Bought this after getting after my viper 85mm spotting scope from AAOPTICS! My old tripod was the ssp and struggled with the weight of the spotter. This tripod ROCKS. I am 6’2” can use spotter with kneeling or crouching over, same with my binos and it is very stable. With only three leg sections they are thicker and stronger than the skinny little four section tripods. It is bigger 29” collapsed fits perfect in outside pocket of my mystery ranch pintler or right between the torpedo pockets of my Marshall. Only 3 lbs. it works great sitting down because of longer legs I don’t have to fiddle around with extending legs just pop them out wider a notch and raise the center . Super fast, super easy, this is capable of all uses. I mounted a Spartan precision Davros head to an arca Swiss and now the tripod is an awesome shooting platform too. 22 lbs weight capacity is more than enough for my optics and my various hunting rifles.
