The Sunwayfoto GNN XB-52DL Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp
Based on  XB-52 and replaced the Screw-Knob Clamp with DLC-50 Screw/Lever Combo Clamp.  The screw knob side is for adjusting the width of the clamp, and the lever side is for locking the clamp quickly.  The  XB-52DL Low Profile Ball Head from Sunwayfoto is the larger of two ball heads in the XB line of low profile ball heads from Sunwayfoto. It features a very low center of gravity, very high load capacity of 132 pounds and improved ball head design for smoother movements when changing position. It includes the two-drop-notch design for camera orientation and weighs only 1.60 pounds.

 

Features include:
  • Locking System is located on the side of the ball instead of the bottom of the ballhead. Whole center of gravity  is lowered more than 15%;
  • Adopts geared  locking structure,  higher locking strength;
  • Specially designed  panning base, smooth operation;
  • Elliptical ball for progressive resistance and avoiding suddenly sliding down;
  • Two drop notch design. One for portrait, one for tilting;
  • All metal knobs for reliability and long term durability;
  • Two set spirit level mounting holes for users to mount the removable spirit level to the other sides of the  clamp;
  • Special structure makes it the lightest of its class.

The MARC M-LOK plate has been designed to mount to both (1.5”/38mm) Arca-Swiss tripod clamps and legacy Manfrotto tripod heads that use RC2/200PL attachment plates.

A lightweight option for mounting a rifle or spotting scope cage to a tripod.

PIG0311-G Field Tripod

"The Grunt of Tripods"

 

The PIG0311-G tripod is based off of the budget friendly yet capable SLIK DX700PRO tripod. Shadow Tech LLC partnered up with Slik and started putting together several prototypes with beefed up specs, tighter tolerances and shooter specific features that are not readily available. Eight months of testing later they came up with this field tripod.

During testing Shadow Tech used several 50 cal rifles (Barrett M107 & McMillan Tac50) with great results regarding officer feedback and repeatable shot placement. Being unsure of what kind of garage cannon that might be placed on the PIG0311-G tripod, we decided to stick with a conservative 26 pound load rating.

 

A no-nonsense field tripod designed for the active outdoorsman.  This tripod was meant to get dirty, be thrown in trucks, and be used outside. Paired with a direct mounted PIG Saddle, this tripod can do almost anything a more expensive tripod kit can do (At a fraction the cost).

The GNN FB-52 ball head is a great match with this tripod. 

 

 

  • The short center column allows the shooter to get all the way down to a 11.5” high prone position.
  • A removable, load bearing hook has been added to the bottom of the center column to hang weight, such as a backpack. The added weight will greatly increase tripod stability.
  • The center column can fully rotate 365 degrees. This is a great feature for those who intend to direct mount a saddle to the PIG0311-G tripod.
  • The tripod’s feet incorporate interchangeable rubber or spiked feet. (Yes, the spiked feet are included)
  • 26 lbs heavy duty weight rating. But don’t be surprised to see Barrett 50 cal’s being popped off this thing.
  • Lightweight magnesium body with aluminum legs. 
  • Three section extending legs with cam levers.   
  • Lightweight nylon carry bag included.
  • Finished off in flat OD Green paint job.
