Excerpt: i received my tripod and i am happy how light and solid it feel. i was very disappointed with UPS, because they drop it off at my house with out me signing for it. thank God my daughter arrive home from work, and brought the tripod into the house.
Excerpt: Well made, sturdy, easily adjusted center column. Nice case. I like that the spikes are separate. I have a nice scratch on my BMW from another tripod where the spikes were inadvertently exposed - don't care to repeat that! If I remove the head it will fit in my suitcase on the diagonal.
Excerpt: I love Benro products and found this because I had purchased another brand of tripod based on the reviews and hated it. B&H took it back without any trouble and I wrote to Benro telling them what I was looking for and they recommended their Induro line.
Excerpt: Works better than expected. Perfect for my active photo trips. The twist locks operate easily with gloves in cold weather. I am around 6' tall and this tripod fully extended stands way above my head if needed. I was worried about the weight of this while on my long hikes, but it's really packable.
Excerpt: Bought the CT314, my first carbon fiber tripod, for it's height without extending the center column, which I will replace with the shorter version in order to shoot low. That would have been a nice option at purchase. It's a bit bulkier than I expected, but lighter than I expected, also.
Excerpt: This tripod is built like a tank. I ordered both the CT314 and CT214 as I was undecided in which would better fit my needs. After much consideration, the bulkier size of the 314 meant it had to go back to B&H. I just didn't need the additional size for my set-up.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: This was recommended by B&H for my purposes and I am very happy with the quality and performance. I shoot with a Canon 7D and Sigma 150-500 lens and this tripod provides the stability and ease of handling I need. It is top shelf quality and rock solid.
