3 Legged Thing E3RICK overview

  • 1Description

Support up to 44 lb with the EVO3 Punks Rick Carbon Fiber Tripod and Mohawk Ball Head from 3 Legged Thing. The Rick is a compact tripod that extends to 58.9" and weighs just 2.9 lb. With the center column removed and the legs opened to 80°, the quick-release plate on the ball head sits just 7.4" above the ground. The legs fold up around the ball head, which combined with the 5-section design, allows the tripod to fold to just 13.4".

The legs can be independently locked in 23, 55, and 80° angles, and each leg's height is controlled by ParaLock twist locks. One of the tripod's legs can be removed and used with the center column as a monopod that extends up to 54" high. For low-angle photography, the center column can be reversed to get your camera down to nearly ground level. A carrying case is included to protect the tripod during transport.

The included Mohawk ball head is a sturdy head with separate locks to control the 360° panning and the ball movement. A notch in the head allows for simple portrait positioning of your camera. The head includes a square quick-release plate that is compatible with most Arca-style clamps, as well as the Peak Design Capture Clip. A bull's eye bubble level helps ensure that your camera is aligned with the horizon.

Tri-Mount Plate
The tri-mount plate on the top of the center column features six 1/4"-20 threaded holes for mounting various accessories such as lighting or a microphone. The plate can be rotated and locked in place so that the three grooves align with the three legs for compact folding.
ParaLock Leg Locks
The twist locks on the tripod's legs feature a ParaLock system which prevents them from twisting past a 1/4 turn.
D-Ring & Carabiner
Instead of the traditional ballast hook, the Brian tripod has a D-ring and a carabiner assembly to hang a stabilizing counterweight.
Detachable Rubber Feet
The rubber feet have a 1/4"-20 thread so that they can be unscrewed and replaced with new feet, steel spikes, or sand/snow shoes.
Carbon Fiber
The tripod is made from 86% Japanese Skyflex prepreg carbon fiber construction

    3 Legged Thing E3RICK reviews

    EVO3 Punks Rick Carbon Fiber Tripod and Mohawk Ball Head is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falling apart Got that tripod as a replacement for my trusty Gitzo, as I wanted a light weight good quality tripod. The tripod is a mess, very difficult to handle and with pieces falling from it like the rubber feet and the central column. The QR plate is listed as Arca design, but my Blackrapid fastner won't fit on it (it fits like a charm with all other Arca plates)Simply forget long exposures as even the slightest breeze shakes the tripod heavily. The ball lock is to weak and it won't hold a 2 kg camera and lens in the position you desire with out creeping down few millimeters. I'd say its no different from a $ tripod other than the fancy Colors.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Serious quality control issues - constantly falling apart I bought the product because of seemingly good reviews, style and colours inspired by nature, size and weight.Out the box, the tripod was falling apart. I constantly have had to reassemble the tripod, as more and more parts became loose. 3LT brags about the modular design, which comes in handy if you want to replace a part, or put it together yourself for cleaning purposes. Sadly, I found myself rebuilding the tripod constantly as it fell apart on me, juggling my D750.The monopod function of the tripod broke within a couple months. Even though it is within warranty, 3LT seems stubborn about refunding me my money, despite a clearly defective tripod.Looks like I'll use my cheap @ tripods again... Very disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 stars with some misgivings My first order arrived and I immediately noticed that the center pole would not lock properly. BH excellent customer service meant I could easily exchange the item. However the replacement arrived missing the D-ring for the center pole. So I question the QC from the manufacturer which may reflect in the price. I also own a Really Right Stuff tripod and ballhead which has excellent build quality but cost 3-4x as much. Otherwise after a couple of days of playing with it, I find it to be very lightweight, compact, and otherwise solid in build. The design details and the compatibility with Peak Design quick-release plates is a nice bonus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool tripod with a cool name The EVO3 Punks Rick Carbon Fiber Tripod and Mohawk Ball Head are the answers to my continued puzzlement about the right tripod to hike and travel with. I've tried large stable tripods, but they are too heavy, and a gorillapod is not particularly useful unless you have an abundance of picnic tables around to sit it on. So, this gives me the height, stability and portability that I've been looking for. It's well constructed, solid and yet attaches unobtrusively to my backpack. My gear is a Sony 7rII and I have a 70-200 lens that is not a problem for this versatile (converts to a monopod) tripod.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Huge step backwards from last gen I also have the last generation Vyv. The EVO3 has sturdier legs, everything else is worse. The tripod is harder to use then previous, the center column tri flange plate is awful and the head is a big step backwards. The tri flange gets in the way of the panning knob on the head so you cannot tighten it without pinching your fingers. Therefore you are forced to make little quarter turns. The entire head/plate assembly is difficult to remover where as previous it was very quick and easy to remove the head to get the center column out of the way for low angle shots. The new setup adds a lot of hassle to the process. The tiny QR plate is a pain and the Capture compatible plate is useless. I have a Capture system, it comes with a plate ship a real plate with the tripod. Instead they have found a way to cheap out and give you a tiny plate with no set screws to act as a safety to prevent the camera from sliding off the head. The really bad part is the lack of quality control and customer service. That took off an extra star. My tripod arrived with a too long screw holding the clamp plate to the head. This meant that the plate was wobbly and loose. The opposite of what you need in a tripod. I went out and purchased the correct screw to make it work. The $ on the screw was not the end of the world but was annoying. Also the realization that they have no QC at the factory is scary. When I alerted 3LT of the issue I did not even get a sorry you got a bad tripod. I was not looking for my dollar back, but some sort of sorry about that would have been nice. Guess they really don't care about the customer or product. It is an expensive cheap tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid little tripod I have been using this tripod for a while now and am really enjoying it. I have taken this tripod on a few high demand / high abuse trips and it has held up very well. It is solid and compact and very easy to carry while hiking. Another pleasant surprise has been maintenance. I have dissembled and cleaned it thoroughly and it was a breeze. One final note, I had a small issue with the tripod when it arrived. I contacted 3LT customer support and received customer service that truly exceeded my expectations.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from SMALL BUT NOT TOO STURDY GOOD FOR TRAVEL, BUT I WOULDN'T USE IT IF IT WEREN'T FOR SEVERE SIZE AND WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS ON A TRIP!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very compact I was looking for a travel tripod that packed down small and light -- and this certainly does. Slips into camera backpack and gives me a moderately sturdy foundation when I'm out and about. It obviously isn't as sturdy as a full-sized tripod, especially when fully extended. Consider hanging some weight from the center column. Quick to set up, and multiple leg angles allow you to get really low as needed. All in all a great option if this is what you're looking for.
