The Granite Peak Tripod is designed for individuals who do not have a requirement for a firearm bipod. Backpackers, archery hunters, birders, and lightweight photographers also have the same desire for a ultra lightweight and compactness in a tripod design.
CNC machined from 6061-T6511 aluminum to exact tolerances, the Granite Peak is a rock solid and flexible solution. Each of the leg ball sockets provide over 80° of mobility, which allows quick and easy height adjustments. The mobility of the leg ball sockets also allows the Granite Peak to easily straddle your body when sit-ted so that your binos or spotting scope is perfectly position for long, comfortable viewing sessions. No arching your back, straining to get behind your optics, just easy comfortable viewing!
At the top of the Granite Peak is a fourth ball socket. This "optic" ball socket provides the same 80° of mobility as each leg socket. There is knurled adjusting wheel for fine adjusted of the tension on the optics ball socket. Adjust the wheel for light tension, and you can easily pan your optics and cover wide angles, yet with a bit more tightening you can "lock down" the optics socket to hold a desired position.
The optional OBA (Optics Balance Adjuster, compensates for poorly-balanced optic solutions and makes pinpoint target acquisition during the lock-down of the optics ball socket.
There is a knurled "optics plateau" with a rubber/cork blend washer threaded onto the optic-standard 1/4" X 20TPI screw. You can directly attach your spotting scope, camera, bino adapter, etc. to this screw, and tighten the optic plateau up to the bottom for a security mount. And of course, our OBA can mount the same way.
The sitting model of the Granite Peak all tip the scale at an amazing 8 ounces or less.
Our simple and straight forward "triple-string" is also included. Attach a clip to each of the three legs, and add weight to the center or pull down with your hand, and compensate for those
high wind days.
