    Best money spent

    Posted by J Ellnor on Jun 20th 2021

    I bought a $1600 RRS set up. And this tripod is better in almost every regard. If your on the fence buy this one!! It’s more stable without a doubt and at half the price!!!

    Recon tripod

    Posted by autodidact on May 25th 2021

    A significant purchase like the Recon tripod and leveling head wasn’t something I could make without a lot of thought, but I finally did and couldn’t be happier. The fit and finish of all the parts are flawless, but more important, there is nothing I could improve about its operations. One hesitation I had was about the collet-style twist type leg extension locks. Similar leg locks on the several other tripods I own require turning the rings very tightly to keep the legs from slipping, and then they are difficult to loosen. I think there must be some magic in the Recon locks because they lock and unlock without much effort even with my old, arthritic hands. When locked, I can lean on the tripod heavily and nothing slips.

    I purchased the leveling head for use when shooting a rifle, but the standard supplied mounting plate with its 3/8-16 screw accepted an adjustable head for photography and telescope use. (The stock supplied mounting plate isn’t described or pictured very well on the site, but it also has a hook on the bottom to hang accessories or weights—a nice, and unexpected, benefit.) The two head setups are easily switched in a matter of seconds.

    The leg feet are another well thought-out feature. The rubber feet are just enough larger in diameter than the legs to provide firm, nonslip support when the legs are fully splayed out for using the tripod low to the ground. Steel spikes are supplied with the feet for use when needed, but because an extra set of feet is so inexpensive, it’s faster and easier to have one set with the spikes extended and one with the spikes in their internal storage position to switch back and forth.

    No buyer’s remorse with this excellent product.

    RECON TRIPOD

    Posted by JW on Apr 24th 2021

    I needed to upgrade this year because my last tripod was not tall enough for PRS applications. This one definitely works and is lighter and very functional. I have also been using to spot targets and hits and it’s super sturdy.

    Recon

    I did a side by side comparision to another name brand tripod that cost twice as much, the Recon was the clear winner. It is used for spotting, shooting and night hunting, it is rock solid!

    Easy to use, super quick deployment

    Posted by Matt on Apr 3rd 2021

    This is easily one of the fastest tripods to deploy. The ratcheting locking system needs like 1.5-2 twists to unlock and lock. Light weight for how tall it is. Strong and easy to use make this a definite winner

    The Cream of the Crop

    Posted by Ryan Mowrer on Dec 7th 2020

    Best Tripod I have used. Very stable and easy to deploy. The Twist locks for the legs are super smooth, even better than the ones on tripods twice the price. 10/10 would recommend purchasing this tripod.

    Recon Tripod

    Posted by Eric Lee on Sep 3rd 2020

    Got the Recon Tripod in middle of the week and took it straight to a PRS match that weekend. This Tripod is super strong and sturdy. Even in the OK winds my binos were stable and able to spot and read wind during the match. Haven't had a chance to shoot off it yet but just doing dry fire practice off it the tripod seems to be very strong and stable. Would highly recommend this tripod.
