For backpack hunters who demand precision and portability, and the ability to stand behind their glass, the Slik 633 SLIK PRO CF-633 stands as the pinnacle of weight vs stability. Weighing in at just under 2 lbs, the Slik 633 is an invaluable asset for those treks into the backcountry. This ultra-light tripod ensures that every backpack hunter can get to the perfect glassing point without being burdened by excessive weight. It extends to an impressive 64 inches, offering a standing height, yet effortlessly collapses to a compact 21.25 inches.
With its very conservative carrying rating of about 6.6 lbs, the Slik 633 can securely hold spotting scopes, binoculars, and cameras. This makes it an essential tool for hunters who rely on high end optics to find game in any environment.
All tripods in the revered 600 series, including the hunter-favorite Slik 633, come equipped with durable carbon fiber legs. These are intricately constructed from 8 layers of interwoven carbon strands, then seamlessly melded together in a high-pressure furnace. The result? A tripod that offers unmatched strength while remaining featherlight, ideal for backpack hunting trips. The legs of the Slik 633 also incorporate the game-changing A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System), ensuring unwavering stability when tracking or scouting. Each leg features an adaptive lock, providing hunters the flexibility to set it at three distinct angles - be it for elevated scouting, waist-level spotting, or low-angle observations of tracks and signs.
But where the Slik 633 truly shines for backpack hunters is in its intuitive design. The leg sections, reinforced with twist locks, allow for rapid setup and takedown. And with the non-rotating design, hunters can swiftly unlock all segments simultaneously, meaning less time fiddling with gear and more time focused on the hunt.
