For the first time, Series 3 is also offered in the Basalt version. Scaled for professional equipment, medium format and DSLRs with 300mm lens up to 400mm maximum. With high maximum load capacity and outstanding torsional rigidity, Series 3 tripods are available in 3 and 4-section models at compact and standard level heights. Series 3 tripods are surprisingly lightweight and offer a good safety-stability margin that makes them popular alternatives to series 2 tripods. Series 3 tripods features a new third ultra low leg spread to take full advantage of the Ground Level Set and are provided with the new Power Disc for safer head lock. The new GT3840C is a special compact version, available in basalt fibre tube only, ideal for cabin luggage and to be stored in your back pack.
