The newly developed TS-81 tripod socket is designed for ease of use when photographing with the Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 DG HSM OS Sports lens. With the ability to adjust the center of gravity, the new optional tripod socket also features safety screws to prevent the lens from falling and improved balance when the lens is extended as well as when using a teleconverter or battery pack. Two mounting threads are used, 1/4 and 3/8, for use with an Arca Swiss quick release plate or other tripods.
- This product is compatible with the Arca Swiss screw knob clamp. Please ensure that it is screwed and fixed tightly. This product is not designed for lever type clamps. There are some lever clamps available that do not fix firmly and safely.
- Please ensure that 2 Safety Stopper Screws (supplied) are always fixed so that the Arca Swiss clamp will not fall off

Posted on 4/9/2018Robust but heavier.
Easy to attach and use! It takes some extra space but fits into the Sigma 150-600 protection bag when attached. It is much easier to get balance with camera and filter regardless of head used.
The cons is the extra weight to carry and the extra weight it adds on top on your tripod head.
the total weight ends up to be 3373g or 7lb & 7oz.
Do i recommend it? Yes, the weight isn't an issue for me so the stability and performance are what matters for me.
