The TFCT-34 is our compact, standard-height Series 3 tripod designed to fit inside most airline-approved carry-on bags (when collapsed and with head & feet removed). 

Series 3 tripods represent the pinnacle of tripod design and performance. Weighing in at only 4.4 pounds yet capable of supporting 50 pounds, a TFCT-34 Series 3 tripod combines the Really Right Stuff ideal of soul-satisfying feel and finish with best-in-class strength and resilience. 

All features, materials, fit and finish in a SOAR series tripod meet and exceed the best in the world. We painstakingly machine most components and assemble each tripod by hand. What we don't produce ourselves is made in the United States down to the smallest screw. SOAR Series 3 tripods are the perfect choice for all full-sized gear combos. They're built for rock solid support of large caliber precision rifles, but their incredibly light weight also makes them easy to carry and use with all gear.



  • Patent-pending Taper Lock System secures the ballhead inside the apex making it unable to slip
  • Offset Leg Joints: Tripods must occasionally withstand tremendous bending and torsion loads. It is crucial that the leg angle stops and all other structural joints are well supported. Our patented offset leg joints fully support the leg angle stops allowing loads to be transferred straight through the strongest members of the tripod. This also means the tripod is more compact when collapsed.
  • Ratcheting Angle Stops
  • Rubber Ball Feet: Large diameter teardrop shape keeps leg sidewalls from touching the ground even at the lowest settings and makes positive contact with the ground at virtually any angle.
  • Anodized, Type 3 Black
  • Bulls-eye spirit level
  • Twist Grip Leg Extension Locks: Textured semi-hard rubber allows for easy adjustments and strong grip. Anti-twist leg sections mean each twist lock can be operated independently.
