The 3-section 290 Xtra Carbon is the perfect combination of rigidity and lightness. Carbon composite leg tubes increase the tripod’s rigidity and stability, enabling it to easily support heavy equipment. The top casting is made of magnesium, as are the adjustable leg locking levers which can be tightened to counteract any effects of aging and wear. This tripod’s key feature is in its choice of four leg angle positions which maximize viewing possibilities. Its rapid center column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The tripod comes with a shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times. Weighs 54.32 oz.
