Barska meets needs at a good price point

by Tanz, from United States, CA Written on July 31, 2014
This Barska tripod was purchased to hold a chronograph when at a shooting range. It does the job admirably and appears to be more stable and stronger than a Konus 1952 that I have also owned and used. Set up is easy. It holds the chronograph in a slight breeze. Adjustment for height and level is also easy and straightforward. This is now my recommendation for a low priced chronograph holder. The legs of the Barska are slightly thicker than the Konus. The mounting portion has held up better than the Konus, too.

I gave the product 4 stars to signal that it does its intended job well, but I left off one star to alert the user that this is not a substitute for a more expensive and rugged tripod for serious mobility and camera use....

Very flimsy product

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on February 10, 2012
The tripod was dented during shipment. Worst of all after receiving my spotting scope and was setting it up, the tripod started to slip sideways. I then noticed the clamp on the leg used to tightnen in place was cracked!
Pros: none
Cons: broke before even using it....
Would recommend: No

Barska Bino/Spotting Scope/Camera, Deluxe Tripod,With Case

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 8, 2010
Great tripod for the money. Has all the features of the expensive ones for 1/3 the cost. The carry case is an added plus too.I bought it for my Spotting Scope, but ended up using it with my wifes video camera as well.It's great that it has so many uses. Not intended for rough service.If you plan on using it in a rough enviroment, or getting rough with it, then you'll probably break it. If you use it for what it's intended for it will give you years of use. It's very adjustable in height too.
Pros: Liteweight,Easy to set up,packs up small and carries well in case
Cons: Fragile, not intended for rough service...
Would recommend: Yes

Barska Tripod AF10374

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 25, 2007
This tripod is a well made, pro-sumer grade piece of equipment at a medium price. A moderately heavy but very steady tripod unit with excellent quality fittings. The fluid head is the amazing part - the smoothest panning and tilting motions on the planet! No jerky motions at all. One minor issue is that the fluid head has no real friction (as in none!) so if you tilt a heavy lens or camera too much, it goes "over top dead center" and starts a continual slide frontward or backwards. Your options are to hold the head steering arm or really crank down on the tension knob, but then it's not fluid anymore. Still, I wouldn't trade this for anything.
Pros: Smooooooth! Steady. Very nicely made.
Cons: A bit heavy, hard to keep fixed at high angles....
Would recommend: Yes

Barska Spotting Scope and Tripod

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 25, 2007
I bought two spotting scopes that were returned because they didn't do the job. I bench rest shot .223 rifle at 200yds and couldn't see the hits at 100yds much less 200. These scopes cost much more also. The Barska does an outstanding job. Bright, clear out to the edges and the table top tripod is very well built, as well as the heavy duty case everything comes in. I also ordered a full size Barska tripod and it's the same story. Excellant quality and dependability for the money. I told my son about them and he also ordered one of each. Fairly light in weight and compact enough for what I'll be using it for. Service from OpticsPlanet is great also. This is my first purchase with this company but it won't be my last. Thanks....
