BreakdownA very compact carbon fiber tripod, the Slik Pro CF-635 is for those who don't need a full-sized tripod and want to save some space. The Slik Pro CF-635 is extremely lightweight and compact. It has five short leg sections extending to 51.6 inches and folding down to 14.6 inches for carrying and storage. All 600 series carbon fiber tripods have legs made up of carbon fiber material that is actually comprised of 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are then bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace producing strong, lightweight carbon fiber.
So far so good. I've only had a chance to do an initial set up. I do like how compact it is. I'm a truck driver and sometimes get a couple days off when I get to Montana. I found a place in Livingston to drop my trailer and with the help of locals a trail head I can bobtail to.So hoping to get it in the mountains soon.
Great tripod, solid, lightweight, compact, worked well.
I had a Manfrotto 190. Great tripod, but kind of like carrying an anchor as far as weight. I lost ~2#s switching to the Slik and it is way more compact. No, it doesn't set up as high as the Manfrotto, but I have an angled spotter, so that doesn't matter to me. If I had a straight spotter then that could be an issue. It is plenty stable. I use a newer generation Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 spotter, which is not light. But the Slik handles it just fine. The tripod is compact enough I can actually set it up in the front seat of my Jeep. The leg adjustment works well, but it isn't fast to set up or adjust. I haven't found that to be a big deal either. I'm still using the Manfrotto pan-head, which is heavy, but it works well and I can't justify the money to upgrade right now. I'd recommend this tripod to anyone looking for a light-weight tripod option for their backpack hunting setup.
