Max. Ht. (col. ret.)

MT190CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod

Maximum height with the center column retracted is the height at which you get maximum sturdiness of the tripod when the legs are fully extended. Extending the center column reduces stability. For tripods that don't include heads, be sure to add the height of the head to this number as the head will extend the length of the center column by that amount.
