I love this tripod

  • Excerpt: This tripod is lightweight and rigid. It sets up quickly, goes real high and down pretty low. It has good weight capacity. Panning with a 504HD is smooth and without play. I've used it with a small jib and it was very stable and had strength to spare. It's been mounted on an Orbit Dolly and used with Flex Trac. I've also picked up an adapter and have even mounted a Wimberley head and a long lens for doing wildlife stills.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Cumbersome

Great bang for the buck!

  • Excerpt: I love this tripod! It is extremely stable, quick to set up, and nice and light for it's size. I primarily use this tripod with my Edelkrone slider attached to a 100mm half ball and so far it has been the perfect choice of legs for this use. I read a few reviews saying that it was difficult to switch the angle of the legs to shoot extra low, but I have had the exact opposite experience. Great tripod. Great price.

Great for Prod/ Run & Gun hybrid shooter

  • Excerpt: First, if you are strictly a run & gun* shooter, especially a solo R&G shooter, you will more than likely need something smaller and lighter than these legs. But if you are a team R&G shooter, and if you are moving into more production style shoots, then these legs are great. These legs are on the low end of professional heavy duty but are quick setup tripod legs.

Solid, varsitile

  • Excerpt: Love that it can so super low and serve as a high hat style mini tripod. And has decent height, also very light and quick easy setup. The leg locks are solid and at first I was worried they may slip, but after getting the tripod, it's pretty well thought out design. I'm an indie filmmaker shoot on red scarlet and this a great setup at good price.

Broad capability

  • Excerpt: This unit has the range of height and inherent strngth that comes with carbon fibre. Tripod choice is about the application and efficiency. In this case it allows us to use the unit in the enviornment in which we work. e will use other legs in a studio situation but for field work as well as event recording, these are well built and do the job.

Big and awesome

  • Excerpt: Compared to other sticks in the same price range these offer the most flexibility I have see. Used it a couple of times for work already and I am extremely happy with the speed to get the height I want. They are solid like a rock and have no torque. Couldn't ask for anything more except that they were about 1 lb less but that is a minor complaint.
  • Pros: Good Stability, No Torque, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

Nice, Very Nice!

  • Excerpt: I'm no Manfrotto fan boy, but this carbon fiber tripod is great. Everyone remarks about the extreme height. How high is high? I am a little better than 6' tall, and with this tripod fully extended and a Manfrotto 100mm half ball adapter with long handle, I can easily walk through the legs. In fact, I can stand fully erect beneath the tripod, and the half ball handle does not touch the top of my head. I purchased this tripod for video.
