    Vortex Pro GT reviews

    Pro GT Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 86.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Well Built Given the Vortex warranty reputation and large number of apparent satisfied customers I figured the Pro GT was, if nothing else, a good place to start. I've had the opportunity to test the tri-pod and found it to be sturdy and well built. After a quick, and typical, set-up I had no drift of the scope while in use. I also found the quick-release feature to be well built and extremely handy. Only issue I have with the Pro GT is with my 5'11 height; the Pro GT I found was a bit on the short side when fully extended. However, as I intend to use Pro GT while packing in the backcountry the smaller size/weight is more of a plus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good mid-range tripod. This is good mid-range tripod. I use it to hold my Vortex spotting scope. It is well made and very serviceable. It is definitely light and easy to carry into the field. I have noticed that because the scope is somewhat heavy and the tripod is so light that I need to hang a weight from the included hook to steady the scope for viewing. The 3-way Pan/Tilt head is serviceable but certainly not nearly as functional as more expensive heads or gimbal set ups. I would definitely recommend this tripod to anyone wanting a midrange tripod. Someone looking for a little more stability might want to spend the extra money for a beefier set up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vortex Tripod For the Win! I use the Vortex Pro GT Tripod with my Swarovski STS-65 HD 20-60x65mm Spotting Scope. It works so well for me! Perfect for my height (as I am quite short), but I am able to make it tall enough for normal sized people. It's super light weight and is comfortable to carry since two of the legs are padded. The head is really easy to use and manipulate while I'm scoping birds. It's surprisingly stable for being so light weight. On a windy day, there's minimal shake to the scope. All I need to do is lightly put my hand on top of the scope (which I typically do anyway) and it's perfect. I only gave it 4 stars because I'm still working out the kinks, probably user related. A little unsure of how to be able to look upward. Absolutely worth the price! Especially when it's holding my precious scope!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great performance for the $ I bought this tripod to use with my spotting scope. It so far has proved to be perfectly adequate for this task. One thing I noted was the 3-Way Pan/Tilt head required me to attach the quick-release plate 90 Degrees from normal on my scope in order to use the feature properly. Not a big deal, but seems like an oversight on the part of the manufacturer. It wouldn't be as big a deal for a camera. The quick release legs operate smoothly, but I wonder if that will still be the case after years of use. Overall, I am happy with my purchase, and would recommend this product to others.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Accessory Tripod B&H included this tripod free with the Vortex Razor HD scope, an excellent deal. While the price point is mid-range like the scope, the quality is not quite as top-notch. I am probably spoiled by the Manfrotto 3021BPRO I have used for my photography for years, but this tripod did not seem as rock-solid when the scope was mounted. The three-part aluminum legs are easy to set up and put away and the built-in padding on two legs is a real plus (for all those of us who are used to replacing pipe insulation padding every few years!) The pan/tilt head is easy to adjust and the quick release plate easy to mount and remove, but the lever that holds the quick release plate does not have a separate locking release, which makes carrying the scope mounted on the tripod too scary (Vortex recommends against doing that anyway, of course). I use it for birding; finding the birds was easy, but the image was shaky until I removed my hand from the scope. Overall a good entry-level tripod, but serious users will want to upgrade eventually to carbon fiber for lighter weight and perhaps a more secure locking mechanism in the head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid, recommended I received this as a part of an incredible value package with the Vortex Razor HD 11-33x spotting scope. As such I expected a cheap, poorly made product. Was I ever wrong! This is extremely well built and solid, even coming with its own case. It even comes with a quick release mount. Very solid support, and will get much use with my scope and my camera. The only downside is lack of a crank for up and down central stem motion - this must be adjusted using a friction mechanism.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK tripod The tripod is easy to set-up and I really like the 3-way pan/tilt head. I have used it mostly for wildlife viewing and it was easy to follow moving objects with the 3-way head. One thing I did not like about this product is that when I tighten the head, it seemed that the up and down is locked but the side to side still has movement (unless I really crank it down) - this made it difficult to take photos as an inadvertent tap would move the scope. Also the tripod was not as steady as others I have used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy Works great with my Vortex spotting scope. Very stable and easy to pan/tilt. Lowest the tripod will go is about 2.5 ft; highest is 6.5 ft. The only downfall is it is not the most portable tripod. It is about 3 ft when fully compacted.
