I do some guiding for Birder's. I have a lot of spotting scopes by different manufactures for people to use, and Demo when out with me.I have found this Gitzo #1720QR to be the best spotting scope Birding head to date for me!
This is the lightest tripod head I have had, and like it a lot. It is easy to use with good rotation, both side to side and up and down. I am using it with my Nikon Fieldscope which is very lightweight and a Gitzo tripod.
This is an awesome product. I not only hunt big game animals in the west, which requires long range spotting, but also guide hunters to these same animals. Having a great spotting scope, as well as an efficient tri-pod that is smooth and easy-to-use head is critical.
I use the head to attach a Baader Vario 10x60 finder to use it as a spotting scope. The head is so light, has a full range of very smooth motion, and the clamping is very firm when using a heavy eyepiece. Just tighten up the clamp and the balance issue is solved but it still moves smoothly.
Compact size and simple one wheel control for all movement. Expensive but I think worth the money
Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
This is a high quality lightweight tripod head and provides very smooth panning for my binoculars
Attached to my 190cxpro4 tripod, it is really smooth to operate my zeiss 85 spotting scope, in a controlled manor it is fast and easy to follow all forms of wildlife.
Durable, Exceptionaly smooth, Lightweight
Gitzo claim this is the only tripod head designed specifically for birdwatching. Having tried most of the others, I can believe this.<br /><br />It really does have the best features and functionality for use with a compact birding scope.
Durable, Great Features, Lightweight, Simple Controls
The head is very smooth, very precise. I have mounted my 85mm spotting scope onto the mount and find the it superb.I can identify no cons to the product.
I use the 1720 QR to support my spotting scope and it works great. I was out with it all day and was always impressed with how smooth it was, how easy it was to adjust to a bird's movement, always precise.
