SnipePod Granite Peak Tripod
The Granite Peak Tripod is designed for individuals who do not have a requirement for a firearm bipod. Backpackers, archery hunters, birders, and lightweight photographers also have the same desire for an ultra lightweight and compactness in a tripod design.
CNC machined from 6061-T6511 aluminium to exact tolerances, the Granite Peak is a rock solid and flexible solution. Each of the leg ball sockets provides over 80° of mobility, which allows quick and easy height adjustments. The mobility of the leg ball sockets also allows the Granite Peak to easily straddle your body when sitting so that your binos or spotting scope is perfectly positioned for long, comfortable viewing sessions. No arching your back, straining to get behind your optics, just easy comfortable viewing!
At the top of the Granite Peak is a fourth ball socket. This "optic" ball socket provides the same 80° of mobility as each leg socket. There is knurled adjusting wheel for fine tension adjustment on the optics ball socket. Adjust the wheel for light tension, and you can easily pan your optics and cover wide angles, yet with a bit more tightening you can "lock down" the optics socket to hold the desired position.
The sitting model of the Granite Peak all tip the scale at an amazing 8 ounces or less.
The simple yet effective "triple-string" is also included. Attach a clip to each of the three legs, and add weight to the centre or pull down with your hand to compensate for high wind days.
