Summary: This tripod is definitely sturdy and well built. The legs and center column adjust smoothly and easily once you get the hang of them. The quick release plate sticks a little bit, but not so much that it can't be used. Overall it is a decent product for the price. If you have the money, I would recommend getting a lighter model, because this one is definitely heavy.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Rugged
