(From company literature) SLIK The Professional 4. No compromises, in grand style, THE PROFESSIONAL 4 will elevate your camera to new heights. With a maximum working height of 99.5 inches (that's 8 and a quarter feet!) this tripod will get up above the crowd. This solid draft horse of a tripod will empower you to experience a new higher perspective in your photography.
With professional features like worm gear elevation of the center column, durable all metal leg and fitting construction, and the ability to hold more than 20 pounds of equipment, this tripod will give years of unyielding service.
Every bit as important as the legs is the tripod head. THE PROFESSIONAL Pan Head was designed to work in consort with super duty THE PROFESSIONAL and THE PROFESSIONAL 4 models.
The solidly constructed 3-way pan head has the features that uncompromising photographers are looking for. Large built-in camera platform to handle the mount bases on 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras. The head has dual axis bubble levels for easy accurate leveling of your camera. The bubble levels are recessed in the camera platform to protect against being damage. This head has both large (3/8) and standard (1/4-20) threaded camera mounting posts. When one is not in use, the post fits into a socket in the side of the head where it is out of the way yet always available.
