Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skyline + Hog saddle = perfection Put a Hog Saddle on this... and it's a perfect platform for a small kid to shoot with. The 3 leg positions allow 4 foot tall shooters to fire prone, sitting, or standing. The Hog saddle + rock solid vortex stability support all the weight, absorb a lot of recoil and make it fun for kids to learn to shoot. It's the best tripod at any range I've ever seen. Everyone who uses this tripod + my Razor + MRAD eyepiece wants one.

Will Magpul MAG624 which is RC2/Q2 compatible work on this tripod?
Asked by: Teedub
It will if you get the corresponding Manfrotto adaptor. The Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14.

This is the tripod that works best for my Razor HD 20-60x85.  I need the ability to switch back and forth to a window mount quickly.  What quick release plate and window mount are compatible?  Thank you
