Summary: Overall a good product, legs lock in very tight, unlocks and folds with ease. The geared column works well but cranking it up is tricky because the crank doesn't lock in well as you turn it. My biggest complaint is that the mounting plate was not properly attached to the column - it came off one time, but luckily I was holding the tripod head and saved the camera. It seems that the plate was held in place by nothing more than a thin layer of adhesive.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
