The Field Optics Research Tripod Pistol Grip Carbon Fiber Kit comes with an extra lightweight Carbon Fiber tripod and pistol grip head. The large Carbon-Fiber Tripod is made of feather-weight spun-fiber which is about half the weight of aluminum, but stronger than steel and provides motion-free support with superior transportability. With the legs fully extended the height is 55 inches (without the head). The legs can extend to 150 degrees for lower stable position. Center rise is an additional 12 inches.
The Pistol Grip head takes the ease of spotting or photographing on a tripod to a new level. The key is the trigger handle. It has an oversize trigger release that you squeeze to freely move the head. When you move the scope or camera to the desired position just release the trigger and the ballhead locks firmly into place at any angle. A convenient switch on the body locks and unlocks the quick release shoe, which means that the quick release plate can rotate 360 degrees and can be locked at any point.
The gun rest is a rubber overmolded V-Yoke that creates an ultra-stable non-slip rest for your firearm or camera.
