Product Highlights
  • Adds Height to Gitzo Systematic Tripods
  • Retractable Hook For Counterweights
  • Gitzo Power Disc & Safety Catch Design
  • Simple Twist Lock/Unlock Mechanism

The aluminum Systematic Series 2/3/4 Rapid Center Column from Gitzo has a wide-diameter column that maintains the strength of Systematic series 2/3/4 tripods no matter how high is it set. The rapid column is locked and unlocked by a simple twist mechanism similar to Gitzo's tripod legs, sliding quickly within the tripod shoulder, providing the same strong and solid locking mechanism under heavy loads.

This design is longer and features new components compared to older Systematic center columns. Gitzo's Power Disc with head-locking screws and retractable hook allow stabilizing counterweights to hang from the center column. It is also compatible with the safety catch feature of Gitzo's updated Systematic tripods. A safety latch on the base of the head prevents it from falling out until a button on the underside is pressed - providing secure, accident-proof support, even when swapping center components.

    Comments about Gitzo Systematic Series 2/3/4 Aluminum Rapid Center Column:

    To make fine adjustments in the vertical position of the camera. Particularly useful when shooting birds from a blind. Like all Gitzo products, it is heavy and amazingly well made. With the legs and column stretched all out it is over 7ft high and still very sturdy.
