Novoflex TRIO-CC Reviews
If you have a Triopod, which is an exceptional tripod, you need this to make it a great tripod. A bit of fine height adjustment, just what it needed to make it even better. Highly recommended, as are all the Novoflex products, superb engineering, peerless machining, just perfect, and oh so useful in the field.
I purchased this for the compact Novoflex Triopod base and it is surprising how firm it locks the height. A very innovative design idea with three support rods to give better strength then a narrow center column would have. Also quite easy to lock and unlock just watch the head doesn't fall quickly when unlocking. No different to watching any center column I guess. The twisting bottom plate applies pressure around the three rods to hold them firmly in a fixed height. I was using the tripod with mini steel legs for close to ground macro photography. This column just allowed a bit more height adjustment which was difficult with one piece mini legs. But you are limited to the extra height you can get, more of a fine tuning. Also I found my compact TrioPod base got a bit taller with this piece added. The great idea of the TrioPod with removable legs was it's small size for packable use. To get the flexibility of height adjustment I guess I needed to sacrifice something. The piece could be removed easily if I wanted. One rod has a safety nut on the end which prevents pulling the column completely out. Remove the nut and the column slides right out. Very cool design from a company that is always thinking how to make something better.
