Wrestling Octopus for sale

I have decided that one tripod is enough, so I am selling my tame wrestling octopus, aka the Uniloc S1700 twin-section.

In very good condition but with a couple of paint chips, this is being sold without a head (although I have a head I might sell if interested) and it comes in a Jessops tripod bag.

Because of its weight and size I really only want to sell to someone who can collect Edinburgh area.

I am asking 70.

Further details on this 'pod can be found at:

Hope you're getting on well with her, Chris, and she's not giving you too much trouble!
(yes, got the phone line back today after 3 weeks of BT ineptitude and incompetence)

Re: Wrestling Octopus for sale

The Unloc 1700S is a boy's tripod. I've got the 1200S, which is twice as large and heavy!

Don't forget, with the Uniloc System tripods you can take a leg off and connect it to the centre column to make a monopod. I've also got the attachment to make it into a 'duopod', but haven't used it yet.

Be carefull if you take the sections appart. You _undo_ (clockwise) the allen screws to slacken the joints. Also just _slacken_ the screws and don't wind them out, otherwise they'll foul and score the inside of the tube.

I have the official 'Instructions & Parts List' for the Uniloc tripods. P.M. me with your email address and I'll send them.

Jim

The 1220's a boys tripod. I've got one somewhere but the 1600 and 2300 get more use. They're both good in deep snow as you can drive the legs down into the snow before locking them at whatever angle they end up at.

Re: Wrestling Octopus for sale

Stephen - I am getting to grips with the octopus and seem to be ending up on the winning side more often than not. It just takes a bit of thought as to where I need the legs and camera to be before I undo the bendy screw
p.s. sent PM regarding the other items we talked about

Jim - a copy of the Uniloc information would be very welcome.

Thanks
