I'm going to be purchasing the new Vortex Razor HD 27-60x85 Angled Spotting Scope and am looking for a good tripod for it. I'm hoping to find one that is carbon fiber with the flip locks and that doesn't require an adapter plate to attach the scope to it, any suggestions?
Thanks for your inquiry.
You will need to choose the Manfrotto 128RC Micro Fluid Tripod Head, which is the only tripod head to which you can attach that new Razor scope without using the quick release plate.
For the carbon fiber leg set with lever locks, I'd recommend this kit, which comes with the head I mentioned: Manfrotto 128RC/MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod Package. Another nice leg set would be the Swarovski CT 101 Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs, which would pair nicely with the 128RC Head.
Please let us know if you have any other questions!
All the best,
