Go for it, I don't think you'll regret it. I have used all three generations. I still have and use a Gen 1 bidpod. I broke my Gen 2 bipod (my fault - I crammed it under the head of a dead oryx so I could get the right picture pose and it was more than it could bear), so I replaced that with a Gen 3 tripod. I've always used bidpods, so I was a bit hesitant to try the tripod. I've been using it for about a year now and love it. For my style of hunting, kind of a run and gun approach, it's perfect. I typically either sit in my Mojo Critter Sitter or stand, and the TS is ideal for that. I really like that the Gen 3 yolk is removable and the unit comes with an extra adapter. I use that on my camera to take "selfies." Fully extended, the TS is the perfect support for glassing long rangers while standing, something I have to do routinely in the brushy desert I hunt.

If you want to lock your rifle into a tripod though, don't get the TS. It's not robust enough for that. If you want a pretty solid bipod or tripod that you can deploy quickly, reposition easily, and get your rifle out of fast for up-close-and-personal use, the TS is a great option.
