    Looks great. What size tripod do you need? 100mm bowl? Or something different?

     It’ll work with any tripod that is rated to hold 17lbs or more. It has an industry standard 3/8 16 thread on the bottom. So you can put it on a photo tripod or a bowl mount using a half ball leveler. You can even connect the quick release from your video head to it if you are in a hurry.
