Is there a spike foot option for this tripod?

Is there a spike foot option for this tripod?
Asked by: Claire
The RRS site does mention interchangeable feet, so their spike and claw feet are options. RRS has tried to maintain standards with their other tripods, as is mentioned in their videos on the website and YouTube.

Should I get the one with the integrated ball ...

Should I get the one with the integrated ball head or the other one and get the BH-40? Some reviews say the ball-head is a compromise from other RRS ball heads
Asked by: Wei-Chun
Depends on your desired use. If you want the tripod to be as light as possible, then get the integrated head. If you have particular taste or a favorite head like the BH-40, this would work very well with it. The BH-40 would introduce about an extra pound of weight, but the head would be more secure for large more telephoto lenses. Either way it works really well with the integrated head or the BH-40. I use the Ascend 14 with an Arca head and enjoy it. It's all a preference.
