Thread: Recommend a sturdier tripod with same specs as Sprint Pro pls...

    Default Recommend a sturdier tripod with same specs as Sprint Pro pls...

    After the upgrade to a heavier cam, I feel that my Slik Sprint Pro isn't up to the task of supporting the cam properly, especially with TC lens attached...
    As such, I'll be shopping for a new tripod with abt the same specs as the Sprint Pro. Most important factor should be a short folded length.
    Pls recommend a suitable ball head with quick release to complement it as well. Thank you!

    This is the specs on the Slik Sprint Pro (thanks to mpenza) :

    Maximum Height 64.3" (163.5 cm)
    Minimum Height 6.3" (16.2 cm) [when used with short column]
    Folded Length 18.9" (48 cm)
    Load Capacity 4.4 lb (2 kg)
    Leg Sections 4
    Leg Lock Type Flip levers
    Independent Leg Spread Yes
    Center Column Sections 2
    Center Column Type Sliding (Reversible, with tension control)
    Center Brace No
    Spiked Feet Yes
    Head Type Ball Head
    Head Mount Thread Size 1/4"-20
    Weight 1.9 lb (860g)

    PS : Pls include the prices too. I heard Gitzo may have some ideal ones but the tag is real pricey...

    gitzo 1126, $300. less than 40cm when head is removed and folded.

    Thanks for the recommendation, will prefer a longer fully extended length though.
    Guess I'm hard to please.
