Default Tripod for spotting scope

Got myself a heckuva deal on a Vortex 20-60. I went ahead and bought the below Vanguard tripod after hearing decent stuff about the brand. For $60 its 2.2 lbs and seems decent.

Anyone have any better options? I bought mine from Amazon so it can go back if I find a better option.

Under $100. I settled on the one that I did because it seemed to be a sweet spot in price and weight. 2.2 lbs and $60. The more I saw that was 1.8 lbs was over $100. Not a lot of reduction for double the money.

I just used my Primos Trigger Stick, seemed to work great and a quick switch of the heads it becomes a shooting stick.
