The Pro CF-933 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Slik is a carbon fiber leg set that is lighter than aluminum and extremely tough due to the 8-layer construction. When fully extended, it reaches a height of 80.3", and it has a removable and reversible 14.9" center column. This leg set folds down to 29.2" and weighs just 5.4 lb, making it easy to pack ad travel with. The three leg sections are secured and loosened with twist locks. Because the legs do not rotate, all three leg stages may be unlocked at once by twisting the large rubber grips with one hand for fast setup. The PRO CF-933 has a generous load capacity of up to 22 lb, suitable for use with professional camera bodies and/or heavy lenses.
