Outdoorsmans Tall Tripod Aluminum Gen 2 - Gunmetal Limited Edition
How do you top the best hunting tripod ever created?
It took us a while to figure it out – about 20 years. You can’t imagine the amount of noise in our collective ear when it comes to the materials we use. When we initially looked into carbon fiber, we discovered that although the strength-to-weight ratio is obviously fantastic, most types were lacking in our aspect of top priority – durability.
After two years of working with various carbon and carbon composite manufacturers, we settled on a completely new compound construction of carbon fiber and Innegra. The marriage of these two technical materials plus redesigned components made from our bread-and-butter anodized 6061 T6 aluminum has created a tripod that’s so tough, we’re really not sure what it would take to break it. It’s also more user-friendly while maintaining the charm and legacy of the original. Typically, when you make a tripod lighter, longevity and stability are the first aspects to go out the window. We are happy to report that this is not the case with the Gen 2.
Think of it this way: Each model of our tripods has been to fat camp, then boot camp, then space camp. The result is a set of tripods that are significantly lighter (11 oz on the Tall) and significantly stronger while maintaining their stability. We hope you can appreciate how awesome that is.
The Gen 2 series of tripods is also based on the idea that hunters often have a need for multiple tripod setups for different applications. This family will soon include a full line of modular options including leg materials, sizes, attachments, interchangeable feet for different types of terrain, and more.
It would have been easy for us to make a cheap carbon fiber tripod in China and call it a day. Fortunately, that’s not how we do things.
