Slik PRO CF-733
The Slik PRO CF-733 is a full-size tripod extending to 66 inches and folds down to a compact 22.6 inches. Though lightweight, 2.9 lb, the CF-733 handles up to 11 lb.
All 700 series carbon fiber tripods have legs made up of carbon fiber material that is comprised of 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are then bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace producing strong, lightweight carbon fiber. The legs also feature A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System). This does not allow the individual leg sections to rotate inside each other. Each leg also has an independent lock that sets in one of 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three settings are for maximum height, waist level, or low angle photography close to the ground.
The three leg sections are secured and loosened with twist locks. Because the legs are non-rotating, you can unlock all of a leg’s stages at once by twisting the three large rubber grips with one hand. This enables fast setup.
