Hi,I just received a Manfrotto 128RC/MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod Package from you.Unfortunately, it is way too bulky for my needs.
I have a new compact Vortex Razor HD 11-33x50 Straight Spotting Scope. When I ordered the tripod kit, I had the impression that the legs would be on the thin side and the unit would fold into a much smaller package.
Before I return it, what would you have that will deploy quickly, is light weight , and fit into a 19in. package, for my small Vortex scope?
Thanks for your help . Any input would be very welcome.
Thanks for your inquiry.
The folded length of the Manfrotto 128RC/MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod Package you bought has a folded length of 19.2".
Keep in mind that depending on your height, you will be raising the center column up--maybe even to its limit--to get to your eye level with your straight-bodied-scope. Which is why you may want to keep the tripod you have until you evaluate one of these. We have a 30-day Return Policy. Remember too, that you get what you pay for.
In any case, you said you're looking for a lighter-duty setup. Here are some recommendations:
Manfrotto 190Go Tripod Leg (You would need to purchase a tripod head with this. A lighter option than the one you have is: Manfrotto 700RC2 TripodHead
Please call if you have any questions. We'll be happy to take additional measurements for you.
All the best,
