In searching for an illustration of the WX tripod adapter, I stumbled across this site: There's a lot of interesting stuff here on the design considerations, the initial development and quality control.
The tripod adapter is shown below the specifications and after a second look at Patudo's photo, it does appear to be the same. With a 2,5 kg binocular one doesn't need to lighten the adapter by milling out voids! It's so flimsy that the WX can oscillate on the adapter. However, IMO that's the only criticism one could level at the WX. Weight, bulk and price are just inevitable consequences of the optical requirements.
