Not made to last - Like using on legos

  • Excerpt: Saw some decent reviews on this thats why I bought it, but after about 6 months everything started falling apart. The fasteners where each joint is are very very poorly constructed. On a real estate shoot with my clients one of the joints fell apart and nearly toppled over the tripod and camera on it! I would have cried if it did happen.<br /><br />Sooner after even with minimal weight on one of the legs it would slowly retract back into itself. <br /><br />Dont buy it!

Flexible Tripod!

  • Excerpt: I actually was able to check out the Manfrotto 055XProB and the Flashpoint 1022CF but finally settled on this one because it fits my purpose.It is not much lighter than the 055XProB, but in my opinion, not as refined as the Manfrotto. For example, when you raise the column and you have not loosened the screw out all the way, the rubbing sounds like a finger scratching a blackboard; first reviewer is correct that paint could be marred easily.

Does NOT come with a 3-Way Ball Head!

  • Excerpt: This was my first &quot;real&quot; tripod and I was trying to decide between it and the Manfrotto 055XPROB. I'm happy with my choice. It offers everything the Manfrotto does, but the center column mount has a swivel feature. That swivel action also comes in handy when setting the column in a lateral position as you can swing the camera into the most stable position. I like that the lateral arm adjustment is geared to prevent any kind of sag.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Great value, Umlimited Positions, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: No Carry Strap Included
