I’m glad I pulled the trigger on this tripod. As others have stated, it’s compact and super lightweight for such a quality tripod. I currently have a tripod with lever locking legs so I was nervous about the twist lock legs. Well, they are wonderful. The legs don’t rotate when operating the twist locks so it is quick and easy to deploy the legs. I put the Outdoorsmans micro pan head on the tripod because I was looking to save every ounce I could for my upcoming mountain goat hunt. I couldn’t be happier with the combination. The tripod and head combined with my small Vortex Razor HD spotter only weighs an even 4lbs. I’m saving a lot of weight over my go to Outdoorsmans tripod and Swarovski spotter combination. My legs will appreciate the weight savings on the long climb into goat country.
I purchased this tripod for a 10 day backpack Dall sheep hunt where every ounce counts. Saved 11 oz's over my go to outdoorsman's tripod. I even trimmed the foam rubber off the legs to decrease the weight without sacrificing functionality.
S&S archery was quick to reply when the tripod was back in stock and the purchase went smoothly.
Rock solid lockup and quality. Went with the slik over the Sirui CF combo and so far it’s awesome. Will see how it holds up. Great stability in wind while glassing while sitting.
Well worth the money, good quality product. Very fast shipping, will b buying again from s and s
I hunt a lot and I spend a lot of time glassing. I climb steep mountains so every pound matters. So does compactness, which is why I chose the 624 over the 634. My advice is to spend the money and buy this tripod. It is so much lighter than my 10 year old vanguard. It fits into the side pocket on my SG pack. It is strong and sturdy. I like the shorter size since I almost always glass from a sitting position. I put the Sirui VA5 head on it and could not be happier.
Before I bought I was concerned about whether it was actually lighter than my old tripod and whether it would be worth the money. It is substantially lighter and I would say worth the money. I say that because I actually bring it on every hunt now. Before I could talk myself out of it for one reason or another. This one is so light and compact it never comes out of the side pocket unless I’m glassing.
