Description

SIRUI ST-125 tripod with VA-5 Ultra-Compact Video Head Kit is an ideal all-round tripod for sport optics, videographers, and photographers.

The tripod features a unique triangular center column to prevent rotation when panning, reduce vibration, and allow the tripod legs to fold together in a more compact arrangement to take up less room in your pack.  The column can be inverted for ground level shots.  A stabilizing hook on the center column is standard for adding ballast in windy conditions and it comes with a nice carrying case.

The legs are adjustable in three angles with positive & semi-automatic click stops. Each leg consists of 5 sections with 4 sealing o-ring locks. The rubber feet and removable metal spikes allow the tripod to stand securely on any surface.

 

Including Arca Swiss compatible VA-5 pan-head which has become a favorite for hunters for it’s well machined design, smooth motion, and solid lockup with no scope sag.  The QD plate safety lock system prevents the plate from accidentally disengaging.

This is a really solid tripod package that’s sized ideally for the outdoorsman needing a stable tripod for high country hunting with larger optics.  It’s beautifully designed and coordinated as a complete package that leaves nothing to want at a great price.  The VA-5 head is well known for its solid performance among hunters so you can pan smoothly and grid the mountain efficiently.  It will handle large optics up to a BTX 95 without breaking a sweat.  

The only thing I wouldn’t recommend this for is for shooting because a ball head is usually preferable so you can quickly level the rifle regardless of whether the legs are on uneven ground.  I would also step up a level in leg diameter for shooting and definitely go with a 4-section to eliminate the smallest diameter tube which contributes to a bit of vibration – especially if you go mounting a 10 pound rifle on top.

The 5-section is nice and compact, but I usually opt for the 4 section tripods for the added stability at what usually amounts to being the same weight, but the compactness of the 5 section is a great feature if that’s your goal.

Either way these new tripod kits from Sirui get the nod of approval from me.
