Smaller than expected (which is good)

  • Excerpt: It's hard to imagine a better tripod with a price/ weight/ size combination.<br /><br />It's so light and small, I was disappointed when I unboxed and extended it fully. I was like, &quot;there's no way this thing isn't going to be a wobbler.&quot; <br /><br />Boy was I wrong, it's smoother and WAY more solid than I expected.<br /><br />Pushing the to the weight limit with a spotting scope did wobble a little bit though.

  • Excerpt: This is my first pro-level tripod (or at least my first expensive one I didn't buy at [@]). I do photography, but mostly DSLR video. I love this tripod. It's easy to use and the head is nice and fluid. My only complaints: I wish it could get taller. You have to take off one of the arms on the head to fit it in the bag.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Relatively short
