I have been using a 3 section X3M1 tall tripod for a few years now. I think I paid about £35 quid for it. I use it for deer stalking and foxing. I normally have the legs fully extended. It is very stable and there is no play in the leg joints. I have taken many foxes at over 200yds with this tripod supporting my .243 with nightvision/scope/moderator weighing 18lbs. The only real complaint I have about the tripod is that the the "V" that the rifle stock rests in does not rotate (as it is formed by the top sections of 2 of the legs).
After a few frustrating events whilst foxing with night vision when I ran out of sideways movement and had to start repositioning the tripod etc. I decided to bite the bullet and buy a tripod with a 360 degree rotating head. The cheapest I could find a Primos Trigger Stick Mk2 tall tripod was for £110 off Amazon.
Before deciding to make the purchase I read several reviews and watched a few videos. The tripod was supposed to be rock solid.
Here is what I think of it.
It looks quite impressive but also a bit flashy (probably because that is what the US Market likes).
The rubber feet are nowhere near as good as metal spikes.
The maximum extended length of the legs at 62 inches is too short.
The pistol grip top section flexes slightly.
The 2 section legs flex badly at the joints.
The swivel head was stiff.
The play in the pistol grip and front leg can be taken up by leaning into the tripod slightly. This is fine until you try to rotate it and then lean into it- the 2 front legs take the pressure and the back leg comes off the ground.
Don't waste your money on one.
