    Comments about Gitzo G1220.129B3 Stainless Steel Spike Set (3) for Gitzo Tripods:

    The kit comes with two sets of rubber feet and two different sizes of washers. The feet are nice and grippy, even on wet stone, and the spikes do their job well. The rubber feet attach firmly over the spikes so there's no chance of them falling off.

    I was surprised by how heavy these spikes are. There's a lot of mass in these 1.5" stainless steel spikes. This is great for landscape work but you may be inclined to replace them with the standard feet when you want to go light.

    The nut for tightening these is metric so you may want to get a 12mm hex key to attach/remove the spikes. I keep a small one in my tripod bad.

    There are titanium spikes available by other manufacturers that fit Gitzo legs but they are 4x the price and shorter. If weight is an issue and price is no object then titanium spikes may be something to consider.

    For the price and versatility I feel like these Gitzo spikes are just the ticket, especially for landscape photography.

        Comments about Gitzo G1220.129B3 Stainless Steel Spike Set (3) for Gitzo Tripods:

        I was looking for a source of spikes for my RRS tripod, and these are just the ticket. The spikes are not too aggressive, and you get three small aluminum spacers with rubber feet and three large washers with rubber feet. You can choose which set up fits your tripod. Keeps my tripod from moving around when I'm shooting in the shifting soils in my region of the world.

          Comments about Gitzo G1220.129B3 Stainless Steel Spike Set (3) for Gitzo Tripods:

          These screwed right in to the tripod legs and fit perfect. I use them in sandy areas and they help stabalize the tripod a substantial amount. i also use them in windy conditions because it helps keep the tripod from moving. a simple add on to a tripod to make it work that much more for you.

            Very solid and robust spikes and excellent rubber feet, much better than the ones which were supplied with my tripod. My only problem is that I am disabled with weak arm muscles and the rubber caps fit so tightly I struggle to remove them. For most people that would be a plus, but for me it's a challenge.

                Comments about Gitzo G1220.129B3 Stainless Steel Spike Set (3) for Gitzo Tripods:

                First off, Gitzo should include this with their tripods. It's not like they don't charge enough for their tripods to include it. You get the rubber covers in two sizes, which is nice. They are much beeter then the feet that come with the tripods. Don't worry about them falling off or coming loose, they fit tight. When using the spikes in rocks, gravel or dirt you get a very solid platform for the tripod.

                The first set I received had a flaw with one of the washers, no threads. As usual the people at B&H fixed this fast! They are one of the best in the business.

                          Just used these in soft snow and ice in Yosemite on a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod and they set in well and it was easy to brush off the snow as opposed to having the snow/dirt get stuck inside the threads of the retractable type spikes. Have not used them in soft mud yet. The caps are a little stiff putting on and off so far, but since I almost always shoot outside, I will probably be using the spikes uncapped most of the time. It was also handy using the tripod with these sturdy spiked feet as a supporting staff while walking across ice. You need to be more mindful to not poke anyone with your tripod with these pointy tips. The kit actually came with two different outside diameter caps. Perhaps for different substrates but it also means you have a second set if the first ever wears out.

                            Comments about Gitzo G1220.129B3 Stainless Steel Spike Set (3) for Gitzo Tripods:

                            I bought these after I lost one of the original feet off my Gitzo GT2530. They fit perfectly and feel nice and snug, although I have taken the recommendation of other reviewers and used a little of the blue loctite to prevent losing any again. I would also agree with a previous review that the rubber on these works a little better on wood flooring- it's not as hard, so the feet slide around less.

                            Comments about Gitzo G1220.129B3 Stainless Steel Spike Set (3) for Gitzo Tripods:

                            The benefits of the spikes are well covered by the other reviews, but one unexpected benefit of the rubber feet that came with my spike-order is that they grip significantly better on wood floors than the rubber feet that came with my 3541. My 3541 is only a few months old, so I don't think I can attribute the difference to the age of the rubber. The rubber on these feet also feels harder than the rubber on the standard feet, resulting in a more snug feel on hard floors. And of course the spikes are very nice, too. The washers that came with my set are black, not silver as in the picture, and match the tripod nicely. Everything screws together with precision.

                                  These spikes are very effective on soft ground outside and on carpet inside. Also, they come with rubber boots that fit over them very tightly so that they could never fall off. Just another great product from Gitzo.
