling tube which does not come with it. I went to my local hardware store and purchased a plastic tube that I attached to a funnel. It took a minute, but I got the bag filled. It is a little pricey, but if you are looking to save yourself frustration, go with this. March 20, 2011

A: 
There is a bag that comes with it, but you have to fill it yourself. In the directions it shows a filling tube which is NOT included with the sled. I bought some tubing at my local hardware store, fitted it to a funnel and filled it that way. It's a bit tricky but it worked out. It's a great rest. Absolutely worth the money.

Details: 
I've recently had shoulder surgery and my surgeon recommends I don't shoot anything other than a .22 for a year. I'm willing to learn how to shoot "lefty", but would rather sight in with something that assures I have the .280 on target before I change sides. I need to make sure that this product delivers the same recoil reduction that the other models boast, while having the improved front cradle performance that the other models apparently don't have.

I was unbelievable impressed with the amount of recoil this thing absorbed. Previously I has used another rest to try to sight in my gun and the recoil knocked it out of the brace and popped me in the mouth. But with this rest I had absolutely NO problems whatsoever.

A: 
The specs say that it "Reduces recoil by up to 95%", but really, the name of the game with these units is how much weight you can throw on it in order to have something (other than your own body) absorb the recoil.

If you've previously used the original lead sled, it weighs 16 lbs and you're able to throw another 100 lbs of lead on it to bring it up to 116 lbs. The FCX has a 22 lb frame, the included bag can hold 50 lbs of lead shot, and they say you can throw an extra 25 lbs of weight on the tray, giving you 97 lbs of weight.

Given those numbers, I'd say no, the FCX doesn't deliver the same recoil reduction as other models, but will be about 84% as effective as the original model, but I'm sure you could probably find a way to sit another 20 lbs of lead shot on the frame if you really wanted to.
