I currently have a Slik Sprint Pro tripod (I believe) with the stock pinhead that came with it. I'm going to upgrade this year and am looking at getting the Slik 634 with a Manfrotto Before Live fluid head. I can also get the Sirui VA-5 video head for about $50 but it does way a little more as well. I only plan on using my 10x binocs and an Athlon 15-45x spotter. Just looking for opinions on the 634/Befree setup before I pull the trigger.
