Vtac vs Vickers

Looking for a 2 point sling for rest of my rifles. Tried a magpul and didn't like the way it adjusted. Tried Vtac padded and i like it much better than the magpul.

I've noticed in past threads that folks didn't like the Vtac because of the loose tail but the one i have has a velcro retaining strap so no more dangling tail.

Anyone has both the latest vtac and vickers? Which one do you like better?

Just out of curiousity, what did you not care for specifically on the MS2 adjustment? Haven't tried the latest VTAC so I can't comment on that.

Lets just say i think Vtac adjusted better and easier than the Magpul MS2. Vtac pulls the rifle tighter to chest by pulling on the strap down and away. The MS2 does it by pulling the strap up towards the shoulder. Just takes more effort with MS2 where the Vtac is almost effortless IMO.

I like my Vickers just fine, but thinking of adding a VTAC now that they added the velcro reaining strap. not waht you asked, but my 2 cents......
