# ABEO 243AV



The Abeo 243AV Aluminum Tripod with PH-113V Pan Head from Vanguard is a sturdy aluminum alloy tripod equipped with the magnesium alloy PH-113V Video Pan Head. Fast adjustments, compactness and reliability characterize this tripod/head combination. Each tripod leg can adjust independently to 25º, 50º, or 80º angles and with the included short column adapter installed and legs fully spread, the tripod flattens for low-angle shooting. The maximum extendable height is 61.75". Quick-flip leg locks make height adjustment simple and secure. Thick foam on the upper part of each leg makes the tripod easy and comfortable to handle in cold or wet weather and a stabilizer hook extends from the bottom of the anti-spin center column to add weight for further stability. The PH-113V two-way pan head is made of magnesium alloy and offers smooth movement and a long handle for better control of heavier cameras. The handle can be screwed into either side of the head and the head includes the QS-66 quick shoe and a built-in bubble level.
