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.
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.
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.
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.
- Made in the USA!

- Independent control of pan and tilt axes
- Axis seals to keep grease in and moisture and dirt out!

I got a chance to try it out from a buddy before I purchased and was amazed. Even being so compact, it functions better than larger heads I've used. It is the perfect amount of tension on the vertical and horizontal. It's awesome for my binos and my 65mm spotter. If you're on the fence, just get it. You won't regret it!
Wiser Precision has a fantastic set of products. They work well together.
Can't wait to get in the field to use the quick clip in action!
Items arrived quickly,I am looking forward to an August Dall sheep hunt and will be using the pan head,third leg, and quick sticks as my glassing tripod to reduce some pack weight.
Compared to pan heads that weigh 2x - 4x as much, you won't be compromising stability for almost every optic that you put on it. This thing is unbelievably smooth and locks up tight. Love that the arca slots get wider than normal so you can set your rifle on it instead of having to slide it on.
Love the product and the customer service was excellent will recommend to all family and friends
I used this in Colorado on a hunt and it was awesome. I’m very impressed with how lightweight yet sturdy it is. Very easy to use and most importantly it’s very smooth to be glassing while moving at the same time
I purchased the shooting sticks, the third leg and the pan head. I have not yet used the shooting sticks but I think they are going to work well. The Panhead was really quite nice with my binoculars. I don’t think it’ll work well with my spotting scope because of it’s weight.
