The PIG0311-G tripod is based off of the budget friendly yet capable SLIK DX700PRO tripod. ShadowTech partnered up with Slik and started putting together several prototypes with beefed up specs, tighter tolerances and shooter specific features that are not readily available. Eight months of testing later they came up with this field tripod.
During testing they used several 50 cal rifles (Barrett M107 & McMillan Tac50) with great results regarding officer feedback and repeatable shot placement. Being unsure of what kind of garage cannon that might be placed on the PIG0311-G tripod, they decided to stick with a conservative 12Kg load rating.
A no-nonsense field tripod designed for the active outdoorsman. This tripod was meant to get dirty, be thrown in trucks, and be used outside. Paired with a direct mounted PIG Saddle, this tripod can do almost anything a more expensive tripod kit can do (At a fraction the cost).
The Sunwayfoto FB-52 ball head is a great match with this tripod.
The short center column allows the shooter to get all the way down to a 11.5” high prone position.
A removable, load bearing hook has been added to the bottom of the center column to hang weight, such as a backpack. The added weight will greatly increase tripod stability.
The center column can fully rotate 365 degrees. This is a great feature for those who intend to direct mount a saddle to the PIG0311-G tripod.
The tripod’s feet incorporate interchangeable rubber or spiked feet. (spiked feet are included)
12 Kg heavy duty weight rating. But don’t be surprised to see Barrett 50 cal’s being popped off this thing.
Lightweight magnesium body with aluminum legs.
Three section extending legs with cam levers.
Finished off in flat OD Green paint job.

P.R.S.T Elite Carbon Fibre Shooting Tripod
The P.R.S.T Elite (Precision Rifle Shooter Tripod - Elite) is a second generation shooting specific tripod designed by snipers for use in a multitude of ways from the long distance shooter to a military sniper. The Elite version has a smaller form factor than the original P.R.S.T due to a unique centre yoke that offers a more compact centre column area with slots to attach slings, counterweights and camouflage. The P.R.S.T forms part of the new L115 Sniper Stabilisation Platform for the British Army. Its simple but effective design works! Photography tripods like those of Manfrotto are not designed to be treated hard and exposed to the weight and conditions that many shooters find themselves in. The P.R.S.T Elite will allow shooting from raised prone through to standing. When combined with the HOG Saddle MOD 7 the tripod system weighs in at a total of 2.2Kg.
Material: Carbon fibre legs with machined aluminum components
Legs: Four section legs with user serviceable cam-lock levers
Finish: Cerakote Elite Tan
Feet: Includes two interchangeable sets. Rubber feed and spiked steel feet.
Center column: 6.5 inch length. Short enough to splay tripod out for high prone position.
Center column function: The center column not only adjusts vertically, it is able to rotate. A great feature for users who direct mount a saddle to their tripod without a ball head.
