Excerpt: This product arrived this afternoon but I can tell already i am going to be fine with it. I am an older guy but find the units solid build to be very beneficial. I will be packing this around all the time, often at 10,000 + ft altitudes. It is not that heavy.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Pros: Attaches Firmly, Easy to adjust, Good Stability
Excerpt: I just recieved this tripod today, and although I haven't had time to use it yet, it is very well designed and very well built. It is a bit on the heavy side but not so much that it would hinder carrying for landscape photography.
Pros: Excellent build quality, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly, Very Smooth Movement
