Vortex Optics high country II aluminum tripod.
This High Country II is a nice tripod for the money. I purchased my first Vortex tripod about a year and a half ago. It has done well and held up to many hours of spotting with a heavy spotting scope on it. But I actually like this High Country II better. The attachment for the panhead is useful and and accepts more universal mount attachments. It holds my heavier spotting scope as well as my 15 power binoculars staying stable during use. I'll be running both tripods for glassing this year.
