The 3 Legged Thing X2.1 Eddie Evolution 2 CF Tripod System w/AirHed 2 Ball Head (Blue) is a stylish and extremely compact travel tripod system, the smallest in 3LT's 29mm Pro range of tripods. With the ball head attached to the tripod, 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; at their widest and with the column removed, the AirHed 2's camera plate sits only 4.7" from the ground.
The AirHed 2 is a sturdy magnesium alloy ball head that features separate control knobs for pan lock, tilt lock, and Arca-style clamping of the included quick-release plate. There's also a tension control built into the tilt-lock knob.
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.
Redesigned AirHed with ultra smooth panning, enlarged locking knob for greater grip and new triple bubble system, lighter and smaller casing and now with 35kg load capacity.
Includes hook for hanging a counterweight (not included) from the center column, for extra stability in windy conditions
