The Bogen/Manfrotto 700RC2,190XV View Aluminum Tripod Kit offers good stability in a lightweight, compact package. It's similar in height to the carbon fiber 700RC2,190CXV3, weighs 11 ounces more, but costs a bunch less. With an angled, mid-sized spotting scope, even a 6-footer can use this tripod comfortably. Two of the legs feature Manfrotto's foam rubber leg wraps which provide comfort on your shoulder and insulation for your hands on very hot or cold days. The 3-faceted center column means your scope or camera will stay pointed in the came direction when the head is raised or lowered.
