Not sure betwen this and the Cullmann clamps? I want to put the Kowa TSN772 I recently got from you on it.

Both the Opticron and the Cullmann (with the video head) hide clamps should comfortably take the weight of the Kowa TSN772.

The Cullmann is a little bit neater to carry, but the Opticron has a longer and more adjustable column.

I would probably lean towards the Opticron, but there is not much to choose between them.

Will the RSPB AG-80 scope fit the mounting for this hide clamp?

The Opticron Hide Clamp has a standard 1/4" Whitworth thread, so it should fit most (if not all) spotting scopes.

It is unlikely that the RSPB would put a non-standard thread on their scopes, so should screw onto the head.

Is this clamp ok to use with the KOWA ts501 scope.

eebc - Chris.

Yes, the Kowa TS500 scopes would be fine on top of the Opticron Hide Clamp.

The Clamp can easily accomodate a TS500 scope.

Thank you for your comments.

We have sold a number of these to Canada (and indeed many countries of the British Commonwealth).
