Excerpt: I really like the light weight and sturdy legs on this set up. Didn't care for the Pistol Grip Head on it though. I do like the Pistol Grip Head but I replaced it with an Oben Travel Ball Head. I am using the Pistol Grip on my mono-pod because it seems better suited for that type of set up.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: The legs of this tripod work as they should. The leg clamps have Allen bolts that need tightening once or twice per year. It is sturdy yet lightweight and comes with a very nice carry bag and short center column. I do wish the short column had a bag hook on it like the long one does, but oh well.
Excerpt: I ditched the head the second I bought and mated it with my manfrotto 498rc2. For what I do (wilderness/ hiking/ urban exploring/ decaying buildings) this is perfect. Its compact and light. Strong and cheap pricing.
Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
