Product Highlights
  • For RH25 & RH35 Heads
  • 75mm Ball
  • Supports 55 lb (25 kg)

The Libec RT30B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod sports an all-new design over earlier models, with an increased maximum height and a 75mm ball diameter that ensures torsional rigidity. Stability is further enhanced by the use of aluminum die casting material for the tripod's upper leg casing.

Weighing only 5.7 lbs (2.6kg), the RT30B supports a payload of up to 55 lb (25 kg) and can extend from 16 - 59.5" (40.5 - 150.5 cm), making it ideal for small- to mid-sized HD cameras used in a range of broadcast and production situations.

          Comments about Libec RT30B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod:

          Cheaper, more durable alternative to equivalent, 2-stage Manfrotto legs. Sturdy construction with adjustable spreader width and leg height. Tiers slide out smoothly. These legs are on the heavy side but they're stable. Great legs for people who shoot in demanding environments and frequently destroy legs yet don't want to hurt their wallet buying expensive replacements every year.

          Comments about Libec RT30B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod:

          I have purchased three different types of Libec Tripods and been disappointed with all of them. Before owning this own I had a T72, working with a budget trying to get something that wouldn't break the bank. And while it was affordable, several things on the tripod broke within three months of ownership. The mid level spreader lock and release broke, the bottom leg slipped out of the stopper and would frequently fall out (even when using good practice of opening from the ground up). Most recently the tightner on one of the legs started to fail and would not stay tight. They are very affordable, but you get what you pay for. Spend a little extra if you can and go with a different brand.

            Well done for the price, light enough to carry around. Fast to open and fold. The only thing is the stability. Because it's light it's not the best stable tripod but the spreader help à lot to it.
