Excerpt: One thing say's it all; I bought this tripod sometime between 1980 and 1985 and it is still going strong. That makes it between thirty and thirty-five years old and I don't use it all that often which is probably why it is still in almost-new condition.
Excerpt: Best tripod that i have ever used. Yes it is a little heavy but if you want your camera to be stable, you need it to be a little heavy. All around good tripod. It is very smooth and easy to use. I also like the hight that it can go as well.
Excerpt: The Slik Able 300DX has been around for years. It's a proven tripod. I love the sturdiness of it & the center column is reversible. Lots of good things to say about this tripod... I bought this one for my daughters birthday because of how much I like the one I bought myself about 15 years ago.
Excerpt: I recently used this tripod while traveling in the UK and Europe for fifteen weeks. I just loved it! It is sure, solid, and well made. The "controls" are easy to use. When you turn / crank-down on ANY control, it is solid as a rock, and stays put, even with a (fairly) heavy EOS 6D, with battery...
Excerpt: I've used this for landscapes, portraits, weddings, and night events and I like it so far. As this is my first tripod purchase, I am highly satisfied with it's capabilities. i.e.: Nice range of motion, sturdiness due to the heavier weight, ease of use.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
