Trying to put together my hunting gear, and picked up a Vortex tripod for the binos. What I didn't pay attention to is that the max height is about 55". I'm 6'2" and in no way, shape, or form considering bending down or leaning over for hours while glassing. I can sit, but I imagine my butt will fall asleep after a while. Do you all have experience / recommendations for a taller tripod? As an aside, while I was testing the tripod in my yard, glassing the elusive pigeon, is that the handle found on some tripods would also seem to come in handy, as opposed to loosening and maneuvering the screw locks.

Handle is handy for moving glasses if not to tight, I like mine, My tripod, I have 2, one short for sitting and another that goes up to over 6ft, Im 6.5 in tall, so i put my tripod on uphill side if possible, stand straight up. But standing get tiring also, sitting is best.
