Lightest tripod legs?

Subject: Lightest tripod legs?

What are some of the lightest tripod legs that you have available?
I prefer a tripod that has 3 leg sections, it will be used with a Swarovski ATS-80HD spotting scope and some occasional digiscoping.

Thanks, Dwayne

Hi Dwayne, thanks for the email. Some of the lightest tripod legs available are made by Gitzo, most notably are the Gitzo Mountaineer Tripod legs.

As you can see, they are not cheap, but they are very lightweight and still amazingly rigid. Another, more economical tripod to look at would be the Manfrotto 055CX3 Tripod legs, which are about a pound heavier but substantially less expensive than the Gitzo tripods.
