    Pre-order will likely end around Feb 20, and by then, the stores will be offering the tripods on special from Feb 20 to March 2.
    Store specials should be roughly the same as the pre-sale prices.
    Thanks, Randy.

    Ari, It seems lots of tripods have a max height around 60 inches. Could an 8 or 12 inch carbon tube extension be screwed into the feet threads that would be stable for those of us that want just a little more height?

    Hey Eric,
    Actually, all tripods ending in "L4" reach 68 inches, the others vary in maximum height from 53" to 60".
    CP30-L4, CP34-L4 and CP38-L4 are all 68" tall. Most customers I've spoken to, who are 6' and over, find these tripods to be very comfortable to use; add a head and QR clamp, and you'd be at 72".
    If you need a taller tripod, we do make a 5-section CP34 and CP38 that reaches 73", but that's special order and will take extra time to get.
    Alternatively, the CP34 and CP38 tripods will soon have a center post available, hopefully by late spring 2020.
    Thanks for the question, let me know if you need more information.

    No centre post yet, but we did introduce 2 new tripods, and a third is coming soon.

    • CP26-Travel II - a revised version of our successful travel tripod; this one reaches 53" in height, collapses to 20", and has no center post.
    • CP30-M5 II Hybrid - my new favourite tripod; it reaches 60 inches high, collapses to 18 inches, uses 30mm tubes and is good for traveling with heavier cameras, like a Mamiya RZ67 or a 4x5 field camera.
      A good balance between portability/compactness and strength/sturdiness.


    Coming later this month is the smallest tripod of the bunch, the CP22-S4 II.
    It is a thin-tube tripod, capable of morphing into a monopod, tabletop tripod, mini tripod, walking pole, grapple stick and more.
    MSRP on that will be ~$300.00

    Let me know if you have any questions.
