Summary: The tripod performs well. It is sturdy, yet it’s lightweight (especially considering it’s not a composite). The leg release/locks are the twist type. They are not particularly fast but tighten easily and hold fast. Only one leg has a foam covering. It would be nice if at least two of the legs had the covering. This tripod is tall. I'm average height and only extend the bottom portion of the leg about 75% out which is a nice feature.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Rugged, Smooth Movement, Tall
