Upgrade your older Gitzo for the field

Barn owl, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I own several Gitzo carbon tripods, including the hefty G1325 which is my main tool in the field. I love the tripod and use it for both Canon FF and 4x5 film cameras. It came with fixed, glued in rubber feet which are fine on pavement or indoor surfaces. However those rubber tips lack sufficient grip on broken dirt or rocky ground.These accessory spike feet provided the perfect solution.
  • Pros: Easy to install, Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy

Spikes work perfectly

  • Excerpt: I purchased these retractable spikes for a trip to Banff national park. They worked exactly as intended and help my gitzo firmly on lose ground. The few times I needed to retract them I did so easily.

Very good accessory

  • Excerpt: If you do landscapes spiked feet are a must. However, I have also found that those spike feet are absolutely essential when it's icy. Since I do a lot of winter photography my gear probably would not last long without them.

Spiked feet are totally worth it

  • Excerpt: I love these feet. For such a simple accessory, these really add some functionality to my tripod. They screwed right into the GT-2531 legs, and the spikes extend or retract with ease. I use my tripod on hard ground half of the time and on dirt or soft ground the other half, and these give immediate flexibility for whatever is necessary to provide me with steady support.

  • Excerpt: Screwed into the bottom of my Gitzo with no issues at all. I put a put of red thread locker so they don't come loose. Should serve the purpose for a winter trip to Iceland.

Perfect for indoor's and outdoor's

  • Excerpt: I really like these spiked feet. I love shooting landscapes and the spikes give you that extra grip that you need at times. Quickly screw them back out for indoor use when you need a full rubber foot.

Solid Support

  • Excerpt: It was very fortunate that I lost one of the feet from my Gitzo tripod. I ordered these spiked feet and I am glad that I have them. I shoot mostly outdoor landscapes and animal images and really appreciate the solid support these feet give me on all types of surfaces. Highly recommended.
