These tripods are top sellers for good reasons. The ENG 2 CF is extremely lightweight, solid and stable. Although the ENG 2 CF HD weighs just 4 kg / 8.8 lb, its completely dual tube design ensures it can safely and stably carry payloads of up to 95 kg / 209 lb even at its maximum height of 161 cm / 63.4". And with its folding handle, you can easily carry the tripod in a horizontal position.
Double extension tripods are ideal for a much wider variety of applications, due to their expanded height range, i.e. lower bottom and higher top positions. In addition, their transport length is even shorter.
