Admittedly, optics tripods … not the sexiest topic. Practical, however. Don’t believe me? Pick any old one off the bargain shelf and see if it doesn’t A: Weight you down, B: Drive you insane trying to adjust it, C: Fray your nerves because it wobbles like mad, thus makes it impossible to focus downrange, or D: All of the above.
Better to spend a little money and get the right tool for the job, which is what Meopta USA Sport Optics appears to have come out with recently. If it lives up to its billing, the Meopta Carbon Fiber Tripod looks to be a solid base for spotting scopes and binoculars that cuts down on the bulk. Collapsing to 18-inches and weighing 4 pounds, the optics base shouldn’t prove a hassle to pack in and out either, even if you plan to hump a couple miles to your favorite hunting spot. And it boasts functionality to boot, with 70-inches of rise, fluid and ball heads, quick-release plates, detachable-leg monopod and phone adapter.
The catch, they aren’t giving away the Meopta Carbon Fiber Tripod. The accessory has a suggested retail price of $300. But if you’re going to spend big money on an optic, might as well get the goods that will make it perform.
