I haven't seen an Atlas in the flesh, but they sure are purdy - but they are ??3 times?? the price of the Harris. I figured I'd think about that if I ever think the Harris was holding me back, which may never happen.
I have three of their shortest, the BRM model, with the Schuster lever added to lock-in the angle of cant, as needed. I also have 2 more Harrises with the next longer legs (9-14"?) for higher elevation on certain rifles. Those too have had the Schuster Mfg lock lever installed.
When you factor in buying a Harris bipod, with cant ability, and then buying a panning adapter for the harris and a picatinny adapter it comes out not much less and with that whole setup to get the harris working with all my rifles I thought it would have been kind of janky. I think when I added up all the items for the harris I would have been around $150, I decided the extra $50 was worth it.
I love the panning aspect of the harris, that was a must for me. I know most people who have used harris bipods say that they can twist the legs when they are down to pan a certain amount, but with the atlas its a fluid motion.
