The T-025X Carbon Fiber Tripod with C-10S Ball Head from Sirui is a compact, ultra-lightweight, and stylish tripod with an included head. With upward-folding legs, it collapses to just 12.2", with the head attached, and weighs just 2 lb. Supporting loads up to 13.2 lb, this tripod is capable of holding DSLR cameras with lightweight lenses and is ideal for compact and mirrorless cameras and camcorders. The T-025X features twist locks for easy setup and each leg has and automatic leg-angle lock mechanism for speed and convenience. A removable center column allows for table-top and low angle shooting as low as 4.1", with the ball head. When fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 58" with the head attached. The C-10S is an extremely capable ball head. Its separate knobs for pan and tilt adjustments enable the user to perform tasks such as panoramic photography while keeping the tilt locked. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate is included, as is a soft carrying case and a tool set.

I purchased this tripod for use during backpacking trips so I wanted a tripod as light as I could get. This was the lightest tripod I could find that was still reasonably priced. At 2+ lbs, it IS light, but if you are trying to pack as light as possible for 3-4 days in the high mountains, 2 extra pounds is a lot of weight. As I said, I have yet to use this on a backpacking trip but I think it would work well. The only issue will be that FOR BACKPACKING PURPOSES it is fairly heavy and large. For non-backpacking purposes, it is very light and small. I'd say it's a little smaller than the size of two Nalgenes stacked on top of one another.
This item comes with a tripod and a head. The head (and center shaft) can be removed and your camera can be mounted directly to the tripod using the old style screw peg. The head itself is relatively heavy (compared to the weight of the legs) and I am debating leaving the head at home while backpacking. Like I said, you can remove the head and the center shaft and just use the legs. Obviously that limits you somewhat on your flexibility in shooting (especially on uneven ground) however, but it also probably cuts the weight in half. I haven't weighed this thing on the scale, but by my guesstimations, the head and center shaft weigh about as much as the legs. The center shaft itself is really light, so I don't know how much weight you'd save by dropping the center shaft - but if you are ultra light backpacking, every gram of weight counts. I'll spend some time in a local park for an afternoon and see how it goes with and without the head/center shaft.
The stability of the tripod is a little lacking - but that is to be expected from such a light tripod. If you will be taking any type of long exposure or low light photos, I'd probably recommend a remote shutter. Even in the house on a solid level floor, the tripod would vibrate and shake a little as I would take pictures. Again, I'm not faulting the tripod because you will sacrifice stability for weight, but it's something you should be aware of. It does come with a small d-ring that you could use to attach a weight (sand bag, camera bag, water jug, backpack, etc) to the bottom of the tripod which would (in theory) dampen vibration and shake. I haven't tried it yet and I don't really see myself going through that trouble, but that might be a solution for some people if you really wanted to try to make the tripod more stable.
I'll update this review as I use the tripod. Overall, it seems really nice and I think I'll be pleased with it.
I'm a backcountry hunter first and hobby photographer second. I thrive on superb products that make my hunting/photography experience better and easier. This tripod does exactly that. It's strength to weight ratio is simply unparalleled. It weighs exactly 1 lb 14 oz or 1.7lbs with the head attached.
Now this tripod is not going to support a large bodied camera with a large lens and be super stable. I use my Vortex 65mm spotting scope and Sony A6000 and it suits me perfectly. I'm going to recommend this to every serious hunter I know. There isn't another product on the market that is this lite and functional. I know because I've been searching for several years. This is worth it's weight in gold!
The ball head.... It compliments the tripod like peanut butter and jelly. It's buttery smooth and locks down tighter than a bench vice. It's amazingly light and functional.
If your looking for a lightweight tripod that will support a smaller body camera or medium sized spotting scope with ease; this is it!
The Good: Very light and portable (1.5 lbs, 12" folded); Inexpensive; Excellent customer service.
The Bad: Center column poorly engineered; So-so ball head.
My major issue with the T-025X is the attachment of the center column to the base. Sirui engineers chose to thread directly into the carbon fiber rather than a metal sleeve. Carbon fiber is very strong but also brittle. It is not meant to be machined in this way. The result is that the threads inevitably weaken over time. Mine has weakened to an unacceptable point after three years. Not a bad run, really, but avoidable IMHO.
Another issue affecting stability is that while the center column is removable, the head mounting plate does not screw into the main base, it simply rests in the cavity left by the removed center column with nothing securing it. Not ideal.
I contacted Sirui through their website and sent photos of the damaged center column. They responded right away, shipping me a new center column the same day they responded with a polite email. No argument, no fuss. Very impressive customer service. Because Sirui is standing behind their products, I have purchased the T-1205X, which has a telescoping center column design at the cost of a few more ounces and length (1.7 lb, 13.3").
Conclusion: The T-025X is functional but delicate. It is feather-light and compact. The center column flaw is a deal-breaker for me so I cannot recommend this particular model. However, I can heartily endorse their commitment to customer service. A 6-year warranty that they actually honor. I'm definitely a Sirui fan.
