I bought this combo as my first tripod and head to begin glassing with binoculars from. I wanted a system that I could easily glass something up with the binos and switch to a spotter without doing a lot of damage to the budget since I also upgraded both bino and spotter this year from mid to alpha. The head is very smooth and easy to quickly go between my glass setups albeit slightly bulky and on the heavy side, but only slightly. The tripod is great as I am 5’4” and can use standing if needed. My only gripe would be that with the size of the head and extended center post, it’s not as compact as I would like but is still very usable for backpacking with.
much lighter than my old tripod, and has worked perfectly so far for my binoculars and small spotter.
Excellent quality and very lightweight.
Bought this tripod from S&S at the recommendation of friend. I had previously used the standard vortex tripod, and without a doubt this tripod is much smoother at panning the hillsides. Plenty of adjustability, rugged, overall a solid addition to my hunting gear.
Bought this tripod over a year ago now and I've been super impressed. Very ridgid, light and reliable. Used everything from 10x50s to my 20-60x82 spotter very impressed. Also S&S has never let me down with their customer service and prices. Keep up the great work!
