The package is finished off with a lightweight Touring Series ergonomic grip and strap, and comes with 100 mm Powder Baskets.

FLICKLOCK® PRO - FlickLock Pro is the evolution of our trusted FlickLock design. The benefits that made our classic FlickLock design the best pole-locking mechanism on the market remain: it’s secure, fast and easy to use. The Pro’s new low-profile, stainless steel design, however, provides a dramatic improvement in quality, feel and clamping force.
