The Swarovski PCT Professional Carbon Tripod with PTH Professional Tripod Head combines Swarovski's sturdiest and tallest tripod with their gimbal head, resulting in firm footing for your scope and/or digiscoping rig.
The Swarovski PCT Professional Carbon Tripod has 4 leg sections and stands 68.9" tall when fully extended without a head, but compresses down to 22". It weighs 63.5 oz., or just short of 4 lbs. It has twist-collar locks on the legs and the center column. The column includes a spring-loaded hook on the bottom for hanging a weight to resist high wind, and a standard 3/8" stud on top for mounting a head.
The PTH Professional Tripod Head uses gimbal action for aiming the spotting scope or camera. The mounting bracket accepts Arca Swiss plates and all current Swarovski spotting scopes. A plate is included for those with pre-Arca Swiss Swarovski or off-brand scopes. The PTH weighs 45.9 oz. and adds 9.4 inches to the total height of the tripod, though most of that does not raise the scope during normal use. For easiest use, we recommend adding the Swarovski BR Balance Rail for Swarovski spotting scopes or a long Arca Swiss plate for other scopes.
Swarovski guarantees for the entire range of branded products purchased from authorized Swarovski retailers, a global and full life-time warranty
covering manufacturing and material defects under normal use beginning with the date of purchase.
The warranty does not cover damage caused by accident or maltreatment. All warranted defects will either be repaired pending feasibility and availability of replacement parts or replaced with either the same product or with a piece of equal value as determined by Swarovski. Swarovski however is lenient with these services.
