The SLIK Pro CF-834 has four leg sections that extend to a height of 64.9 inches. When folded down, the tripod is only 18.9 inches in length. It weighs 3.4 lbs, but is capable of handling nearly 15.4 lbs of equipment. The SLIK Pro CF-834 is usable with a variety of tripod heads.
All 800 series carbon fiber tripods have legs made up of material that is comprised of 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are then bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace, producing strong, light-weight carbon fiber. The leg Anti-Rotational System (ARS) is crafted into the leg locks and does not permit individual leg sections to rotate inside each other. Each leg also has an independent lock that sets in one of 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three settings are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography.
The four leg sections are secured and loosened with twist locks. Because the legs do not rotate, you can unlock all of a leg's stages at once by twisting the three large rubber grips with one hand. This enables fast setup.
