The Slik PRO CF-733 Carbon Fiber Tripod have 3 leg sections and stand 66" tall, fully extended, and close down to 22.6". They weigh 2.9lbs, but can support 11 lbs, so they are capable of handling spotting scopes and cameras with long lenses. 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.
