I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on this tripod. I never stand and glass, so I'm happy to save a little weight
and use this as a sitting tripod with enough height to extend legs on hills as needed. This is very stable, compact and lightweight, so perfect for my style of glassing and hunting. I mounted an outdoorsmans pitol grip with panner on this and it is sweet. Nice sized and smooth twist locks are easy to loosen at the same time and all in one hand, so very fast to adjust and lock. I highly recommend this to anyone.
I’ve had a bunch of tripods over the years and have always HATED twist locks… after reading some reviews on rokslide and my buddy Robby bragging it up I thought I’d give it a go…
It’s unreal so far and the twist locks are money! Never thought I’d say that.
I also want to thank S&S. Fast shipping, great price!
I’m glad I pulled the trigger on this tripod. As others have stated, it’s compact and super lightweight for such a quality tripod. I currently have a tripod with lever locking legs so I was nervous about the twist lock legs. Well, they are wonderful. The legs don’t rotate when operating the twist locks so it is quick and easy to deploy the legs. I put the Outdoorsmans micro pan head on the tripod because I was looking to save every ounce I could for my upcoming mountain goat hunt. I couldn’t be happier with the combination. The tripod and head combined with my small Vortex Razor HD spotter only weighs an even 4lbs. I’m saving a lot of weight over my go to Outdoorsmans tripod and Swarovski spotter combination. My legs will appreciate the weight savings on the long climb into goat country.
I purchased this tripod for a 10 day backpack Dall sheep hunt where every ounce counts. Saved 11 oz's over my go to outdoorsman's tripod. I even trimmed the foam rubber off the legs to decrease the weight without sacrificing functionality.
S&S archery was quick to reply when the tripod was back in stock and the purchase went smoothly.
Rock solid lockup and quality. Went with the slik over the Sirui CF combo and so far it’s awesome. Will see how it holds up. Great stability in wind while glassing while sitting.
