Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly stable! I love this thing so much I have been putting arca rails on everything. It's built like a tank and will handle just about any rifle. I've bought it to predominantly use with heavy chassis rifles. It's perfect for that. I also put an arca rail on my kids' rascal. It is definitely going to the squirrel woods with us. The lighter rigs are easier to pack around. But this beast is incredibly stable even with the little shooters. I have 0 regrets upgrading from an aluminum bog to this and won't go back! Great work Vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last Bipod you'll ever need Very steady while using it and light weight while carrying it. This tripod has a galore of different positions and heights that can be adjusted into. Item is better for both, beginners and expert shooters. Can't beat the price while being backed by the Vortex VIP WARRANTY. Very nice carrying case with attachments inside. I prefer to use spiked feet which can be attached by removing the rubber feet that are installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Radian Carbon tripod is extremely sturdy. I mounted my precision rifle (roughly 15 lbs) to the ball head and had zero worries that the tripod and ball head would support the weight. There are several different adjustment knobs for the ball head that get confusing when you’re trying to make quick adjustments. With a heavy gun I had trouble finding the sweet spot where I could transition without the gun swinging wildly on the ball. I just bought the leveling head to have a little more stability at the apex. The ONLY downside is the size. This tripod is large and heavy. If you have a 3 day pack the pack will likely take up 2/3 of the room. If you’re hunting out west where you’ll have to hike in then take the size and weight into consideration. Also, if you don’t plan on making a lot of high angle shots then go with the leveling head. Overall, this tripod has the quality and durability I expect from vortex and recommend for any shooter/hunter.
