Joel tests out three of the top tripods used in long-range shooting. He shot in 4 different positions from 100 yards to 300 yards and finally, 600 yards in an effort to determine the pros and cons of each tripod system. Did one stand out above the rest? Watch Triple Tripod Test – 3 Of The Best For Long Range Shooting, and see what each setup produced in group sizes on paper.

    A "package" price comparison would be interesting. The PIG0311 with head/hog is around $815, the Leofoto with RRS TA3 around $725, and the RRS SOAR about $1400 but the Anvil head is about $400. RRS is great, just like Gitzo, but you pay a significant premium for that name, you can get 98% of the performance for 70% of the price.

    One weakness I think many reviews have with tripods involved is how we tend to evaluate the "package" and not the parts, for example you an put an amazing tripod head on a crappy set of tripod legs or vise versa and get completely different results.

    To me you can get similar performance out of a lot of different priced leg units, sure some are nicer than others, some adjust better/faster, carbon fiber is lighter, etc. but you can get very stable solid platforms with a $200 set of AL legs, or a $1000 set of CF legs. However when it comes to the ball heads it's absolutely worth spending the $ there because none of the cheaper units, heavier or not perform as well as the higher $ ones. You'll have a much better performing package spending $500 on a ball head and $180 on heavier AL tripod legs, than $500 on a carbon tripod leg setup and $180 on a ball head.

    I wish it was an apples to apples comparison. How can you test accuracy with so many variables? For example... Put the leveling base on the pig tripod and the Rrs tripod then shoot. Next put the ball head on the tripods. ETC...
    This was good information and a good start but doesnt really compare the setups. Those were just 3 options available.
