I am a first-time buying customer and need some help in deciding what tripod to purchase. It will be a gift to my parents. I am looking to spend between $99 - $200. They have binoculars, size 8X42. I look forward to hearing back from you.
Thanks for your inquiry.
I would recommend the Vortex Pro GT as an excellent option in your price range: http://www.eagleoptics.com/tripod-kits/vortex/vortex-pro-gt-tripod-kit-2 It’s well built, fully adjustable, and quite sturdy.
If you are mounting binoculars to the tripod, you will also need to get a tripod adapter for the binoculars (if you don’t already have one): http://www.eagleoptics.com/binocular-accessories/vortex/vortex-binocular-tripod-adapter
