Excerpt: I wanted something lightweight for traveling and this seemed to be ideal. Worked fine for about a year and now the leg spread has lost the tension and the legs just flap around when not planted on the ground. Yes, I have tightened the adjustments to a point where the wrench is about to break.
Excerpt: Bought this tripod to use on location shoots that I fly too. Weight and size are an issue for checking bagage. The tripod is great for all the different positions you can configure it to. It is really light compared to my aluminum Gitzo.
Excerpt: There are big compromises between light and rigid where tripods are concerned. I tried a few at my local shop and found them rather willowy when extended but they were light. This guy is not the lightest but it is one of the steadiest at its fighting weight.
Excerpt: Should have purchased sooner. I have purchased several different tripods, keeping cost down. combined I have spent the same amount and have three dogs. I should have made the leap for this unit a long time ago. Very light weight, solid and easy to use. Lives up to the description.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Accesories, Good Case, Lightweight
Excerpt: Have had it for a month now. Bought it with a sirui head and the combo is great. I'm 6'2 and have to stoop a little if I don't extend the post, but it's very comfortable. Very sturdy despite light weight.
Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: This is not a travel tripod, but is lightweight and strong enough to be used for shots of wildlife; it is also excellent in the studio for portraits or macro shots. I'm very pleased with it. The ball head will hold a 300mm lens firmly, but a larger head or a gimble is recommended for longer lens.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
