Bisley London Grip Seat
By: Jules Whicker
Having something to sit on when you’re waiting for the first birds to come over helps keep you sharp, and the cartridge collector means you don’t have to spend as much time rooting around in the undergrowth after your empties as your dog does looking for your birds - especially if you’ve drawn a hot peg.
I use mine when flight-lining and decoying pigeons too, as the magnet is strong enough to pick up 50 cartridge cases at a time. The seat is made from tough, easy-clean, glass-fibre-reinforced nylon and two designs are now available: the original fold-out “Supa Seat”, which measures an ample 16½” x 6” (430mm x 150mm), and the new compact bicycle-style “Elite Seat”, either of which will support up to 275lb (125kg).
Both feature a strong-but-light, stove-enamelled, aluminium stem, adjustable in 8 steps from 33” – 40” (840mm - 1020mm) for a sitting height of 25” – 32” (650mm - 820mm), and hand-grips in the seat so it can do double duty as a walking stick on the way to your butt, peg or hide. There’s also a pointed tip and a mud plate for grip on soft ground.
The Grip Seat costs around £75 and is available from your local Bisley (John Rothery) stockist.
