The Eclipse Winston Carbon Fiber Tripod with AirHed 360 Ball Head from 3 Legged Thing is an updated variant of the original Winston tripod kit. Identical in nearly every way, the Eclipse series only differs from the Equinox through the use of Gunmetal Gray colored fittings instead of the classic blue and bronze.
The Eclipse Winston kit features three leg sections that can extend to a maximum height of 76.9" and also go as low as 10.6". At the 23° angle leg spread, which is considered a normal stance, the tripod can support a maximum of 88.2 lb. (The legs have two additional wider stances, and these will support less weight.) The twist locks' Para-lock feature works by restricting the opening movement of the friction lock, preventing you from accidentally unscrewing the lock until the leg section detaches.
Fold the legs 180° in reverse to make the tripod more compact for travel and storage. The ball head offers separate ball and pan locks, as well as a lock for the plate. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate with a 1/4"-20 camera screw is included with the head.
All 3 Legged Thing tripods have a detachable leg with standard 3/8"-16 threads at both ends. The Tri-mount plate and threaded bolt can be unscrewed and removed from the top of the center column, then screwed directly onto the leg. The detachable leg can be used as a monopod, microphone boom, or selfie stick.
