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. Will be using on landscapes as well as wildlife photography. I need to have a piece that is durable and stable. This tripod certainly fills the bill.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
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. The head is also very well built and has smooth steady action for panning. If you choose this tripod/head combo, you will not be disappointed. I am very happy with my choice.
Pros: Excellent build quality, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly, Very Smooth Movement
