BreakdownThe Summit Carbon II tripod is the perfect setup for the lightweight backcountry hunter. Built with carbon fiber legs and only weighing 2 lbs 6 oz you can take this lightweight tripod still offers plenty of support for your spotting scope. Featuring a 2-Way, Arca-Swis compatible, pan head this tripod provides smooth glassing at any distance.
Haven't gotten it in the field yet, but out of the box I know I will love the weight and packability. Seems to handle my small spotter just fine. I'm banking on this being another quality item that Vortex makes.
The quality just doesn't compare to say a Slik. The first hunting trip the leg adjustment froze up on me. I couldn't collapse or extend.
Very light feeling, stable. Seems great. This season will tell. Easy to use
So far, it is working well with wife and mother using it to look at cargo ships passing by and a limited fly fishing trip to Montana....fairly easy to us, but the real test comes this hunting season. I didn't want to spend the extra $100 for the taller tripod, but at 6'2" I just spread my legs to lower my head down a bit. A little akward, but it works
