The Abeo 243AB Tripod With Ballhead from Vanguard is a stable, lightweight, and reliable magnesium die-cast tripod equipped with the popular magnesium SBH-50 ballhead. It supports up to 13.22 lb and has a maximum height of 5.15'. This sleek tripod folds down to 24.62" for convenient transport and storage. Quick-flip leg locks and a hexagonal-shaped center column make set-up fast and easy. The legs can each adjust individually to a 25-, 50-, or 80-degree angle, and the rubber feet provide stability on slippery surface. A low-angle adapter makes getting those unique low shots easier than ever. Thick foam on the upper part of each leg makes the tripod easy and comfortable to handle even in cold, wet weather.
