The TP-243 is the strongest, most versatile, feature-rich ground and tabletop tripod on the market. We created a height-adjustable pod that handles heavy loads with ease and manages practically any terrain. The TP-243 gets our tripod heads as low to the ground or deck as possible, and handles grime from working in the dirt like a champ. The reversible bottom leg sections have a stainless steel spike at one end for rugged outdoor use and a rubber tip on the other for indoor and table-top use.

  • Entirely CNC machined 6061T aluminum or stainless steel. All aluminum is Type III hard anodized (black) for maximum abrasion resistance. We ruled out carbon fiber for three reasons: 1) carbon fiber is not abrasion resistant and does not handle abuse well; 2) more weight is neccessary because while we like our equipment to be lightweight for carrying, nothing trumps mass for stability when handling telephoto/macro equipment; 3) vibration-dampening aspect of carbon fiber is of minimal benefit for a tripod this short.
  • Reversible bottom leg sections have a stainless steel point at one end for rugged outdoor use and a rubber tip on the other end for indoor/table-top use. Spring-loaded stop-button is depressed for easy removal.
  • 4-position legs for maximum positioning flexibility. Minimum height is only 1.9" (48mm).
  • Super robust. Rated load capacity is 50lbs (23kg), but it can handle much more than that; more weight than any practical photographic application requires!
  • Two section legs are quick to extend/retract; only one easy-grip knob lock per leg.
  • Rubber grips are strategically placed on the inside of each leg to provide protection and traction when legs are fully splayed.
  • Stainless steel screws are black zinc plated to be unobtrusive.
