Induro Carbon 8X CT214 User Reviews

Very Stable and light
“I bought this tripod mainly to use for travel and portable use. I have an older Gitzo, can remember the model, but that thing with ball head must weigh close to 10 lbs. Although the Induro is less than half the weight of my older tripod, it feels as stable if not more so than the Gitzo. I believe that the carbon fiber has better vibration damping qualities than my older pod. Photos are as sharp with this light weight tripod as with my heavy Gitzo. In fact I like this Induro so much that it will probably be my main tripod in my home studio as well. “ – By Roverrich

Smaller but Still Strong
“I purchased a big brother to this tripod and found it rendered outstanding stability. So I decided that I could get a smaller/lighter version and still have enough stability for most of my needs. I was right. It provides just that. Notice also that it comes with a case, tools, and spike feet that can be interchanged with the rubber ones that come on the tripod. I highly recommend the tripod. I use it with it with an Acratech ball head (less than one pound) and it makes a good combination. “ – By GeneBo

Light, strong – what more could you ask
“I have been very happy with this tripod. It comes with a nice nylon carrying case, so slinging it over my shoulder on a hike is easy. The light weight makes it easy to carry in the field. It opens quickly and seems very stable when open. Overall this is a great tripod. “ – By J. Riloff
