    I'm looking to setup a tripod to shoot from. Being that this setup will be used for hunting (small caliber, distances inside 200 yards), weight and ease of deployment are factors to consider (and cost). This will likely involve setting up on uneven terrain, so the ability for some canting is also a requirement.

    For a tripod, I'm thinking the SLIK 700DX should work. What I need to decide is what type of tripod mount to use. Ball head mounts seem to be most popular for this purpose, but they vary from $30 to $300+. The "Reaper Rail" from Kopfjager Industries looks like a good solution, as a buy once, cry once, option. Any suggestions?
