Bogen 055XWNB vs 055 XV

Postby Deano on Sat Nov 15, 2008 9:09 am

Hi,could you tell me if the 055XWNB would be any more stable then
the 055 XV for use with a scope (nikon 82A) in Yellowstone.
The 055XWNB weight is a little more. Weight doesn't bother me except
where stability is concerned. Head used will be a 128RC.

Thanks
Deano

Hi

Inherently, no - same basic leg set. However, the spiked feet on the WNB may give you a better grip on some surfaces. The standard version only has rubber feet.
