Gitzo Mountaineer 1542 with GH2720 Birding Head - 12/28/2015

by Paul from WI

I purchased this tripod to use with a Vortex Razor 20-60x85, and the Gitzo birding head GH2720. The twist locks on the legs are fantastic, and can all be twisted at the same time for quick opening. They're much easier to use than flip levers for my arthritic thumbs. The quality of all components is impressive, from the CF legs, to the magnesium spider. While it was a vast improvement over my previous tripod, and very usable for an 85mm scope, I ended up exchanging for the 2542 Mountaineer for increased stability at maximum magnification, which I often need for lake birding. The stability difference is noticeable, though not huge. The 1542 has a smaller base than the GH2720 head, and does not have a set screw (grub screw) for securing the head. The 1542 would be a perfect fit for the GH1720 birding head.
