Slik PRO CF carbon fiber tripods feature an A.R.S (Ant-Rotational System) designed into the legs and log locks. The A.R.S. systems prevent the leg tubes from rotating inside each other, making it much easier to lock and release all the twist-release locks securely.
Each leg has an independent lock that sets in one 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three setting are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography close to the ground. It also makes it easier to set up the tripod on uneven ground, steps or rocks. The center column unscrew into two pieces to create a much shorter column for use in low angle photography.
