      Tripod recommendations

      I'm trying to decide on a new tripod for this fall for backpack hunting. Looking for one to use with a big spotting scope and something I can use as a rifle rest. Would like to keep it under $400 any recommendations?

      I like my BogPod which is a tri, but that's the only one I have used so I don't have an actual comparison.

      I am one of those weird ones that prefers flip lock legs vs twist. My favorite flip lock tripod was discontinued, so that led me to the Sirui ET-1204. I use it with an 85mm spotter, and haul it in a pack quite often, works great. Call Camerland and mention you're a hunting forum member and you may get ~10% off.

      I use an Outdoorsmans micro pan head with it...

      I like flip-locks and pan-heads. I don't like ball heads for a spotter.

      This has been like listening to Nancy Pelosi argue with Ozzy Osborne.
