The Redged RTC-332 Steady 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a versatile, lightweight tripod that supports a lot of weight and extends tall. Composed of rigid, strong carbon fiber, the 3-section legs and center column extend to a generous maximum height of 69.7".

The RTC-332 includes the features that professionals expect: Anti-rotation legs for quick setup, a high load capacity of 35.3 lb, retractable spikes in no-slip rubber feet, and a counter-weight hook for attaching a ballast for added stability during windy shoots. In addition, both the twist locks and the center column are designed to prevent sand and dust from invading the RTC-332. At only 4 lb, this Steady tripod is an excellent choice for on-the-go photographers who need a tall tripod.

Carbon Tubes
Leg tubes consist of a unique combination of carbon fiber material. The result: extreme strength and rigidity, with a high grade of vibration reduction
Non-Rotation Legs
Because of the non-rotation system, all locks of each leg can be opened at the same time, in one movement. Setup happens in a matter of seconds
Easy Lock Rings
The Redged ring-locking system keeps dust and sand from entering the tripod, ensuring perfect operation. It requires no extra power to achieve a safe locking
Column-Locking Ring with Wings
The wings ensure tight locking of the center column when heavy photographic gear is placed on the tripod. Rubber sealing prevents sand from entering the locking mechanism
Three Leg Positions
Besides the normal position, the tripod offers the extra-low position for low viewpoints and ground-level macro subjects, and a middle position for table-top photography and macro photography (flowers, insects, etc.)
Stability Hook
The counterweight hook is designed for attaching extra weight (a photo bag, or a bag with sand or stones), to increase the stability of the tripod, especially during windy conditions
Reversible Mounting Screw
Reversible screw has both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads, so any photo head or other accessory can be attached
Rubber Feet with Spikes
Universal feet with retractable spikes, suitable for all surfaces
Leveling Bubble
High-precision leveling bubble makes for perfectly leveled shots
All-Weather Foam Grip
Luxury leg covers for easy handling and comfort in cold temperatures
Tripod Bag Included
Supplied with a high-quality tripod bag

      Comments about Redged RTC-332 Steady 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      Tall, but too much play in the leg sections compared to my gitzo and the benro it replaces. Very light for its size, but just doesn't seem solid. Tests OK (using laser pointer mounted to camera) if I don't fully extend the legs, don't extend center post and hang weight on the hook --which is how I planned to use it. No literature or warranty info included. Looking at Redged's site is suspect there may be no warranty. Legs do not have spikes. Just feels cheap. Hope my initial impressions are wrong. Serial number in single digits, hummm.

      Light, tall, but just OK build quality

        Comments about Redged RTC-332 Steady 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

        I wanted 3 section legs that hit eye level without using the center post and this meets that with inches to spare. Seems even lighter than 4 lbs. Unfortunately, the build quality doesn't inspire confidence like my smaller glitz or the benro this pod replaced. Leg tubes wobble a bit as they slide out and the spider is pretty light weight. Comes with a nice case that just fits with a marlins ball head attached. Legs do not have spikes, but that's OK by me. No registration, warranty card, or literature of any sort included. No warranty info on edged.com. Oh, and a minor pet peeve, but would it break the bank to put foam on the third leg? Hope my first impressions are wrong.
