SLIK Tripods are known among backcountry hunters as a no-frills tripod that delivers stability and durability in a lightweight package to meet the needs of the backcountry hunter. We find the entire SLIK tripod line to be very high quality. SLIK makes the well known Carbon Fiber PRO series, the new CF LITE series, and the Sprint (aluminum) series. We trust them on our hunts, and so can you!
