About Redged TSC-424W

The Redged TSC-424W Ultimate 4-Section Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod is a lightweight travel tripod with a handsome wood finish that supports a good deal of weight and folds up extremely small for easy transport in backpacks and carry-on bags. The legs fold upward 180Deg. so that the feet form somewhat of a cradle for a photography head (not included) - you can attach many different head models and still not add to the tripod's folded length of 16.1".

The TSC-424W includes many features that professionals expect: anti-rotation legs for quick setup, a relatively high load capacity of 17.5 lb, a reversible center column, retractable spikes in the rubber feet and a counterweight hook for attaching a ballast for added stability during windy shoots.

In addition, the twist locks are designed to prevent sand and dust from invading the legs. Composed of carbon fiber, the 4-section legs and center column extend to a maximum height of 55.5". At only 2.2 lb, the TSC-424W is a great choice for backpackers and other traveling photographers.

Redged TSC-424W Features

  • Carbon Tubes: Leg tubes consist of a unique combination of carbon fiber material. The result: extreme strength and rigidity, with a high degree of vibration reduction
  • Non-Rotation Legs: Because of the non-rotation system, all locks of each leg can be opened at the same time, in one movement. Setup happens in a matter of seconds
  • Easy Lock Rings: The Redged ring-locking system keeps dust and sand from entering the tripod, ensuring perfect operation. It requires no extra power to achieve a safe locking
  • Three Leg Positions: Besides the normal position, the tripod offers the extra-low position for low viewpoints and ground-level macro subjects and a middle position for table-top photography and macro photography (flowers, insects, etc.)
  • Expandable Center Column: A retractable dual-section design makes the center column extra-compact, which enables the tripod to achieve lower viewpoints
  • Stability Hook: The counterweight hook is designed for attaching extra weight (a photo bag, or a bag with sand or stones), to increase the stability of the tripod, especially during windy conditions
  • Reversible Mounting Screw: Reversible screw has both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads, so any photo head or other accessory can be attached
  • Rubber Feet with Spikes: Universal feet with retractable spikes, suitable for all surfaces
  • Extra-Compact Traveler Design: This tripod features a "traveler" design - the legs fold upward 180deg., the feet ending up a few inches past the top of the center column. This means you can add a head (not included), assuming it's compact enough, without adding to the tripod's total folded length

All that was described


from Arizona  -  Photo Enthusiast

For the price, this is a really good CF tripod. It is lightweight. Wish it folded a little smaller for travel. Seemed sturdy and easy to set up but when spreading the legs to the second detent, the device does "wobble" a bit. It the standard position, however, it is rock solid. No thrilled with the color.


Go by the specs, not the video


from Bainbridge Island, WA

I got this as a light-weight travel tripod. It certainly compresses to a small package. I like the many features mentioned in the printed specs, especially its ability to fulfill many tasks. However, the VIDEO makes you think you'll be getting pads on the legs and a bubble level, as well. Not so. Still, it is a great tripod for the price.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is the center col carbon fiber as well?
wayne z  Thanks. From the picture, the center column looks like carbon fiber, unlike the picture of 424 Ultimate. Since the 2 versions are almost identical in specs, you must be right.
JAN T  Is a head included? It's in the "combo" section, but the photos are tripod-only.
DENNIS J  Sorry I did not receive this unit.
Shopper  The specs on your site do not match what the specs on the manufacturers site show. Is this a conversion issue. Should I take the manufactures specs as source of truth?
DENNIS J  Sorry I did not purchase this unit!
