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.
Well worth the money, good quality product. Very fast shipping, will b buying again from s and s
I hunt a lot and I spend a lot of time glassing. I climb steep mountains so every pound matters. So does compactness, which is why I chose the 624 over the 634. My advice is to spend the money and buy this tripod. It is so much lighter than my 10 year old vanguard. It fits into the side pocket on my SG pack. It is strong and sturdy. I like the shorter size since I almost always glass from a sitting position. I put the Sirui VA5 head on it and could not be happier.
Before I bought I was concerned about whether it was actually lighter than my old tripod and whether it would be worth the money. It is substantially lighter and I would say worth the money. I say that because I actually bring it on every hunt now. Before I could talk myself out of it for one reason or another. This one is so light and compact it never comes out of the side pocket unless I’m glassing.
Fantastic Tripod. Better than I expected. Very stable and fits in my pack perfectly. Hats off to the guys at S&S for recommending it.
Still my favorite tripod, I’ve used it for three years now. I've just had one twist-lock break but plastic epoxy put it right back in place from sliding. I even took the rubber dampener on the top of it off to save more weight. Eventually, I got sick of the VA5 head coming off accidentally because I'd try turning when the head was locked. I put down the rarely used Red Loctite because I love the combo so much. Best backcountry tripod setup, it just works and doesn’t skip a beat!
