From the manufacturer
SLIK has been quietly designing and manufacturing high-quality tripods for more than 50 years.
The Original Travel Tripod
Do you need a simple to use travel tripod that is built tough and ready to travel? Then the Sprint Series is perfect for you. Made of aircraft aluminum, Sprint tripods are the perfect companion for today's mirrorless cameras and lightweight DSLR systems. The legs can be set independently at three different angles for stability on uneven terrain. The built-in short column allows you to work just 6.4 inches off the ground which is perfect for those creative low angles and macro shots.
- Full sized tripod with up to 64.4-inch maximum height
- Maximum capacity of up to 4.5 lbs
- Flip-locks for fast and easy set-up
- Tripod weight just 2.1 lbs depending on model
Multi-Angle Leg Positions
The 3-position adjustable angle leg locks can lock each leg independently at 15, 40 or 70-degree angles to make it easy to set up on uneven ground or steps. It also makes it easy for the tripod to be lowered to as little as 6.7 inches off the ground for very low angle photography.
Get Dow Low
Using the multi-angle leg locks and the built-in short center column all Slik SPRINT tripods can get down very low to the ground for interesting and more dramatic camera angles.
The SPRINT series gets the camera to eye level. With the center column raised the tripod reaches up to 64.4 inches.
The SLIK SPRINT series makes setting up easy with secure yet fast speed release flip leg locks that do not snap back at you when locking. One finger operation is all that is required to open or close each leg lock.
SPRINT PRO II
The SPRINT PRO II is an update of the original SPRINT featuring a color-matched SBH-100 Ball Head. This compact ball head features a single lever operation for easy movements of the camera.

The second generation of the popular SLIK SPRINT PRO the SPRINT PRO II GM (gun metal finish) has padded leg wraps for more comfortable carrying. The new tripod also has a new SLIK SBH-100DQ all-metal compact ball head with quick release system for faster, easier mounting of a camera. The tripod is an excellent travel partner for a light-weight mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (ILC) system or light weight DSLR. With a capacity of 4.5 lbs. the tripod can handle up to a midrange DSLR with a standard or kit lens. The SPRINT PRO II GM is a full sized tripod when it is extended to its maximum height of almost 64 inches. The adjustable legs angles can be used to splay the legs out and lower the tripod. When used with the built-in short center column, (the included center column unscrews into two pieces) the camera is just 6.4 inches off the ground for extremely low angle or macro photography out in the field. Another way to get the camera low is to reverse the center column which could be used for macro photography or copy work.

I bought this one because I needed portability, but didn't want to compromise height. When fully extended, I don't have to hunch over to look through my camera. I am only 6', but this was important to me.
That being said, if you extend to smallest legs out, there is a bit of flex in the system and I spread them out a little extra to compensate.
The foam grips on all three legs give it a nice look like the heavier duty ones.
The ball lock is simple to operate and allows you to get any angle you desire. With a heavier setup, you will have to compensate for some flex down though.
the snap in plate works great, and I have now worn the part that holds it open out, it still locks securely and I have never had any problems or concerns with with my camera falling or coming out.
I did not receive a discount on this product for my honest opinion, I paid full price for the item.
Unfortunately on the second day of use the lock on one of the legs broke. You can see the shiny spot where metal snapped in the included photo. The tripod is still usable but it is a bit more challenging to get all three legs evenly spread. I think I would have preferred a little more weight & cost and a little sturdier construction.
Well, I found it.
Amazing light and quite small, small enough to easily fit In my suitcase, and quite well made. Love how well things lock down tightly. When you tightened that small lever for the ball head that thing is Tight and Firm, better and easier than my big tripods. And it is very versatile, especially with the two parts of the center post separated. Great for macro work.
Ok, it is not perfect.
With the thinnest legs extended it is a bit unstable. So..I see myself rarely using them. With them not extended it is a bit short, but I would rather bend over a bit in exchange for a rock solid tripod. And if I really need the added height, it is there in reserve.
And it comes with a nice little case to sling it over your shoulder if you want.
Btw, if you google it, there is a nice video on YouTube where the guy runs through all the features. Good to watch before you buy.
As a compact travel tripod, I don't expect rock solid stability when fully extended, and that is about as expected.
However, the ball head and mounting plate are just adequate with an APS-C camera and standard lens, definitely too small with an 18-200mm zoom. The camera creeps significantly after the ball is locked and the mounting plate has too little friction to avoid loosening with use. Also, the mounting plate has no lock mechanism, so be very careful when carrying or adjusting the ball head.
All-in-all not bad, but a slightly larger ball head and mounting plate would be a big improvement.
