The TQC-14 from Really Right Stuff is a compact and lightweight Series 1 carbon fiber tripod designed with travelers, hikers, and backpackers in mind.
Constructed from Really Right Stuff's patented carbon fiber weave, the TQC-14 weighs in at an impressive 2.6 lb and can safely support up to 25 lb. It's 4-section leg design, along with an integrated rapid center column, allows the tripod to reach a maximum height of 58.5" or, with the center column removed, lower down to a minimum working height of just 3.3".
Quick set-up and break-down is facilitated by easy-to-use twist locks, which require just a quarter rotation to unlock and re-lock each leg section and help to maintain the tripod's slim folded silhouette. Additionally, when traveling with or storing the tripod, the entire support can fold down to just 17.7" in length, small enough to fit inside a backpack or suitcase.
Each leg is attached to the tripod's collar via an offset leg joint that helps to evenly distribute heavy loads and maintain the tripod's rigidity. The joints and collar itself are constructed of lightweight anodized aluminum which, aside from lending inherent strength to the tripod, also provides it with natural wear and corrosion resistance. Each one of the three leg joints also features a ratcheting angle stop which automatically locks into place as the legs are folded downward into "standard" position.
The TQC-14's feet are a unique teardrop shape, which prevents the leg sections from touching the ground at even the lowest height settings and the most unusual angles. Their rubber exterior provides a non-slip grip on nearly any surface and can be used both indoors and outdoors without concern. For users wishing to change the native rubber feet to metal "all-terrain" spikes, a set of metal spikes are available separately.
