RRS Ascend 14 Tripod

Model
2 items left

We've finally found it. The one tripod made in the USA that you can use for glassing AND shooting with a mounted rifle.  We have tested just about every solution on the market and we feel like this is it. You can have the best of both worlds with this setup and still be under 3.4 lbs.

The Really Right Stuff Ascend-14 tripod isn’t just another piece of equipment—it's your trusty backcountry sidekick. This compact, rugged tripod comes in two sizes for the modern hunter: the 14, designed to tuck away effortlessly in your carry-on, and the 14L, giving you that extra height advantage while still packing away neatly in your hunting backpack.

Need to quickly pivot and lock onto that trophy? The integrated ball head sits snug at the apex, ensuring a swift and sturdy setup. If you're loyal to one of our ball heads, or have another with a 3/8" socket, we've got you covered with the Ascend-14’s platform version. It swaps out the integrated head for a robust, universal platform with a mounting stud.

The Ascend-14 isn't just about functionality—it's a testament to rugged craftsmanship. Built with precision and pride, every tripod is hand-assembled right here in the USA, guaranteeing quality and endurance that matches the spirit of the dedicated hunter.
