Excerpt: I use the feet on my Manfrotto Tripod for extra support and reduce movement! Things that I like about them is that they increase the contact area and support that the tripod rest on! Which help against camera shake!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy
Excerpt: The standard rubber feet are great for lots of indoors shooting, and some outside work. However, for serious outdoor photography, the spikes rule. They provided extra stability on rocks, into rivers, and lots of other places where you need extra grip.
Excerpt: Replaced the original cups with these and they make my older bogen/manfrotto tripod much more steady. It just increases the surface area to grip to the ground because it conforms to the angle of the surface whether it is flat or not. The difference is huge.
Excerpt: I had lost one foot out in the feild somewhere and wanted to get a replacement. These were pricey but. i thought they had a good dual use. They did indeed. I can put the tripod in more situations and placements now than i could before.I wish they came with the tripod .
Pros: Can shape to ground, Folds up neatly, Sticks in ground well
