    Tripod suggestions

    Scored a great deal on a Vortex Razor HD spotter now I am looking for a quality tripod. Any suggestions?

    Vortex has some great tri pods, also Bog Pod has some great ones too.

    Those come in a variety of sizes and weights. Which one did you get? Larger scopes need heavier tripods to keep wiggles to a minimum. The Vortex offerings are solid. Pick one with a weight capacity about 50% or more than your scope weight and you have a good starting point.

    I like the Outdoorsmans compact medium or Promaster 525 with the Outdoorsmans pan head on either. The Promaster has a removable leg that can be used as a trekking pole that can come in handy packing meat the first trip if regular trekking poles aren't carried.

    For the Promaster guys: why do you favor the XC525c over the XC325c? It looks like the 3 section one would be less cumbersome and easier to set up than the 5 section one. It folds down smaller I guess?
