I have one and they work as advertised. The Podium is small, light and is super simple to deploy and retract. However there is a couple small things to be aware of in my experience with it.

The Podium is right in the middle of the rifle unlike other bipods. For me it's like a pivot point to where the rifle easily can sway up and down. To eliminate that pivot effect I reach back with my hand and grab the magazine to steady the rifle on a bench. For me this works best.

The Podium also extends out an inch or so at the bottom of the cutlass. If you like to brace your forearm down the cutlass the angle doesn't feel as natural with that protrusion.

Other than that it does what it was designed to do and does it well with a push of a button. It's a nice addition for the SAR.

I love it. Well thought out and honestly the best way to bipod a Tavor...unless you have an extended handguard...however even if I did...I wouldn't use a traditional bipod on a Tavor...the Podium is the ticket...

With how easy it is to change the trajectory of shots by putting weight on the handguard, I think the podium is probably a good compromise. Keeps the 30 rnd pmags off the ground when prone. It does add a bit of height to the rifle though
