Sirui Backcountry Hunting Tripod and Head Combo
After holding off for a long time on buying a quality tripod and head I stumbled across this bundle. Super happy with the quality, light weight and stability.
I’m not completely excited about the the small inconvenient tension knobs on this head. It’s pretty tough to get to them under the spotting scope. I also feel that the adapter plate is about 40 percent to big....The tripod wit removable legs is great though.
I am left landed and I like the tripod head handle towards my face, this setup allows me to to do both exactly how I want. The head is very smooth and the whole setup is super light. Very easy to use, my 4 year son has mastered the system already (he is not gifted). Amazing watching my kids locating birds in the backyard and locking down on them...tripod has already been worth the price of admission. Now it's on to high country mule deer!
This review is more about S&S's outstanding service and recommendation than just the tripod. I called during my lunch break on Friday to ask questions about a new tripod to replace the cheaper one I've used the past few Coues deer seasons. Based on my optics and glassing style, I was pointed in the direction of this Sirui combo. The package arrived on my doorstep Wednesday, and Saturday I was glassing for desert bighorns. Man did this combo change how I glassed. I was super comfortable all day. It was lightweight but sturdy as a rock and the head was extremely smooth. Hours passed by with no neck aches or eye strain. Adjustments were extremely precise and held true.
