Good quality tripod
“This is a very good tripod for the money. It is extremely light, it feels high-quality, the tension on the grips and adjustments is just right, and it collapses down to quite a manageable size. Other things I appreciate are the high-quality case it comes with (which was sized to fit not just the tripod but a ballhead base and attachment–a nice touch);…. All in all it’s quick to set up, sturdy, light, and feature-rich, and the nice touches made me feel like these guys want to be seen as a real leader in the space.” – By Aspiring Wannabe Photographer
“I’m totally delighted with it! It comes as advertised, including things that are extras for other tripods: a nice carry case, all tools, spiked and rubber feet, a level and a weight hook on the center post. Fit and finish is great! Tripod legs aren’t useful without a head so I also bought the B1 ball head (also great) and the tripod with head fits in the bag – a nice feature. Overall a great buy!!” – By Bob
Compact and light weight
“It’s leight, it’s farily compact and feels sturdy. At first it seem to light to hold 17 lbs but once it set up the camera stays in place. I’m using my Manfrotto grip head with it, i could get even more compact with a smaller ball head. Shoudl be great for travel where size and space are a concern. Depending on the camera you shoot I would consider a more heavy duty tripod rated at over 25 lbs.” – By Tye’s photography
First “real” tripod
“Light weight, sturdy, solid construction. Can be set up or taken down in less than a minute. Lots of cool little ways to configure it. This is my first pro-sumer class tripod, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I’m quite happy with it. Carry case and interchangeable feet included, as well as a tool kit with all the items you’ll need to make adjustments. Everything fits nice and neat into the carry case. While you can just mount a camera on top of it, I do recommend getting a head for it.” – By D. Beahn
