“Extends to an impressive height…The tripod remains stable even when extended, due to a bracket that locked the legs into place…We especially liked the way in which the adaptor plate was fitted into the mount, which is held in place by a sprung locking mechanism. Telescopes are expensive, so it’s worth making sure they are securely attached.” BBC Sky At Night Magazine

Excellent tripod for the money matching if not surpassing more expensive models. Working really well with my Celesrton 15 x 70 binoculars. Delivery within 2 days despite the current Covid crisis
Great service

The order processing and delivery were efficient However, the Centre Column Lock of the tripod was cracked. In view of the apparent generally good quality of the tripod this is surprising and there seems to have been a lapse in quality control. FLO indicated that they would apply for a replacement lock from the manufacturers/suppliers. It is hoped that this will be expedited in a short timeframe.

I bought this tripod as a replacement mount for a 15x70 binocular.

The tripod is extremely stable.

Very high quality. Easy to set up.

I particularly liked the adjustment settings which include the ability to set friction.

The tripod also extended up a reasonable height so that I can easily view objects at zenith without having to kneel or bend knees.

To get the best you should really buy a decent rigid adapter to mount the binocular on the tripod (I got horrible plastic one supplied with my binocular). FLO do a good adapter...

Good value for money. Wish I'd bought something like this years ago.
