The two pound carbon fiber tripod you can stand behind. Literally. This super stable, ultralight tripod is perfect for the backpack hunter who needs to stand behind his glass.
Back by popular demand S&S Archery worked direct with Slik Tripods to bring back the original Slik Pro 624cf and 634cf tripods. The Slik Pro CF 624 and 634 series are extremely compact, lightweight and stable tripods; perfect for the discerning backcountry hunter looking to save weight but not give up on performance.
The most compact and the lightest of the full sized carbon fiber tripods, the PRO 634 CF weighs just a feather over 2 lbs but with 4 leg sections the tripod can extend from its closed length of just 18.0 inches to it's full height of 63.10 inches. This tripod can handle up to 7 lbs of properly balanced equipment making excellent for photographer that are traveling without heavy lenses. But, it can still handle professional camera bodies, wide-aperture wide-angle and standard lenses as well as some long-range telephoto lenses. The feature-set shared by the other PRO carbon fiber tripods is continued with the 634 CF, a perfect suitcase traveler.
Features of the SLIK PRO CF Carbon Fiber Series
Multi-layered Carbon Fiber
Carbon Fiber material is actually comprised of layers of woven carbon strands that are then baked together in a high-pressure furnace. When finishes this material is as much as 40% lighter than aluminum and very rigid, making it for applications from space vehicles to tripod legs. Slik sources it’s carbon fiber tubing in Europe from a manufacturer that specializes in carbon fiber.
A.R.S (Ant-Rotational System)
All the New SLIK PRO carbon fiber tripods feature a new A.R.S (Ant-Rotational System) designed into the legs and log locks. The A.R.S. systems prevent the leg tubes from rotating inside each other making it much easier to lock and release all the twist-release locks securely. The size of the rubber grips have also been increase in diameter to make them easier to operate.
Twist lock system with double nut ring (crown-cap) type (PAT.).
Multi-Angle Leg Locks
Each leg has an independent lock that sets in one 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three setting are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography close to the ground. It also makes it easier to set up the tripod on uneven ground, steps or rocks.
Built-in Short Columns
The center columns unscrew into two piece to create a much shorter column for use in low angle photography.
NEW spring loaded center hook for when you need that added stability.

Bought this to replace an older Vortex tripod. I was a little worried about the overall length but was able to fit it into my exo 3200 pack (side pocket) with a Sirius VA-5 head attached
It took awhile for me to decide if I was going to invest in this tripod not because I didn’t think it was worth it but because I didn’t know if I could justify it. Well.... do yourself a favor and take some advice from a frugal tired ass like me and go ahead and buy it… You won’t regret it. It’s lightweight versatile packable and very sturdy. I can’t wait to take it out West this fall and it should provide me with a mini mini years of service. Great product from S&S that I’ve come to expect. And the free shipping and customer service keeps me coming back again and again. The only thing I’m trying to improve on is if I can conjure up a shooting head do use this tripod for double duty because I love that it fits a taller person like me.
love this tripod. its the perfect balance for hunting. lightweight to pack around, but still sturdy enough to glass long distances.
smooth, lightweight, backcountry approved
Tripod worked well from sitting position to standing. Lightweight and sturdy. Was impressed on ease of use
