Not very well made., 9 April 2012
The first thing to say about this tripod is that it seemed great for the first couple of days. Sturdy and tough. However, within the first week of purchase the tripod head broke off. I hadn't done anything rough with it or manhandled it in any way. Also, my SLR is not even very heavy. On inspection, the thread of the screw holding everything in place had completely fallen apart and one of the metal ridges that holds it in the right place had simply snapped off. The only reason that I didn't return it straight away is that I thought it may still be salvageable by using some araldite, unfortunately it soon broke again. There was a long pause between it breaking and my trying to fix it which is why I'm only just now writing this review. The bottom line is, bits of it were falling off in quite a few places, it just doesn't seem to be made very well. If it didn't break so quickly then I would be writing that it is a great tripod as I was certainly satisfied while it did work. Broke far too quickly and for no apparent reason though.
