The Libec RS-350M Professional 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod System w/Mid-Level Spreader rises to the challenge of today's proliferation of smaller, more sophisticated HD cameras. Combining high performance with affordability, the RS system improves on past tripod designs by offering a new drag system that allows for smoother pans and tilts, especially at the start and stop of each move. Image wobble is further reduced by a new tripod design that's less prone to twisting, while a superb counterbalance system keeps your camera perfectly balanced at any angle.

The RS-350M system brings together an ideal combo of elements: the RH35 head, with its 3-step drag, 20 lb (9kg) load capacity, and 90°/-70° tilt angles; the 2-stage RT30B aluminum tripod, with its 75mm ball mount and 59.5" (150cm) maximum height (65.5" with head); a BR-2B mid-level spreader, which holds the legs in place on uneven surfaces; PH-4B pan handle; and an RC-30 carrying case to keep all the pieces secure and ready for travel.

Ideal Counterbalance
Complete counterbalance makes it possible to stop the camera precisely at any tilt angle.
New Drag System
The new drag system mechanism makes for a quantum leap in operability when panning or tilting. There is also a significant reduction in the wobbling of the image that occurs at the start of a pan, as well as in the backlash that occurs at the end of panning. Enjoy stress-free camerawork for the first time.
Giant Leap in Low-temperature Usage
Use this unit in temperatures as low as -40° C / -40° F. Ordinary torque performance is possible even in frigid climates.
Drag Mode: Free Plus 3 Steps
Select torque strength based on your preferences and on each shooting situation's demands.
New Tripod Design = Outstanding Rigidity
The newly designed tripod eliminates wobbling of the image caused by tripod twisting.

              This tripod is exceptional. You only ever read glowing reviews, and with very good reason!

              The fluid system is faultless, perfectly smooth starts and finishes. NO jitter. Wihether panning tilting or doing both simultaneously.

              Counterbalance is a dream come true.

              Build is excellent. Even the bag ot comes with os good. About to shoot a feture on it, and I'm sure this is going to be and eliable tool for many years to come. At this price point? It's simply incredible and nothing gets ner it.

                  I'm a 40 year film professional filmmaker, but I'm not a tripod guy, I mostly hand hold, so I don't like spending a fortune on a tripod. The RS-350M is small, relatively light and amazingly effective for a reasonable cost unit. I'm currently using it with an AF100 with prime lenses, matte box, etc and it balances perfectly.

                    Comments about Libec RS-350M Professional 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod System w/Mid-Level Spreader:

                    This is a great tripod from an often overlooked brand. Libec did an amazing job on the RS series. This may not be the best for a really light rig though as the counter balance on the lowest setting is still pretty strong.
