Academy Deal Alert - Tripod

Academy Deal Alert - Tripod - 01/14/20 06:01 PM

I picked one of these up a few weeks back and found it to be a good deal. Plenty strong and easy to assemble since all the nuts and bolts were individually packaged according to the assembly steps. The bolt holes for the swivel seat were a perfect match for a spare boat seat I had that was collecting dust.

The customer reviews are mostly positive.

Game Winner 10-ft Tripod

I bought one last weekend. Seems like a heck of a deal. I am glad to here that assembly was easy.

Yes, just lay out the individual parts bags in the order they're marked and look at the diagram for each step.

I also like the swing-over rail as opposed to the fixed rails that were once available with earlier versions of tripod stands. I had two of them and it was always somewhat of a hassle to climb under the front rail to get onto the platform and into the seat.

I was about to ask if the rail was hinged. I see a trip to Academy in my future.
