BARNEVELD, Wisconsin. – Developed for hunters and competitive shooters who need a compact yet super stable platform for precision shooting and backcountry glazing. The Switchback™ Carbon Tripod offers a superior strength-to-weight ratio to support heavy rifles, spotting scopes and large binoculars.

Weighs only 4.6 lbs. Folded length of only 29”. Designed without a center column for greater adjustability, it goes from a minimum height of 5.8″ to a maximum height of 65″. A carefully placed counterweight hook allows you to hang additional weight to dampen vibrations. Rubber feet with removable spikes to hold on to any type of floor. Sturdy carbon fiber legs, a lockable ball head and Arca-Swiss standard quick release mount mean you can go from glass to solid shooting mode in seconds.

And there is more:

  • CARBON FIBER LEG CONSTRUCTION for robust strength without the weight
  • 44 lbs. MAXIMUM LOAD to hold its own under sniper rifles and heavy optics
  • 3 LEG SECTIONS WITH TWIST LOCK for quick adjustment
  • 3-ANGLE LEG PIVOT LOCKS for various heights and secure mounting
  • LOCKABLE BALL JOINT removes crosshair shift when squeezed

Shoot under, over or through obstacles. Standing, kneeling, sitting or prone. The Switchback™ Carbon Tripod (MSRP: $799.99, MAP: $599.99) lets you build a fast, solid glazing and shooting position from the ground up, no matter the stage of the game or phase of your hunt.

The Switchback™ Carbon Tripod can be used with any 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 threaded tripod head with the Switchback™ Carbon Tripod Head Adapter (MSRP: $39.99, MAP: $29.99), which is sold separately.
