The 3 Legged Thing X2.1 Eddie Evolution 2 CF Tripod Legs is a stylish and extremely compact travel tripod system, the smallest in 3LT's 29mm Pro range of tripods. The system extends from a minimum height of 4.72" to a maximum height of 64.56". Folded down to 15.74", the X2.1 Eddie is a versatile professional camera support system that fits in most airline carry-on bags.

The X2.1 Eddie's legs are composed of 3LT's Stealth carbon fiber for superbly lightweight strength – the tripod system weighs just 2.87 lb and supports up to 26.45 lb, to accommodate any DSLR with most lenses.

One of the tripod legs unscrews to become a monopod. The center column is both removable and reversible to accommodate shooting from the lowest of low angles. Leg angles can be set at three different positions. A tripod head is not included.

8-core Stealth Carbon Fiber legs, and 10-core Columns for smoother operation, plus more lateral and torsional strength.
Re-engineered leg mechanisms, for greater stability, as well as smoother and easier use.
Bronze anodizing and triple machined magnesium alloy parts for a smoother finish.
Includes hook for hanging a counterweight (not included) from the center column, for extra stability in windy conditions

      Comments about 3 Legged Thing X2.1 Eddie Evolution 2 CF Tripod Legs:

      I was on the market for a compact and versatile tripod. I found exciting reviews about 3 Legged Thing, particularly Brian. But Eddie is about the same size and weight, but it can carry a heavier load, so I ordered it. It came quickly.I am giving it only 4 stars, because I had difficulty loosening one part in order to pull out the center column. The instructions were simple and well-illustrated. I use the RRS BH55 ball head with this tripod. At full height, it suits me well, since I am not tall. At the shortest setting with standard tripod spread, I can get good close-ups close to the ground, and with the legs spread out, it can go down very low to the ground. Extending or shortening the legs is very easy, almost second-nature.This tripod and ball head is stable and can hold my Canon 5D with the 100-400 mm zoom, MPe65 macro set-up, or my Fujifilm X-E2 system for bracketed shots. The tripod comes with its own case and some basic tools. One leg can be removed to be used as a monopod.
