Summary: This is a very nice tripod at a very reasonable price. It is fairly lightweight, very sturdy, and collapses nice and small. I would recommend this tripod to anyone looking for a goo solid tripod without spending a fortune.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Summary: I really love these tripod legs. The amount of versatility they offer is amazing for the the price. The quality is high and I exepect this tripod to last a long time. The locking is smooth and fast, the quick release locks are even better but those I felt were not worth the extra 50 for me.
Pros: Center column, Good Stability, Independant leg angle, Unfolds Quickly
Summary: I finally decide to up grade my sticks. Although these are not the best sticks made by bogen they are a very nice entry level sticks. They seem to be very well built and are very easy to operate.
