Anyone got a good tripod they like for standing up that won't break the bank? I have a good SLIK for sitting but doesn't work for standing. Looking for something that will mostly stay in the truck or at the most be a 1 mile hike kinda rig.

Grabbed that, it is the same tripod I currently run (lost the extended center pipe so can take that from this one when needed). My primary has the 3way head, but I think this cheaper one will do fine for from the truck, otherwise I will just use the extended pipe from this one and this stays in the truck as a backup.

Nice- hopefully it works out good for the road hunting. Thing I found when fully extending the tripods is you really want a heavy duty one to hold even a 65 steady at that height.

My biggest glass is currently 15x Vortex Vultures, so this should handle the weight fine, especially for the few times I am standing up or glassing from the tailgate which really only happens on a youth elk hunt I help guide on.
