The 3 Legged Thing Corey Aluminum Travel Tripod with AirHed Neo Ball Head is a five-section aluminium tripod that extends to a maximum height of 147 cm and drops as low as 10 cm. At the 23° angle leg spread, which is considered a normal stance, the tripod can support a maximum of 13 kg, however, when the legs are set at the 55° and 80° stances they may support less weight. The implementation of rubber-coated twist locks is also a welcome addition, improving grip and protecting the user's hands from a hot or cold aluminium surface.
The 2-section rapid centre column can be used upright or inverted, enabling the user to raise the tripod to any height, while using either section of the centre column to make small adjustments. Inverting the legs 180° allows the user to fold the tripod down to just 34 cm for travel or storage.
The included Neo ball head is an ultra-compact, single lock head that features one knob for control of both the pan and ball. A separate knob controls the lock for the Arca-type compatible clamp which includes a basic Arca-style plate with 1/4"-20 mounting thread.
As is common with 3 Legged Thing tripods, the Corey features a detachable leg with standard 3/8 inch-16 threads at both ends. The Tri-mount centre column plate and threaded bolt can be unscrewed and removed from the top of the centre column, then screwed directly onto the leg. The detachable leg can be used as a monopod, microphone boom, or selfie stick depending on the needs of the user.
The legs spread to three angles of 23°, 55°, and 80°
Fold legs 180° in reverse for compactness and storage
