Carbon 8X CT213 Tripod by Induro
“Great tripod. Moved up from an aluminum tripod and the weight difference is noticeable. easy to setup and the number of positions is excellent. Great build and stability. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade to carbon fiber.” – By J Tammaro

Great Tripod
“This is a great tripod. I love how lightweight it is, and its very sturdy. The only thing I wish it did differently was fold a little smaller for easier carrying (strapped to pack), but that was by no means a dealbreaker.” – By Thunderdog

Above suitable for my needs
“I needed a tripod that was sturdy enough to stand up to my treks through the woods around the local lakes. I also had occasional need to mount the camera low for macro and this tripod let me mount the panhead low. I’m very satisfied with this unit and would recommend it to anyone looking for a sturdy tripod.” – By Steve

By far the best tripod I’ve ever handled
“Outstanding design and workmanship. This is a very high quality product, and I have no reason to doubt that it will still be performing long after I am able to go birding. Even with the vertical tube fully retracted, it is tall enough for me (5′ 8″). It is rock solid stable with a rather heavy scope (Pentax 80 mm ED with 20 – 60 zoom eyepiece) sitting on top. With the gimbal mount, it is simply a joy to use. As one of my photography gurus (Tom Cory) says,”There are two kinds of tripods: those that are easy to carry, and good ones”. The Induro is the latter.” – By GHerman
