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.

The overall construction and build quality is very good, with only the extendable feet feeling a bit cheap since they're made of plastic. The locking clips are also made of plastic but they feel robust and snap shut solidly. The upper legs are made of a lightweight and durable metal and feature soft foam grips. However, these grips are a bit loose in that they spin around freely a bit. I would've liked a bit more of a solid fit on these. The ballhead features a quick-release plate and the movements are smooth and solid. The quick-release plate is nice and tight and I didn't experience any kind of wiggle in my testing. One thing to note is that the ballhead is removable and features a 1/4" bolt and not a 3/8".
The center column can be removed and made shorter so that you can fully spread the tripod legs for an extremely low angle, which is a nice touch. One thing I would've loved is for the bottom piece of the center column to incorporate a hook. Since this tripod is made to be lightweight, this would have been a great touch to provide optional stability without adding weight to the tripod itself. It's easy enough to mount a custom hook though.
All in all, this is a wonderful space-efficient and lightweight tripod for use on the go with your small to medium cameras, as well as basic DSLR setups. Personally, I'm using it indoors for setting up different things such as small video cameras, flashes, audio equipment, etc. It might be a bit overkill for these but I would rather spend a bit more on a solid product and this Slik tripod has worked great. And if I ever need a convenient option for a tripod, I would rather take this than my full Manfrotto setup which can get a bit heavy while hiking/traveling.
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.
The head itself is obnoxious to use, and comes loose easily, but is usable if combined with the proper amount of patience.
All of that said, the tripod is extremely light weight. I bought it predominately for long, difficult backpacking trips, and it is well suited for that. What it lacks in functionality and versatility, it nearly makes up for by raw virtue of the fact that it weighs as much as a bottle of water.
I'd never, ever, ever use this tripod for anything but serious backpacking, where every ounce counts. If you'd rather invest your money in lenses and such, and you have ever found yourself atop a mountain, desperate to make an HDR image or shoot in low light, this tripod is just cheap enough, just light weight enough, and just functional enough to get the job done.
Tl;dr: it's a cheap(ish) but functional travel tripod.

Hefty quality. Can take a licking and keep on ticking. Adjusts length easily. The quick release legs are a thing of genius.
Easy to pack in a carry-on bag.
Love the little level built in to the tripod head.
Also quick release for the camera is perfect for fighting Murphy's camera law. (That picture opportunity that will be missed, will not happen.)
