Gitzo Mountaineer Overview

The GT2543L Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long) from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT2543L has a load capacity of 39.7 lb, extends to a maximum height of 70.5", and folds down to 24" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 6.3". Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

I forgot to mention. When traveling, I remove the center shaft (you have to unscrew the hook at the bottom of the shaft, then the folded up legs are a couple inches shorter (and much lighter) and effortlessly straps to the side of the backpack.

question

Is this tripod sturdy enough for a Nikon 600/4 with Wimberley WH-200 head?
Asked by: Anonymous
I suppose it would work under ideal circumstances, such as setting up on a level and firm surface such as a lawn or even in a blind where you can carefully set up. It might not have the torsional strength for irregular surfaces, such as a cobble beach where you're picking up and moving quickly with the lens on the tripod as you follow your subject. My opinion is speculative rather than being based on actually using the 600mm f4.
