Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very light weight and small which is the good and the bad. I bought this to lighten up my load with my 20-60x80 HD Viper. Which it is very light tripod at 2 pounds makes it nice to pack...makes it worthless in a medium to heavy wind. I know with everything there is a give and take this was designed to be small and light and it does that very well. I should have thought the small part through as I have a straight eye piece Viper and angled piece would work much better with this tripod. as I am over 6 foot tall (75 inches) maximum height of this tripod is 54.5 I have to squat or set it up in a sitting position. For what it is the build quality is great, I just wished I would have went with a bigger heavier tripod.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod for the weight I have been running this tripod for a couple years now for glassing with my Razor HD 10x42 binos, and my Razor HD 11-33x50 spotter. It is a nice lightweight tripod, which is what I wanted, but with that, it can be affected by the wind a bit even with the lightweight optics I use. I am a small guy, so the height does not bother me, but I could see how someone taller could potentially have issues. The panhead is easy to adjust and makes for super smooth glassing. The legs telescope fine and long as you take care of it and try not to fill it with mud. Overall I have been quite pleased, and plan on continuing to use it for quite a while.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light, functions well, but has drawbacks The tripod is super light, the head moves smoothly with a ton of adjustment and works in all conditions I had it in. My issues is with the twist lock legs. The twist locks made it difficult to get the legs to extend evenly, and it always seemed like one side never wanted to lock. I cant count how many times I went to put my binos or spotting scope of and one of the legs would collapse. I found myself not using the tripod as much because of this. set up and tear down was not as easy as a flip lock. If you need to save some weight this is the tripod for you. If you can spare an extra half pound then I would go with a flip lock for the ease of set up and tear down. You will never have to wonder if the legs are locked
