The Arrow 40 fluid head is designed for use with fully configured ENG camcorder packages weighing up to 35.2 lbs (16.0 kg). Indexed variable fluid drag and counterbalance ensure accurate, speedy setups, and a sliding camera plate with 70 mm of travel accommodates irregular camera/lens combinations.

The 1589 Sprinter II one-stage aluminum alloy tripod features Sprint-Loks for dependable, one-touch stage locking without bending over. For easy transport at the end of the shoot, built-in leg clips hold the legs together, and the integrated handle is positioned for perfect balance with the head still mounted. Used in conjunction with the included 990 Sprinter II mid-level spreader, complete stability is assured regardless of terrain.
Designed and built for actual daily use, the roomy Arrow 870 soft case answers operator frustrations with real solutions. The head-end cradle is padded and reinforced for protection and puncture resistance. The carrying strap is asymmetrically positioned for optimal balance, and a convenient ID pocket simplifies travel.
As a system, the 1681 represents a thoroughly engineered support designed meet and exceed the needs of the most demanding ENG professionals. For peace of mind, it carries a 3-year parts and labor warranty, and worldwide support.
