The Gen 2 Pan Head incorporates the highly requested Arca-Swiss compatibility while also accepting Outdoorsmans plates.

The jaw system uses a spring/washer tensioning mechanism that will provide the same amount of tension, no matter which plate style you are using. There is no need to adjust the tension of the jaws for any reason. From mounting your binos with an Outdoorsmans adapter to attaching your rifle with an Arca-Swiss rail, the Gen 2 Pan Head can handle it all with lightning-fast transitions.

That isn’t the only trick the Gen 2 Pan Head has up its sleeve, though. The jaws also have two positions that you can use for different scenarios. In the half-open position, you will be able to slide your plates in for a secure and guided fitment. Then, when you need to attach an item that isn’t able to slide on like a rifle with a bipod blocking the rail, you can open the jaws to their second position which allows any plate to just tilt in and lock down with the same speed

Tripod Head

I went to the Hunting expo in SLC Utah, and stopped by the Outdoorsmen booth and boy was I amamzed. I have an older tripod and they helped me out and even gave me a few extra things for my old tripod to use with the new head I bought for my 10/42 EL’s. It is such a sweet ride and so steady to use with the stud system. Thanks again a for the help and helping to save money and make it work!

Pan Head Gen Two

Pan head works as designed,
Pretty smooth
It took a bit to get accustomed to the adjustments ie get the right tension, but after that loved it

Brilliant design for both Outdoorsmans & Arca Swiss hookups! I mainly use the Outdoorsmans fluid head for my hunts but when backpacking in this head is used to save weight without sacrificing performance. Paired this with the new Gen 2 compact tripod and I’m good to go! I always say this outta be my last setup I get for a LONG time but somehow Outdoorsmans always seems to engineer something better that I just can’t do without. Lifelong customer. Buy once cry once.
