Product Highlights
  • For Series 5 Systematic Gitzo Tripods
  • 4 Sections
  • Retractable Ballast Hook
  • Reversible Top Screw

This Gitzo Systematic Series 5 Extra Long 6x Carbon Fiber Rapid Center Column is designed for use with Series 5 Systematic 6x tripods. The extra long column adds almost 70" to a Series 5 Gitzo and since it's interchangeable it can be inverted to take full advantage of the tripod's independent leg spread so that you can shoot close to the ground without restriction.

Carbon fiber material is rigid and resistant to torsion. It's also lighter than aluminum and not as cold to the touch in inclement weather. The wide-diameter tubing of this column maintains the strength of a Systematic tripod at all heights. The rapid column lives up to its name by sliding freely in the tripod collar. A large wing-nut locks and unlocks the critical first section while the others use the tried and true Gitzo twist lock which has been enhanced with upgraded power discs. The bottom of the column features a retractable ballast hook while the top offers a reversible 1/4"-20 - 3/8"-16 head mounting screw.
