The Ascend-14 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Integrated Ball Head from Really Right Stuff is a compact, all-in-one wilderness tripod. It features an Arca-type ball head that nests compactly within the leg apex collar and supports up to 30 lb. It’s designed for adventure with lightweight carbon-fiber construction and a maximum height of 59.9″, yet still folds down to a compact 18.5″ for backpacking and carry-on convenience when traveling. The Ascend 14 will support heavy sport optics and camera gear outfitted with long telephoto lenses or digiscoping setups. It is also stable enough to be used for an effective hunting rifle rest.
