Really happy with the tripod so far, shipped the same day I bought it
I am really happy I did my research and read the reviews here before making the purchase. Shipping and service top notch. Excellent tripod and head perfect for upcoming spring bear hunting and filming spring turkey hunts. Thanks for sponsoring the local 3D shoot in Yreka. Keeping things local is so important in these wild times. Thanks drew
This tripod is built extremely well, extends tall enough to use standing and the ball head on this tripod is EXCEPTIONAL! This head has a separate panning adjustment which makes the adjustments much more precise. I noticed while panning with a typical pan head when panning left or right, that if the level changed, I would have to readjust the legs of the tripod every time. Very annoying, but with this ball head I simply make a slight adjustment with the ball head while holding the binos and keep on glassing. No longer adjusting the legs of tripod! Love the entire package! emailed S&S with question prior to purchase and received very quick response from Rob, Exceptional service! 5 stars all the way!
I bought this Tripod on recommendation and also after reading all the awesome reviews. I could not get hold of this Tripod in the UK, so after following S&S for a couple of years now I spoke to Rob over the phone, I ordered that day and gotta say the customer service is 2nd to none and he was so helpful. The Tripod itself is super stable, light, easily adjustable and so flexible when it comes to setting up on uneven surfaces ie, independent adjustment in the leg angle and length, the ballhead supplied is super smooth and great as a starting point and introduction to glassing with a Tripod. You cannot go wrong with the Promaster XC-M 525c.
Wanted a tripod that was lighter and more compact than my last. The promaster is great. Easy to set up and sturdy even with an 85mm spotting scope in a stiff wind. I don’t love the head and have already ordered a different one but that’s just personal preference. I would highly recommend this tripod and am looking forward to this years mountain hunts
