Mount a camera, optic, or firearm on a lightweight but sturdy tripod with the BT Precision FBT5436C Carbon Fiber Bowl Top Tripod System from Field Optics Research. The kit includes the 54.4" Bowl Top Tripod, the Arca-Type & Picatinny Rail Mount, and a Precision Bowl Tensioner for a versatile support that offers ±20° movement and 360° independent pan rotation. The system can support 95 pounds, and all three legs are detachable for use as monopods or trekking poles.
Field Optics Research BT Precision FBT5436C Bowl Top Tripod (Carbon Fiber Legs)
Designed for long-range competition shooting and the Precision Rifle Shooting (PRS) circuit, the BT Precision FBT5436C Bowl Top Tripod from Field Optics Research is also suited to videography. Its three-segment, carbon fiber twist-lock legs yield a maximum height of 54.4" and a minimum height of just 3.8". It weighs just 3.5 pounds but has a load capacity of 95 pounds and packs down to 21" for easy transport. Use the separately sold Fiber Optics Research 75mm leveling base to adjust your rifle's tilt—the bowl provides an adjustment range of ± 20°. All three legs are detachable.
Field Optics Research Arca-Type & Picatinny Lever Clamp with Pan Axis
The Field Optics Research Arca-Type & Picatinny Lever Clamp with Pan Axis accepts Arca-type plates to mount a camera or lens, and it also accepts Picatinny rails to mount a riflescope. Inside the clamp, the bottom channel is for Picatinny rails, while the top channel fits Arca-type plates. Built-in safety stops inside the clamp prevent the Arca plate from accidentally sliding out if the clamp is opened. The lever release locks down the clamp and tension can be increased or decreased on the lever.
The clamp has a 3/8"-16 tripod mounting socket, but if the clamp is attached to a leveling base, it can mount directly to a BT bowl top tripod. It is CNC machined from 6063-T6 aluminum and anodized for scratch resistance. The independent pan lock unlocks and allows you to rotate the clamp 360°. On the bottom of the clamp, there are scale markings for repeatable positions or to create panoramic images. Two bubble levels ensure your scope or camera are leveled in the horizontal and vertical planes.
Field Optics Research Precision Bowl Tensioner for 75mm Bowl (Long Handle)
The long-handled Precision Bowl Tensioner from Field Optics Research is a dedicated tie-down assembly compatible with 75mm bowl BT Precision tripods. Use this quick-leveling base to position your tripod head at an angle of up to +/- 20° off level.
Constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy base and a lightweight Delrin handle, the Tensioner is spring-loaded to enable movement when not locked down completely. Features include an easy-to-grip grooved handle and a weight hook strap with a D-ring.
