The Berlebach Model 8023C Wood Tripod Legs with Center Column (Camouflage Finish) will appeal to the discriminating shooter. It is a beautifully finished piece of German craftsmanship, made by Berlebach, who has been making wooden ash tripods for over a century. Painted in a forest green camouflage pattern, this tripod is ideal for the outdoor observer and photographer.
Handling a wood tripod in extremes of heat or cold is quite a different experience than that of a metal or even carbon fiber tripod. But the best reason to choose wood over any other material is for its incredible ability to absorb vibrations. A wooden tripod placed in a shallow stream may be vibrating quite a bit where the legs meet the water, but up at the column it is rock steady.
The 8023C is a 3-section model and features a sliding center-column which adds additional height adjustment. These center-columns are made from precision-drawn light-metal tubing and are built into the tripod to fit precisely. Use of an extra-short center column (10 cm) enables near-ground-level work.
