The SLIK PRO CF-633 weighs just 2.1 lbs. making it an easy backpacking companion. It extends to a max height of 64.2 inches and folds down to a compact 21.3 inches for travel.
The 8-layer carbon fiber legs have 3 sections that quickly deploy and lock using 2 twist locks that are easy to operate with or without gloves. The legs Anti-Rotational System (ARS) is crafted into the leg locks and does not permit individual leg sections to rotate inside each other.
Each leg also has an independent leg-angle lock on the collar. This allows the legs to be set to one of 3 angles, varying the height, stance, and stability of the tripod.
The center column has 4 important features:
- The thread post is reversible so it can be set to 3/8” or ¼ 20” male threads allowing it to work with any type of head without the need for an adapter. It takes less than 2 minutes to change and all tools and instructions are included with the tripod.
- The column can be separated into two sections by simply unscrewing the bottom section. This helps reduce weight when needed but more importantly allows you to set the tripod to the lowest possible position off the ground.
- The column can be reversed so the head can be positioned between the legs instead of on top. This lets you position the camera very close to the ground or provide a straight down view of your subject.
- Integrated, retractable hook at the bottom of the center column to hang your camera bag for increased stability on uneven terrain or windy conditions.
