  • Meet the Ultimate High Performance Tripod

    In the world of tripods, the FEISOL Tournament Class stands alone. In every measure of engineering design and construction, no other class of tripod can match the superior quality and performance our Tournament Class offers.

    The FEISOL CT-3442 Rapid is truly an engineering achievement, combining the finest qualities the industry has to offer. It features a body frame construction of 7075 aluminum alloy, an exceptionally high-strength material normally only used in the aerospace industry. In addition, the legs of the CT-3442 are made of specialized carbon fiber material that offers a far superior strength when compared to common carbon fiber. This allows the CT-3442 to combine two essential qualities for the serious photographer: maximum strength with minimum weight.

    Features of the FEISOL CT-3442 Tournament Class tripod include
    - Constructed of top quality carbon fiber and high grade, CNC-milled 7075 solid block aluminum.
    - FEISOL's new Rapid anti-leg-rotation technology to keep top sections from turning.
    - Reverse-folding legs which flip up 180 degrees over the ball head for maximum compactness.
    - Base diameter of 80 mm (3.15 in).
    - Unmatched strength and durability in an incredibly lightweight design - just 1.14 kg (2.51 lb).
    - Precision engineered high-alloy parts that respond to the finest adjustments.
    - The largest cross-section leg tube diameters of 28 mm (1.15 in), for an incredibly strong and secure tripod performance.
    - An attractive tripod bag is included.

    Optional Center Column Upgrade Kit
    Our optional center column upgrade kit is of lightweight carbon fiber construction, adding just 0.21 kg (0.47 lb) of additional weight.

    The new attachment design is exceptionally strong, securing to the tripod body with three stainless steel screws. The center column remains completely immobile even at its maximum height, for total security and precision during operation.

    For the photographer who demands perfection at every shoot, the CT-3442 is the clear choice. The name featured on the CT-3442 FEISOL Tournament Class immediately communicates how seriously you take your hobby or profession. Like you, the CT-3442 sets the standards that others can only attempt to reach.
