Another to consider is the new Summit SS Tripod by Vortex, it's very lightweight & solid as a rock, I'm using it for this years hunts. It will hold even the largest spotters. At 1.8 lb & 54 1/2" height potential & packs down to 14" including ball head it's a nice one for 125.00! Here's a link.
I would get the SLIK 340EZ. The included pan head is pretty functional. They run around $130
It has a 3 year warranty. For packing purposes & cutting wt. this tripod is pretty nice, the ball head on it functions with no issues, it does not chatter. This was just another affordable option, it will handle a 65mm easily. The 1.8# feature is what attracted me in the 1st place.
kinda heavy dont ya think?
