The PH-170 NightHawk Ultralight Pan Head is the perfect choice for hunters looking to stabilize their optics while saving weight.  When you get your optics stable you are guaranteed to spot more animals.  The NightHawk Pan Head pairs perfectly with our Quick-StiX System or any standard tripod to get your optics stable without the huge weight penalty.

ULTRALIGHT AND STABLE
Weighing in as little as 4.9oz (Lightest configuration w/o Carbon Handle) the NightHawk is an easy way to shave meaningful weight from your pack without sacrificing stability.

SMOOTH OPERATION
Having a smooth head not only makes for a more enjoyable glassing session, but a more effective one as well! Without the jerky action of cheaper heads, the Nighhawk allows you to grid out a hillside with more efficiency and less fatigue.

DURABLE CONSTRUCTION
Machined right here in the USA out of billet aluminum and stainless steel. The premium materials and black anodized finish provide excellent resistance to wear and the environments.

DISCRETE CONTROL
Precise control over each axis allows you to effectively grid out a hillside making sure you cover every inch! You can set the tension for the tilt and pan axis independently to achieve the perfect tension for your optics.

PH 170 nighthawk ultra light panhead

Amazingly light, precision built panhead for ultralight hunting. Works extremely well with binoculars and lighter spotting scopes. I'm very impressed!

Another great product

Another great product by wiser precision! Fits with my quick stix flawlessly and operates smoothly. Packs very small and the weight is great for long hikes. Keep up the great work!!

The only pan head you will need!

I took the nighthawk to Idaho for a bear hunt and ran a 85mm spotter, bino adapter, and a 100-400mm telescopic camera and lens and the head did amazing. Highly recommend this hands down! Great job Wiser Precision.

The Night Hawk tripod head is fantastic.

Great tripod head

This tripod head is super lightweight, compact, and smooth. It locks down tight enough that it holds up my 20-60 X 80mm spotting scope without issues. I recommend this to anyone looking for a strong yet light-weight tripod head.

Must have item!!

Pros:
This panhead is everything I was hoping for ultra light weight and a small form factor. I have this attached to my Slik PRO CF-633 and couldn't be happier with this setup. The panning provides plenty of adjustment in vertical and horizontal movement and is smooth throughout the range of motion.
Cons: The pan lever does hit the Slik base when looking at a downward angle. This might not happen on a different style tripod. Also, when panning left or right it does slightly rebound in the opposite direction when you stop panning. I believe there is some sort of rubber seal in there that makes this happen.
All in all the cons are very small items to bring up but they are there.
This is a must have item if you're looking to cut weight on your gear but keep the quality you need.

Finally a capable panhead in a lightweight package

I've been on the search for a highly capable panhead that could support a large spotting scope, and yet was light enough to entice me to make the switch from a simple ball head. Finally! This panhead supports my 88mm spotter in any position, pans smooth, and shaved 3oz off my kit from the ball head I had been using!

Glassing for Elk

I just returned from an Elk Hunt in Colorado. My Son was using the Wiser Precision Quick Clip with his 3rd Leg , just like me, but he had a differant Co.s Pan Head System. He was not happy with his purchase, but was very impressed with my new NightHawk Ultalight Pan Head! The Guides we were using liked the Whole System as well ! Very Satisfied !
