Promaster FW20T Featherweight Tripod User Reviews
FW20T tripod, excellent quality, great for travel
“I really like the lever type locking mechanisms that secure the legs and the feel of the tripod is higher quality than the price would suggest. My rating at five stars may be a little overstated, because while the tripod is excellent, the promaster ball head (BH20) that comes with it is not. You can use it for very light cameras, but I would not suggest it for cameras that approach the maximum load limit of about 4 lbs. The round piece that secures to the camera and to the tripod is “flimsy” and I found it difficult to lock securely in place by the screw type pin. I quickly decided to replace the ball head with a Promaster BH26. It cost me an extra $50, but now I can trust the ball head when it is holding my Nikon D90 with 18-200 MM lens. This adds about an inch and slightly more weight, but it is not significant enough for my travel considerations. In summary, excellent tripod, but reconsider the ball head. “ – By GBAusTx
