The Precision Rifle Shooting Tripod Elite is the re-designed 2nd generation of the PRST, and currently issued to the British MoD Snipers!
The Precision Rifle Shooting Tripod Elite like its predecessor is specifically made for rifle shooting. Featuring a slimmer profile due to the re-designed aluminium center section, additional machined slots have been incorporated to easily attach slings or counterweights.
The 4 section carbon-fibre legs keep the overall weight down making it light enough to carry in the hills on a hunt, yet rugged enough to withstand operational use with Law Enforcement or Military, and with an impressive 20Kg load rating strong enough to support the heaviest precision rifle platforms.
The new alloy cam-lock levers allow the PRST Elite to adjust from a low 17cm to 160cm high no matter the temperature or conditions, and being user servicable they prevent slippage with age and wear. Interchangable rubber or spiked feet are included as standard, providing solid options to grip whatever terrain you may be operating in.
The Precision Rifle Shooting Tripod Elite is fitted with a short 9cm center column allowing it to be setup in its lowest position while retaining the ability to make small height adjustments if required. By adjusting the tension control knob the center column can also rotate if being used without a ballhead keeping the overall weight to a minimum.
The most obvious upgrade to the PRST Elite is the new Cerakote Elite series Brown colour, offically called FS20150.
