Received this item with my Alpen 20-60x scope. Easy to set up. Within 1 month (3-4 uses) one of the micro-adjusters (plastic bushing that the adjustment screw threads through) had broken. I think one of me friends unfamiliar with how far you can adjust in each direction may have forced it and broke it, but he says 'no'. Either way this piece broke, and I had to replace it with a home-made aluminium piece. Also, heavy scopes are wobbly on this tripod. Under full power, just lightly adjusting the focus knob on scope creates a visual tsunami, so you need to focus a little, check picture, focus again etc as it is soooo shaky at 60x power. The higher you make the scope for comfortable viewing, the more shaky it gets. I do recommend this tripod tho, as it mostly does what you want, and you can easiy see .22cal bullet holes on target at 200yds with vertical and horizontal adjustments across all your targets and distances. As I'm writing this, I'm wondering if some bungee cord or surgical ...

Pros:  Micro-adjust
Cons:  Not quite heavy/sturdy enough
Would recommend:  yes

Yerman wrote:

A good product but it could certainly use a bit more mass. The material is a little thin and makes it feel not as strong as it could be. I love the micro-adjust feature though.

The only table top (shooting bench) tripod I could find with micro adjustments, nice touch. Can be a little wobbly with too heavy a scope.

Pros:  fine adjustment
Cons:  stability at high magnification
Would recommend:  yes

Aussie Deerstalker wrote:

Fine adjustment works brilliantly. Scanning from target to target at 100 and 200 yds was easily done. Much better than manhandling the entire scope. Only issue is with the stability of the tripod when adjusting the adjustment on my spotting scope (Bushnell Legend 15-45x60). Adjusting the focus on the scope at highest magnification shook the image so much that i couldn't see what i was adjusting for due to the shaky tripod.

Pros:  Precise Adjusment, Size and Value
Cons:  Not for a big scope
Would recommend:  yes

GVP wrote:

This is a great micro-adjustable tripod that provides minor adjustments left, right, up and down. The tripod is easy to use, great size and very practical. I am using this with a Barska 18-90x88 Scope, which is a little heavy for the scope, which is the only negative comment, but overall, a great table top tripod.

Pros:  Has both azimuth and elevation micro adjustments
Cons:  Verical column unstable when extended
Would recommend:  yes

Excellent Az-El table top mount. A little unstable if the vertical column is extended. This is only a problem when using it with a small telescopee and above about 40x.
