TVC-23: Versa series 2, 3 sections/leg


Out of Stock, Backorder OK

The TVC-23 is our standard-height, Versa Series 2 tripod. Versa Series 2 Tripods are smaller and lighter than our Series 3 ‘pods, and perfectly complement our BH-40 ballhead. They offer the benefits of both a compact traveler and a Versa-style tripod, all in one. Versa Series 2 tripods are the perfect choice for mid-sized gear combos. Common mid-sized gear includes most DSLR cameras and 70-200mm/f2.8 & 300mm/f4 telephotos. Given its high load capacity, a Versa Series 2 tripod is also a great solution for shooters who need maximum support but want to keep their tripod as portable as possible. Our unique accessories further expand the utility of these tripods. Add a quick-column for more height, or use a leveling base for instant leveling. Optionally, add the leveling base to the quick-column and give your tripod an adjustable height leveling base! No other tripod in the world offers this versatility.
  • Patented SureGrip Apex Lock System: Allows quick and absolutely secure change out from a Versa Quick Column or Series 3 Leveling Base.
  • Offset Leg Joints: Tripods must occasionally withstand tremendous bending and torsion loads. It is crucial that the leg angle stops and all other structural joints are well supported. Our patented offset leg joints fully support the leg angle stops allowing load to be transferred straight through the strongest members of the tripod. This also means that the tripod is more compact when collapsed.
  • Ratcheting Angle Stops: Just pull out the stop, raise the leg, and the stop will automatically engage into place beginning at the highest setting. Pulling the legs back down will ratchet the stop into place at each angle. This keeps your fingers safe from pinching and assures the best support.
  • Twist Grip Leg Extension Locks: Textured semi-hard rubber allows for easy adjustments and strong grip. Anti-twist leg sections mean each twist lock can be operated independently.
  • Rubber Ball Feet: Large diameter teardrop shape keeps leg sidewalls from touching the ground even at the lowest settings and makes positive contact with the ground at virtually any angle.
  • Big & Thin Carbon Fiber Legs: With a large outer diameter and wall thickness of only 0.04", our carbon fiber tubes far surpass the competition in strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Anodizing vs Powder Coating: Anodizing provides surface protection embedded into the metal, yielding superior wear and corrosion resistance versus a superficial coating.
  • CNC Machining: Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) milling machines precisely sculpt parts out of solid metal affording excellent control in the design, fit and finish of every metal part found on an RRS tripod. Other tripod manufacturers employ mold casting to mass produce metal parts, resulting in lower strength/quality pieces.
