Really Right Stuff – Ascend Tripods Long Ball Head

$1,745.00

Overview

With the help of our customers’ invaluable feedback, we have made our most compact and versatile adventure-tripod yet. 

The Ascend-14 tripod is a compact, all-in-one support package available in two sizes: 14—which favors a minimum stowed profile, ideal for packing in a carry-on bag, and 14L—which provides an extended working height while still being compact enough when collapsed to easily fit in a backpack.

For an all-in-one package, look to the integrated ball head that nests into the apex. If you already own one of our ball heads, or any other head with a 3/8″ mounting socket, a platform version of the Ascend-14 is offered as well. Instead of the integrated ball head, there is a general use traditional platform with mounting-stud.

Included with the Ascend-14 is our attention to detail, top-quality craftsmanship, and commitment to proudly make and hand-assemble all our tripods in the USA.
