Returned and Reordered
“I received this item and it was missing a leg so I had to return it. I am not knocking the tripod, or the company but the first was the older syle. I needed the tripod so I reordered a more recent model and it is amazing! Light and easy to work. Very happy with this tripod. I have a Manfrotto monopod, but if I were to do it over, I would buy a Induro Corbonflex because of the weight and quality. More money, but after you spend the money you have to live with the product and this product will last a life time and one I am very happy with.” – By Georgia Embrechts
amazing professional tripod – one defect
“While I have only used this tripod briefly, I am very pleased with it after carrying it around and using it all weekend to capture some long exposure shots in beautiful Rothenburg (odT). It is definitely a “huge” step up from my several cheap plastic $20 tripods. This feels much sturdier in every degree of motion and just locks “solid” like a professional tripod should – except for one case mentioned below… I love the twist grip locks for the legs! This is so quick and perfect for use in cold weather with gloves on – all it takes is 1/2 a turn! I also really appreciate the flexibility to move the legs around independently – as well as the center column – there is just so much versatility! Add on a ballhead and you can get any shot you want at any angle.” – By Brian Wiese
“I have this tripod for 9 months and have been very pleased with the quality so far. In answer to several reviews that I have read here, I have to tell you that the leg locking system is fine if you don’t over tighten the legs. A half turn is all you need. I also have an Induro monopod and overtightened the locking mechanism. If you do they will always slip out of place. I am lucky to live 10 minutes from their headquarters in Elmsford, NY. I took the monopod there and they changed the gaskets in ten minutes and explained that only a little pressure is all that is needed to lock the legs. I have not had any trouble with the tripod legs, same system, and have found the tripod to be sturdy and versatile because of the horizontal bar, which can be useful under certain conditions… I have it and the new bag is perfect! Tripod and ballhead fit quite comfortably, so I’m a happy camper. I can’t tell you if they are sending the new bag with the tripod now, but it is available, so that shouldn’t be an issue. Overall, I am very happy with this tripod and can recommend it highly.” – By gabriel saland

Induro Carbonflex 8x CX114 Features & Specifications
The Induro CX114 Carbonflex 8X CX-Series Tripod Legs is a professional-level carbon fiber tripod that features an innovative center column design. In a rapid and easy motion, the center column can be converted from a standard vertical column to a horizontal cross bar, with angle adjustment flexibility. In the horizontal position, a mounted camera can have a clear view without the tripod legs getting in the way. This makes it especially ideal for nature, flat art, close-up micro photography. The column can also be used upside down and reversed.
CX-series tripods uses 8-layer, 2nd generation carbon fiber technology for its leg construction. This 8x tubing is 60% stronger overall than conventional carbon fiber tripods. This is achieved by using more fibers and less epoxy in the manufacturing blend.
