PUNKS RANGE

The Punks range is a selection of entry-level tripods and a monopod that have specifications and build quality others envy. Innovative and versatile features and higher load capacities than others in their class, Punks is a range with attitude. Learn about the USPs, and unique technologies which appear in different products in the range, and check them out in more detail below.
DETACHABLE MONOPOD LEG

Each of the Punks tripods (excluding Patti) features a leg with a copper ring at the top. This leg can easily be detached and used as a monopod or boom arm by joining it to the centre column.

BUBBLE GRIPS

The first of our ranges to use the unique bubble pattern, the Punks tripods and monopod use the varied bubble pattern that offers excellent grip, and water dissipation in damp conditions.

INTERCHANGEABLE FOOTWEAR

Punks range tripods and monopod come supplied with hard-wearing, removable, rubber Bootz. These can be replaced with our stainless steel footwear for a range of terrains. Heelz, Clawz, and Stilettoz are sold separately.

LOW-LEVEL SHOOTING

With three optimal leg angles - 23˚, 55˚, 80˚ - Punks tripods offer a range of different perspectives to shoot from, even as low as 11 cm / 4" from the ground.

AIRHED NEO

The AirHed Neo supplied with Punks twist-lock tripods is a compact yet highly-effective, Arca-Swiss compatible ballhead, with 360˚ panning, and in-built bubble levels.

MULTI-USE COLUMN

The centre column on all Punks Range tripods can be used in situ, reversed, removed, or attached to a leg to create a full-size monopod. With standard 3/8" threads at each end, our columns have many uses.

TRI-MOUNT PLATE

The patented Tri-Mount plate found on our Punks tripods has three hollowed spurs which enable the attachment of clip-on accessories, including the supplied Toolz multi-tool. The contoured sides also enable the tripod to counterfold for transportation.

CHOICE OF COLOURWAYS

Our Punks tripods are available in two different colourways - grey with copper accents and blue AirHed Neo, or stealthy matte black with British Racing Green accents and matte black AirHed Neo. Trent, our Punks monopod, is available in Metallic Slate Grey.
