Vinten flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ground Spreader
The Vinten flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ground Spreader eschews the common single or double carbon fiber tube design; instead it has redesigned the shape of the legs for improved torsional strength. The legs weigh just over 7.1 pounds, yet they can support a payload of up to 66 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 16.9" to a maximum height of 62.6" when using the included removable ground spreader. Each leg features a single clamping lever that locks and unlocks the sections.
Each leg extends or retracts independently from the other two, and when it is detached from the spreader each leg can pivot without affecting the other legs. This is especially useful when working on rough or uneven terrain. You can remove the spreader completely and lock each leg in one of three positions, so you can work without a spreader if you wish. This enables you to spread the legs extremely wide for low shots while the tripod legs maintain their torsional stability. The dual spikes at the end of each leg provide extra grip when working on softer ground, and you can snap on the included rubber feet onto the dual spikes for better grip when working on hard or delicate surfaces. Included with the legs are an attachment mount and a carry handle that mount on the side of the bowl using the 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes.
