Slik Pro II Overview

  • 1Description

The Slik Sprint Pro II is a flyweight class tripod specifically configured for travel concerns, meant for use with very small SLR systems or with any form of point and shoot camera.  It has 20mm diameter upper leg segments, a quite practical 52" (132cm) working weight, and a collapsed size of just 18.5" (47cm).  This is a tripod right at home on a backpack or on your shoulder (unpadded case with shoulder strap included), weighing only 2.42 lbs (1.1kg).

The Sprint series was designed to maximize your propensity to actually carry and use your tripod on vacation, without costing a ton.  It is fast to put up and down, and will help make sharp images in the typical daylight conditions a traveler 'on holiday' can expect.

This particular version of the Sprint series has a 3-way pan/tilt head with quick release, for the photographer who prefers the exact and deliberate nature of a real pan/tilt head (as opposed to a faster, smaller, and less-exact ballhead).

Speed Release Lock levers allow for fast set up
3-Position leg locks allow for leg openings of independent angles
Angled rubber leg tips maximize traction to flat, hard surfaces (and also allow carry on to aircraft)
Foam covered upper leg sections ease handling in extreme weather conditions
True 3-way pan/tilt head, with each axis controlled by a distinct lock
Detachable 2-part center column and independent leg spread allows great minimum operating height
Maximum upper leg diameter of 20mm

    Slik Pro II Reviews

    Sprint Pro II 4-Section Tripod w/ 3-Way Panhead (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the money I purchased this tripod after a lot of research. I wanted something better than the entry level stuff, but wanted to stay under $100 if possible. I'm using it with a EOS Rebel T1i (500D). The tripod supports the camera with the 18-55mm EF-S kit lens plus a hefty 12oz. 430 EX II Speedlite, no problem, nice and sturdy. I've also used it with the 55-250mm EF-S lens, and it is likewise stable. As long as you don't load it up with more weight than it's rated for, you should be very happy with it. The construction is high quality, excellent looks, fit and finish. The ballhead performs beautifully. Comes with a nice SLIK case too. All in all, it's a pleasure to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than what I thought I had a very light flimsy tripod that broke. the good point of that tripod was it being small and light which made it easy to carry around. Now I got this Sprint pro by Slik to replace that and I was worried that It might be heavy or big or flimsy. But when I carried it around, I changed my mind.. It's still light, of course heavier than the previous one, but light enough to be easy to carry around. and it's strong. Not like a professional studio tripod, but It's good enough for outdoor photography. If you're looking for something to carry around and use outdoors, or go hiking with it, I think this one is the best choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, smooth action, easy to use! Perfect for travel photography. Lightweight, but sturdy enough to hold my Nikon D80 with a Tamron 200-500mm zoom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better Than Expected I spent quite some time looking for an under-$150 travel tripod for my Nikon D5100 and 18-105mm plus 55-300mm lenses. I also occasionally take my Canon HV-20 HD camcorder. My main criterion was light weight, as I have gotten to the point where either I or my camera is going to stay home. It turns out that there are cheap under-2 lb. tripods, but they are so limited there's no point carrying one, much less trusting your camera on it. There are sturdy ones at over 3 lbs., but I can really feel the extra weight. Carbon-fiber units cost twice my arbitrary cash limit, but exceed 3 lbs. The extra money gets extra weight capacity, which I can do without. This tripod weighs about 2 lbs. 4 oz.--a bit more than I'd have liked, but it securely holds my D5100 with my 55-300mm lens fully extended, at the end of a 68-mm long stack of extension tubes. (BTW: More than needed to get 1:1 macro images at 2 feet working distance!) This unit is one of three similar Sprint Pro tripods B&H carries. One has a ballhead mount; the other two have 3-axis panheads, better for video panning but weighing a little more. These two seem to differ only in color: One is black (#611-863); this one, #611-865, is significantly cheaper and is painted in Gunmetal, a gray hammertone finish that is quite retro-looking. I'd probably like a smooth black, preferably anodized, better--but a tripod needn't be a fashion statement, after all. This tripod has a quality feel that belies its low price. The legs have 3 locks each to get a short collapsed length, but the unit is tall enough to often leave the lowest section unextended for even more stability and faster setup/stowage. Each leg has a fast yet solid clip lock to hold the leg at one of three angles. The leg tubes are grooved to keep the locks in line for ease of locking. At the widest angle setting, with the long section of the center column unscrewed (easily) to leave a short stub in the tripod, you get a tarantula-flat setup that gets your camera base only 7 above the ground for low-angle or macro work. I do appreciate my D5100's articulated LCD for this setup! You can even invert the column to suspend the panhead UNDER the tripod for very low angles if you like; I haven't tried this yet. Just remember to place the center column base stopper (ridged plug) to protect the center column from slipping down and dropping your camera! Fully extended and at the narrowest angles, the legs are tall enough so I rarely need to extend the center column; this gives a very solid feel. With the center column fully extended, you get, as expected, more (but not excessive) camera shake. But the camera is too high for me that way, so I seldom do that. I use a remote shutter release for most tripod shots anyway. The panhead has two very short handles (hey, it's a travel tripod!) One smoothly controls the roll axis (horizontal-to-vertical camera orientation), the other is the conventional pan and tilt control. It is very convenient to control pan and tilt with one handle, but for video pans it can be a bit awkward to keep the tilt constant as you pan. Action is surprisingly smooth for a simple, lightweight head. The quick-release plate is very light and fast, yet is held solidly by its clamp. At about half the price I was willing to pay, this is a fantastic deal. Its built-in 2-axis spirit level (small, but handy) and comfortable foam grips are extra quality touches. I wouldn't recommend this for a full-frame camera and huge lenses, but for midrange prosumer cameras, this is a great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need another one I bought a previous version of this tripod around 1987 for an expedition. It's been with me to the bottom of open air pits in Mexico of over 1000 feet and everywhere in-between. I've abused this thing in ways no tripod should have to put up with. I've even used it to suspend a brood lamp over chicks. After 28 years one of the quick snaps is coming apart and I need a new one. Sure it's not the most stable tripod you can buy but I'd have never been able to take a heavier one to the places I've taken this one. I can't believe how similar this line is to my old one. Thanks Slik

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome lightweight Just recently bought this tripod and it's great. Perfect for Lowepro Slingshot 202; fits onto the side perfectly. Tripod extends so the viewfinder is right up to my eye (6'2), and holds my 50D, decently large 28-135 lens, and metz flash really well. It's slightly more stable than my chunky cheaper sunpak tripod, but weighs less, is far more flexible, and folds to a far more compact weight. I almost bought the heavier 340dx legs, but I'm glad I didn't. My only complaint is at the complete full height, the middle section can vibrate quite badly. If you use a timer for long exposures, or just fully extend the legs it works best. Even full height it works really well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Lightweight Tripod This is a great tripod for travel and backpacking. I would not spend a lot of $ on a carbon fiber tripod when you can get this one for just a fraction of the cost. Although there are many tripods in the $ range, this comes in at the top. Slik is a respected japanese company that makes outstanding support systems. My last inexpensive Silk tripod lasted more than 30 years, of which I gave overseas to a impoverished youth photographer. This Sprint Pro II tripod is as qood quality or better. Very light, yet very sturdy. Only some plastic, but the main mechanisms are all aluminum. Great Tripod, Great Value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple and lightweight I bought this tripod for very broad range of usage, from hiking to amateur studio shots. So far, I'm very pleased. The construction is very sturdy, it's not very complicated, so there are very few things that can actually break. Stability is very good, although it's not as firm when the tripod is fully extended. But this was expected, as the range is very big. The tripod is easy to manipulate, although it takes a little bit of time to get used to the controls. I really appreciate the size and weight of the tripod. It's easy to carry in a backpack, and is relatively easy and quick to set up. The only slight con is that one of the motion controls sticks out when attached, so either you have to remove it after each use, or find a way how to store the tripod so it won't be a problem.
