BreakdownThe SLIK SH-707E is stable and all-metal. It has a multi-action pan head with a 6183 BK quick release plate. The simple one-arm lock-release system controls the movements of your optics. The single handle operation also has one control for both pan and tilt movements. This style of head is perfect for tracking moving subjects with a spotting scope or binoculars. It also uses a fast and easy to use quick-release plate to securely mount binoculars or a spotting scope on the tripod. The mount for the quick-release rotates 360° and locks down facing in any direction. The SLIK SH-707E also shares its quick release plate with several other heads in the SLIK line.
This is smooth pan head. The quick release is easy to use as well. For the price. I think this pan head is a deal.
Positives: Heavy duty, smooth operation, well made and reasonably priced.
Negatives(?): Removable base not same size as provided by Vortex optics so not as interchangeable as I would have liked but able to overcome that issue by buying the unidapters from Vortex so I can switch between my tripod and window mount more easily. Other issue appears to be the inability to fully lock the head from swiveling even when handle is locked down and not in use. Noise(?) Just my two cents worth shortly after I received it and looking forward to trying it out in the field this fall.
Great tripod head, smooth, easy to operate, compact, lightweight.
Got a chance to use this in the field finally and I was not dissappointed. It is a no frills pan head and for the money I was really happy with it. It is easy to adjust and did just what I needed it to do.
Now I can mount my spotting scope on my tripod and see where I missed at 100 yds and beyond at the range...and, I might be able to spot that 8 pointer. Thank you. Robert T.
