The Slik PRO CF-635 Carbon Fiber Tripod is an excellent compact tripod for those who don't need to have their scope or camera at full standing height and prefer a lighter-weight, shorter tripod. The CF-635 extends to 51.5", weighs 1.9lbs, and has 5-section legs. The leg locks are the twist collar type, but the Anti-Rotational System legs keep the leg sections from rotating inside each other, so the lock is easy and positive. The carbon fiber leg tubes are comprised of 8 layers of interwoven carbon filaments which are then bonded together.
