The J100 is the most popular tripod we make because of its wide range of formats and at just 7 pounds / 3.17 kg with standard anodized aluminum knobs, it is extremely light weight and portable.  When compared to carbon fiber tripods, a wooden tripod is just as light, but more durable, and supports more weight.  If you prefer the bronze knobs they are available at an additional $88, and add one (1) pound / .45 kg to the weight of the tripod.  The J100, with a crown size of 3.9 inches / 9.9 cm, is for professional DSLR, medium format, large format 4 x 5 to 5 x 7 cameras and professional video cameras up to 35 pounds / 16 kg when used in conjunction with a J Series Head.  Ries J Series Tripods feature the Tri-Lock mechanism making them the most stable tripod in the industry. They are made standard from Eastern Hard Rock Maple or custom made from one of our Special wood selections.

The J100 is available with 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 mounting screws. The J Series Head is recommended for use with this tripod.  Our H Series Tripods have a 2 Inch / 5.08 cm crown if you are looking for a smaller crown.   Tripods at a different height, can be special ordered, please contact us or call and we can customize a tripod for you, up to an additional 12 inches/30.48 cm, for an additional charge.



All Performances are based on Ries models manufactured after January 2014 when the Ries factory converted from cast aluminum to the current wrought 6061-T6 aluminum alloy.  Though similar in appearance to the older cast aluminum the older Ries models are not rated to the same specifications as our newer models.
