I'm wanting to get an adapter to use my Atlas on my JAE ARCA rails but wanted some opinions on which way to go. Looks like the BTC-PRO will bolt right on the Atlas but you have to use a knob to tighten it down. The SC-LR let's you use a throw lever to tighten it down but would also require an adapter for the Atlas and would cost twice as much as the BTC-PRO. Is the lever worth the extra or does the knob work well? Thanks for the input.

I recently had this same question...I bought the SC-LR. Personally I prefer the lever. For me it is positive and confirmation that the bipod is locked down solid. With the knob, I would wonder if I got it tight enough. Or, once when I got it on too tight, I had trouble twisting it off again. I also like the half position with the lever that allows the clamp to slide along the rail for repositioning.

Just a head's up, but if you're using the Atlas Cant and Loc bipod, your options are limited. I picked up the B2-40-LR clamp and learned the hard way that it won't work with the Cant and Loc. The BTC-Pro will work, but I wanted a lever clamp instead of a knob.
