The The VANGUARD Abeo 243AB Heavy Duty Tripod [V235677] is a stable, lightweight, and reliable magnesium die-cast tripod equipped with the popular magnesium SBH-50 ballhead. It supports up to 6 kg and has a maximum height of 157cm.
This sleek tripod folds down to 24.62" for convenient transport and storage. Quick-flip leg locks and a hexagonal-shaped center column make set-up fast and easy. The legs can each adjust individually to a 25-, 50-, or 80-degree angle, and the rubber feet can convert to large spikes for stability on uneven terrain. A low-angle adapter makes getting those unique low shots easier than ever. Thick foam on the upper part of each leg makes the tripod easy and comfortable to handle even in cold, wet weather.
