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.
