Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big and heavy, but stable I ordered this tripod without looking at it in the store, and kind of wish I had. While I wanted something that was relatively stable and could hold the bigger Viper scope I have, this tripod does not collapse down very small, and is pretty heavy. I certainly won't be packing it around, especially since I don't think it will even fit in my pack. However, for spotting at the range and from a stationary point while hunting (camp, high road, etc...) it would work well. Quality is good, it is very stable and I like that it doesn't use the ball system. Would recommend for certain applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way more than I expected. I bought this tripod in a package deal with my Razor spotting scope. Thought I would need to get a short one for prone shooting, wrong. I opened it up and the legs have 3 spread positions that take it to the ground. The pan head is very smooth does not creep or wiggle. The scope stays where you stop. Very robust stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect price point for a stable tripod! Using the Pro GT tripod for multiple purposes right now, and it's worked great. I haven't found/made a good weapon mount for using it to shoot from yet, but will work on that during the winter. I currently mount my chronograph for checking pistol and rifle velocities. I also mount my Razor HD spotting scopes, adjusting the height of the legs to match seated or standing positions for a spotter. Last of all, I was able to find a phone mount to use for an iPhone, which comes in handy using the slow-mo feature for a lateral recording of a pistols recoil impulse when testing recoil spring weights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance! I love this tripod for shooting at the range. I can expect flawless performance in the wind while videoing my shots through my viper spotting scope and I've even shot off the top with a 308 cal. For a solid rest. 3 years and its going strong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod!! This is the best tripod I have ever had! I have tried multiple tripod combinations and this is the best one and its at a great price. I also have the summit ss and I like it for the size but I noticed when your glassing its hard to keep steady especially with a spotting scope I wanted to get a more sturdy tripod for my spotting scope and was planning to use the summit for my 15x56 binoculars. Well after using this tripod a few times I just decided to buy another quick release plate and now I just swap out my spotter and binoculars and stick with one tripod. The pan head is very smooth and much easier to use for long glassing sessions compared to a ball head tripod with no handle. It is a little heavier and bulkier than the summit but it is way worth it when your up high glassing for hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod This is not too heavy. This is a well built sturdy tripod. I saw a number of reviews that it was too heavy, but it seemed to meet my needs for a spotting scope tripod. I am glad I got it. Its well put together and works great. The quick release works great. You could easily carry this and a Vortex Viper spotting scope in a pack while hiking without an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stable This is a very stable tripod that does well with heavier optics and can handle the wind. The legs adjust easily. The head is very fluid. I’m able to glass hillsides and pinpoint spots with ease. I was able to spot a bear across a canyon that I probably wouldn’t have noticed using my cheaper tripod due to the ease of the head rotating easily for a grid pattern type glassing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tripod I have purchased Bought this for my Vortex Razor HD 27-60x85 spotting scope. It is very well built and smooth operating. Perfect for setting up at home to view the mountains and for looking at stars and the moon at night. I also use it on my shorter hikes to watch and video elk. Stable, sturdy, and priced right! Good job again Vortex!!!

So when it stays extended 67” does that mean the center column fully extended as well or just the legs? 

Asked by: Jackie27
Yes, the center column is fully extended as well as the legs and it is 67" from the top of the head straight down to the floor.

Does the quick release plate on this Tripod fit the large "shoe" built into the Vortex Viper Spotting Scope or do I have to install the smaller more camera size shoe on the scope?

Asked by: NightFisher
Simply use the quick release plate that comes with the Pro GT and you'll be good to go.

what is the range of the vertical tilt? Can it be pointed straight up? If not, at what angle from the horizontal can a mounted scope be tilted upward and downward?

Asked by: Jeff
The Pro GT will adjust until it would be pointed straight down and almost straight up.

We do not have a car window mount that uses the same quick release plate as the Pro GT tripod.
