The CT-3586 Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod and Triple Action BZ-226T Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight five-section support, which has twist locks that open with just a quarter turn, and each section extends along with the one-section center column to a maximum height of 62.5". With its three variable leg angles, it allows you to splay the legs out and replace the regular center column with the included low-angle center column, so the tripod can go to a minimum height of 8.5".

To store or transport the tripod, the legs fold in the reverse to a compact 16.6". Furthermore, one leg is detachable and can convert into a working monopod with a maximum height of 65.2". Each rubber foot retracts back to expose a metal spike that can be wedged into softer terrain for extra support and stability.

The Arca-type BZ-226T ball head, which includes the QR-20 quick release plate, can support cameras that weigh up to 27 lb, and it easily positions the camera at a 90° angle because of the cut notch on the side of the head. There are three knobs on the ball head; one to control the movement of the ball, the second allows you to rotate and pan a full 360°, and the distinguishable knob in the middle of the other two knobs enables you to dial-in more tension to the ball. Thus, the drag of the ball is intensified and less creep is involved if more weight is added.

5-Section Tripod Legs
The lightweight carbon fiber telescoping legs open and close by turning the twist locks a quarter turn, and the legs fold in the reverse to a compact 16.6" tripod for storage or transport.
Variable Leg Angles
With the tripod's variable leg angles, it can adjust to three angles and splay its legs out completely to a minimum height of 8.4".
Two Center Columns
The rapid center column, which is reversible, extends and locks into place via its twist lock. An included low-angle center column allows you to get those macro shots that are close to the ground.
Integrated Monopod
The tripod's detachable leg converts into a working monopod with a maximum height of 65.2".
Triple-Action Ball Head
The Arca-type BZ-226T ball head, which includes the QR-20 quick release plate, can support cameras that weigh up to 27 lb. The head features three knobs, one to control the movement of the ball, one for the pan, and the tension control knob to add or decrease drag on the ball.
Bubble Level
The integrated bubble level on the ball head enables your to accurately align you horizon within the camera's viewfinder.
Spiked Feet
The retractable rubber feet expose spikes that can be driven into softer terrain to add stability and rigidness to the tripod.

Is this Oben CT-3586 considered Large or Small. How can. I get extra parts for it ?
Asked by: Thomas
Depends on how you look at it. Compared to regular, non-travel tripods, this would be considered small. In relation to travel tripods, this would be medium-ish, leaning towards large. Extra parts can be ordered/sent from the manufacturer, Oben, here: Oben (distributed by Gradus Group, LLC.) Tel: (212) 594-2353 Website: http://www.obensupport.com/ Email: [email protected]
