    A solid and decent priced tripod. Works exactly as it should and feels sturdy for my gear yet light weight. Worth the cost.

    Tripod overall is a decent product however the plate that attaches to the camera body will not hold camera tight, therefore comes loose and needs adjusting frequently.

    Great for the price, but wish the legs were not the screw type.

    I'm glad that I spent the extra money and bought a tripod that can handle a lot of weight. Also I'm pleased with the adjustability of the legs.

    This is a good, solid tripod, for the money. Great quality, I am not a fan of this type of quick release, I would have much rather gotten the spring loaded lever type, but it does the job.

    Very happy with this product. Seem sturdier than many of the plastic tripods we've looked at. Just seems well-made.

    This is a rock solid and versatile tripod. Its probably the best in its price range. Nice to get something of this quality without breaking the bank.

    Great little tripod for the money. It's a name you can trust. I have several heavy tripods by the same brand and trust them to work consistently for my business. If you need something light, this will definitely fit the bill.

    I am a plein air painter and I will use this for outdoor painting to support my pochade box. Manfrotto is always the recommended tripod to use and most artists who paint own one! The price was reasonable and I could have upgraded but I think this tripod will serve me well. Not super heavy and easy to use.

    The tripod is one of the best-kept secrets! It's strong enough for almost any DSLR camera and able to support my entire 3 axles gimbal dual handle setup that includes stereo mic amp, LED light kit, 7" monitor, batteries and attachments. This tripod is full size in height but reduces to a size that fits in my bag. With all that said, it's light weight, has a professional look with a decent price point for the average consumer.

    You can get lighter and more compact, but trade off cost and stability. I think this pod is a good blend. I got it on sale and took advantage of a buy 3 camera accessories and get one at 25% off to really save on this. It seems stable and folds well. Time will tell how easy it is to use in the field as I just got it and haven't really been able to use it.

    Well made quality product. Will definitely be proud to own. Smooth precise movement with a weighty feel exudes premium quality. Heft allows this tripod to function in breezy conditions while providing a solid foundation for your equipment. My only complaint is that the telescoping legs loc with a screwing motion verses the cam levers that are quicker to set up.

    I purchased this tripod as an open box item in store. It had a few issues. Who ever tried to pack it back into the box dismantled the legs. I took it home and after a little work it is like new. Very light. The monopole feature is great. A nice investment purchased at a great price.
