Campfire just had the Vanguard 283cv carbon fiber
with 114 panhead on sale for 200 bucks I ordered one being in need of a tripod. Does anyone have any experience with this unit. Let me know if it was a goof buy or if I should have saved my money for something else.
ps will mostly be used for Lieca 77 spotter.
Thanks Ben

The tripod is OK. The head is not ideal for glassing game - it has a very long arm and it's too stiff for panning quickly and smoothly. I would get a good panning head like the Slik SH-707E or the Jim White head.
