Weight savings worth the money
Jeff from IL
I have been using a metal Manfrotto tripod that weighs 7 lbs with a 128RC head that I use with a Swarovski 80mm scope. After a lot of thinking, I decided it was worth spending the money to upgrade to these legs and the Manfrotto 700RC2 head to save 3 lbs. The legs are an upgrade in performance over my metal legs. The leg locks work well and the carbon fiber is nicer besides being 2 lbs lighter. The 700RC2 head is 1 lb lighter than the 128RC head. Manfrotto has an excellent system for attaching the head to the legs. The quick release on the head is excellent. With my 7 lb tripod, I would often leave my scope in the car. Saving 3 lbs is big when you are going very far. The cost of this tripod is small compared to the price of the scope. With this lighter tripod, I am getting a lot more use of my scope.

Purchased Manfrotto 190CX3 Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs for the wife for her new spotting scope to keep her spotting scope system under seven pounds. Helping her carry with ease when we are out and about in the field. One of the biggest reasons for purchasing from Eagle Optics is prices competitive with other big online companies. Eagle Optics tells you online that the produce is available and ready to ship or unavailable. Other online companies do not tell you that the item is unavailable until you purchase item. Eagle Optics shipping very fast!
Manfrotto Carbon Tripod

A friend recommended this tripod, and I love it. Much lighter than my previous Manfrotto tripod. I will order the tripod head after I get past the holiday spending frenzy. I would definitely recommend to anyone, and Eagle Optics always has the best price.
An excellent tripod for birding
Candy from Houston, Texas
I have an old Manfrotto steel tripod that I have used for years (bought it from Eagle optics too) and I have been totally pleased with it. But for traveling I wanted to move to a lighter tripod. I had originally ordered a swarovski tripod from another vendor and had to return it, due to leg clips not locking. So I went back to what I am familiar with.... Eagle Optics and Manfrotto... and decided on this tripod with the 128 RC micro fluid tripod head. This is excellent!! My current scope is a full size 80mm scope and the tripod supports this easily. The tripod is light weight and still sturdy in the wind, even when digi-scoping. It is shorter than some of the other tripods but I'm 5'-2" so that is not an issue for me. This tripod is good for overseas travel and for all around birding at home. In my opinion this is a great tripod and the fact that it is relatively inexpensive in comparison to other carbon fiber tripods, is just icing on the cake!
190CX3 Carbon Fiber Tripod
Jim McCauley from Flagstaff, AZ.
I purchased the 190CX3 carbon fiber tripod legs for use with a spotting scope. I needed a lighter, more adjustable set up without the coldness of aluminum. This tripod more than "fills the bill." It is the perfect length to fit in a daypack, is very solid, and very adjustable. It is a perfect fit for me.
Nice Lightweight Tripod
Vic Taylor from Grayslake, IL
I wanted to replace my heavy, 4.4 lb Swarovski tripod with a lighter weight one on which to mount my Swarovski ATS 65HD spotting scope. I selected the Manfrotto 190CX3 carbon fiber tripod based on an Audubon magazine article. This reduced the tripod weight by 1/3 to 2.9 lbs representing the significant reduction in carry weight which I was looking for. This seems to be a solid, sturdy tripod.
