Beware of the Clamps

Excerpt: I own the Vanguard Alta Pro 263 AT with GH-100 head. In the course of a week I had to use the tool it came with to tighten the clamps three times because the leg would all of a sudden start retracting.
Excerpt: After years of searching for a stable tripod with lots of features at a decent price, finally I purchased the Alta Pro 263AGH. This is the answer to my requirements for both birding and macro imaging.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
Excerpt: This is an awesome tripod for video, stationary photo shooting, or anything which does not require lightweight use like back packing. The pistol grip head is amazing. I will never use anything else. Everyone who tries it oohs and aahs. The engineering and build on this are excellent.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
Excerpt: I use this for exploring and landscape work, but it's also great in the studio. I needed a tripod that could handle a D800 with battery grip and considerable glass weight that would enable me to make quick/precise adjustments.
Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
Excerpt: Light weight, stable love the pistol grip. Bought this tripod to use with my spotting scope. Much happier with this tripod then the previous one. Love the adjustable angle on the legs. Great product.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight
Excerpt: It's reasonably light and comes with a carrying bag (but not travel tripod light). Also, extremely versatile with the adjustable neck and pistol grip. I was worried the legs would be stiff to adjust, but they're a breeze.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Great Value, Locks In Tight, Many Features, Smooth Movement, Versatile
Excerpt: The tripod is excellent quality. This version comes with a pistol grip, but you can get several other heads. There's many great features, and it's fast to set up. Comes with a nice carrying bag.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Great Value, Locks In Tight, Neck Goes Horizontal, Pistol Grip Included, Smooth Movement
