Works great with my Vortex Razor scope and its light enough to carry in the field.

Great Value with High-End Features - 02/16/2013

by Bob H. from Solon, Ohio

Been using this tripod/head combination here in Florida for bird photography at Merritt Island, Viera Wetlands and other coastal locations. Used with a 500MM lens and a Nikon D7000 camera, the tripod is sturdy, not heavy, and quick and easy to set up. The head included with the tripod is a new design, supplied with a long V dovetailed plate much like a Kirk or Really Right Stuff plate (they fit this mount, by the way). A fool-proof locking mechanism keeps the plate from sliding off the head once it is attached a certain distance, and a very easy to reach lever is provided for releasing it. It's located next to the tightening knob for the plate. A clever "push down" lever releases the center column for height adjustment, and the center column is reversible for close-to-the-ground photography. A unique leg-spreading release mechanism makes that kind of photography for wildflowers and small critters easy. All in all, this Vortex Skyline tripod introduces a number of new, cutting edge design features in a tripod priced less than some plates and heads alone. An excellent tripod for our use down here in FL, and its construction suggests that it will last a long time in the field.

Good tripod, good price - 12/26/2012

This tripod is sturdy, and reasonably light for the price. The leg locking clamps are easy to use, and the fluid head works well with both a large and small scope. The mounting plate is extra-long, and can slide forward and back, for adjusting the balance of the scope.
If you don't have the money for an ultra-light carbon-fiber tripod, this one will do just fine, for hundreds of dollars less.
