This kit includes the following:
AM-7 Monster Magic Arm
This mega magic arm was developed on our request as a dedicated Kestrel mount for target shooting. The optimal and simplest spotting setup is mounting your scope/binos in the main tripod head and the kestrel mounted on the side via a magic arm.
The AM-7 has a total length of 600mm (in straight position), which allows the kestrel to be mounted well above even the largest spotting scopes. This is so that the spotting scope does not interfere with the wind reading.
CF-7P Spirit Level
If mounting the kestrel in the rotating vane, it is critical that the vane is mounted perfectly level to allow for easy and accurate rotation with wind direction. This level attaches to the tip of the arm and a 1/4" spigot provides a mounting point for the Kestrel vane.
Proprietary Leofoto Connection
The AM-7 can be configured with Leofoto's "kit" tips, which feature a 3/8" screw, flanked by two male pins, which correspond with female grooves found on the apex of all Summit tripods. This provides the most stable connection for magic arms.
Please note that SA tripod kits do not have this connection - you can make use of the either the MC-40 or MC-60 clamps to connect it to a leg or you can remove the kit tips and replace them with the standard 1/4" tips.
