The 3 Legged Thing X4a Jack Evolution 2 Aluminum Alloy Tripod with AirHed 1 Ball Head is a stylish compact tripod that extends to 83", features a removable leg, leg-spreading, and a reversible center column that allows for low angle or macro shooting down to 9.0". The removable leg when topped with the included 4.0" column extension and the tripod's mounting plate and ball head, becomes a 60.9" monopod for gun-and-run scenarios.

The X4a Jack's legs are constructed from Stealth Aluminum Alloy which offers excellent lateral and torsional strength while reducing the weight to only 4.18 lb, while providing the stability of heavier tripods and supporting cameras up to 17.6 lb. It folds down to just 21.5" for easy packing and comes with a soft case and strap for storage and transport.

The included Evolution 2 AirHed 1 Ball Head is an ideal match to the X4a Jack legs. Weighing in at just under 1.0 lb including its quick release plate, the AirHed 1 supports up to 17.6 lb so stability is never an issue. The head features a bubble level, pan lock and clutch to adjust the tension on the ball.

    Comments about 3 Legged Thing X4a Jack Evolution 2 Aluminum Alloy Tripod with AirHed 1 Ball Head (Black):

    I just got my Jack tripod a few week ago and use it all of the time. I have two tripods and a mono pod that has been replaced by it. I have not found as of yet anything that I do that it can"t do. It's solid easy to pack on trips up the mountains or thru the woods. It also works well along the river banks where things are very uneven and rugged. great buy.

      Comments about X4a Jack Evolution 2 Aluminum Alloy Tripod with AirHed 1 Ball Head (Black):

      The X4a Jack Evolution 2 is significantly improved from its predecessor X4 Jack. The legs hold firm when fully extended. I like everything except the new AirHed, which is not as smooth as the previous model. Overall, great look and design, just wish they had same inside technology as AirHead 1 for the ball head.
