    Bought this as an "open box excellent" which means all original parts and accessories. Well, the MAJOR part, the plate that you screw your camera to was missing making the tripod absolutely useless! And seeing as it was open box they would not replace it, only refund my money if I mailed it back, could not return to a store as it says I could in their own return rules. I did find a company that sells the plate and expecting it to arrive this week. Very disappointed in BB for not standing behind their open box status as to what is in the box. Other than that I think this will be a great tripod and can't wait to use it.

    I think it's too heavy. The reason you get carbon is for light weight. Luckily I got this to look cool and it does that extremely well. With isopropyl alcohol you can take the logo off so it looks stealth and more expensive.

    I was looking into getting a tripod for a wedding i shot. Out of 7 tripods, i made the choice of buying this one. Great quality, light obviously since its made out of carbonfiber. I love the look and design. Easy to use. And it extends to the perfect hight. Price is great.

    Great Tripod

    This tripod was medium priced. There are cheaper ones but I like the materials and construction of this one. I think it is well made. The legs can be swiveled open to any position. There are a couple of hard stops for a solid hold but the joint is stiff enough to allow use with any leg position. The leg extension clips lock well and I have no issue with slippage. The range of height on this tripod is really good. The swivel head allows for a full range of motion and also allows you to flip you camera or phone 90 degrees for easy portrait/landscape switch. The head does feel a little stiff, but I actually prefer it this way as I don't have to keep locking it down every time I move it. It is very stable in use and it does have a hook built in for hanging a weight for windy conditions. The rubber feet on the ends of the legs are really good. They are mounted on threads and you can screw them all the out when you want the tripod to stand on the rubber. When you screw them all the way in, metal tips are exposed for better stability in grassy areas.

    My favorite tripod ever! I guess it depends on what you plan to use the tripod for. I use it for recording YouTube videos primarily but also for photo shoots. This tripod has amazing quality and smooth movement for panning left to right or up and down giving a smooth flow for b-roll footage. It also has two levelers to assist with perfect positioning and it has easy adjustments for raising and lowering the tripod. It even comes with a carrying bag for travel. Now at first I was a bit skeptical about the quality of the product because the brand is notorious for making cheaply made plastic products. However, this one is solid, sturdy and incredible. On the other hand, it is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and that's quality!

    This tripod is very sturdy and I can tell that it will last me way longer than my old tripod. The carbon fiber poles help with strength and rigidity. Would recommend this tripod to any photographer or videographer.

    Great Entry Level Fluid Tripod

    While this isn't for the most hardcore, this tripod does work well for entry level video shooting where a fluid-style head is needed for panning shots. It does have some dampening for tilt, but isn't the strongest in the world. If you're after a fluid pan head, this one is great for the price and not heavy either.

    When I was looking for a tripod I needed one that would be tall enough for me. I’m 6’4” so I needed a tripod that would extend enough for me to use easily and this one works fine. It’s also light weight, sturdy and stable and easy to set up and take down.

    I've been very happy with this tripod and would recommend it for anyone starting to shoot video. It has a fluid head for both pan and tilt, so a very big plus and it is very light-weight when compared to other tripods of the same price.

    This is the best tripod I have ever owned. It makes setting up easier, very strong and durable material and easy to work with. I can't really find anything bad to say as it is the best tripod upgrade I have ever had.

    The tripod legs are really sturdy, however where the camera is supposed to be mounted is a little cheaply made. I used it for a shoot and tightened everything, but the camera still moved and seemed like it was going to fall.

    I feel like a professional with this tripod. I purchased this to capture all our kid’s school and extra curriculum performances. So far I have yet to be disappointed. The setup and device mounting are super easy. I use the tripod with just about all my devices (i.e. cam recorder, cell phone, camera, etc.). I travel just about everywhere with this thing and the durability of it is pretty decent. The adjustable height feature and swivel mount make capturing the perfect picture or video at any angel.
