What kind of tripod is recommended for using
with a Nodal Ninja 3 MKII pano head.

The regular tripods have a dettachable piece
which is not strong enough to hold the weight
of pano head and the camera.

Basically any tripod will work but it's like buying a pair of shoes and highly user end specific.
As long as the tripod is sturdy (personally I don't like the hand crank models).

Here is a thread on what others are using:

One important thing is that head of tripod has to be robust and study, and not lousy as sometimes it occurs as weight of head + camera + lens will get all that to move if it's lousy, and so problems then :wink:

As with some tripods that have very thin legs.

Right, same problem also when you use the new nadir adapter as it offset camera weight pretty far from center of tripod :-\

And get a tripod which raises to around 1,50cm without middle column raised.

Helps to keep your back healthy.

Yes, cause you raise the center column for 5 cm and add the nn5, I am 183cm and can look through my camera without bending. :001_cool:
