The GEEKOTO CT25Pro Craftsman 79" Carbon Fiber Tripod expands to this maximum height by unlocking the flip leg locks and extending the four-section legs along with the two-section rapid center column. With the tripod's variable leg angles, you can splay the legs completely out to a minimum height of 19", but the center column is reversible, so you can get even closer to the ground if needed. The 3.4-pound support includes an Arca-type ball head that has a load capacity of 26.5 pounds and has a quick release plate with a 1/4"-20 threaded camera mount. The leg with the foam grip is detachable and attaches to the removable center column, which has two sections, to become a working 81" monopod with six sections. To store or transport the tripod, the legs fold in the reverse to a compact size.
