Tackle Tuesday... Cygnet Sniper Weigh Tripods

Accuracy is always important when weighing any fish on the bank. A couple of ounces here or there might be the deciding factor as to whether your capture is a personal best or not.

The Cygnet Sniper Weigh Tripod’s pressed aluminium and moulded boss gives it complete stability for those important accurate readings and is perfect for the UK and abroad, due to its fully adjustable legs, extending right up to 80 inches. This means that it can accommodate the largest of weighing slings.

One thing that stood out for me was that the Sniper was extremely lightweight and compact. In fact, so much so that it would be simple enough to store away in your rod bag without taking up too much space.


The Sniper Euro really is the big-fish tripod. Just like the Sniper, it has a pressed and moulded aluminium block, with adjustable legs, and a slightly larger extension, from four to 82 inches, allowing even the largest of weighing slings to have an accurate reading, which is ideal for European anglers.

Gone are the days of tripods blowing over in the wind. You will be happy to hear that the guys at Cygnet have supplied three pivoting anchor feet and pegs with the Sniper Euro, to help keep it solidly pegged down in position.

As if that wasn’t enough, this lightweight and compact tripod comes in its very own signature Cygnet Carry bag with external pouches housing both the pivoting feet and pegs.
