Extremely happy with my purchase
“I absolutely love this tripod. It’s superbly well made, has that professional “heft”, feel and sturdiness, all of which scream “professional”. Also, all of its actions are butter-smooth, though the feel is tight, not sluggish and it has none of that wobbliness that is quite common to other tripod models. It’s nice to the touch, with its “leg warmers” and the alloy also feels light and sturdy. I really like the quickness of its flip-levered secured locks It’s superbly sturdy, VERY tall, even without extending the middle column, which could also be reduced in size by unscrewing half of it.” – By Alexxir
“This tripod is a superb, high quality piece of equipment. The craftsmanship, fit, finish, and functionality make it a top value for the price. Legs lock in solid at the desired height. No creeping after lock in. It will extend high enough for step ladder use, while remaining remarkably stable at maximum height. The cushioned upper legs are particularly nice as they add a measure of insulation for your hands on cold days and they will protect furniture and other items from damage upon light contact.” – By THE COLONEL
Great tripod for a great price
“Much cheaper than Bogden/Manfrotto, but still solid construction and very flexible. I bought this to photograph a wedding last summer and have used it ever since for a variety of things from portraits to product photos. “ – By A. Mitu
