good product, attractive price
25 March 2018
Bought to replace an old and cheaper Vanguard tripod after a day looking around "The Photography Show" and originally selecting another make at nearly twice the price. Things I like: twist lock legs, ease of adjustment, secure and solid when set up. The ball head is also secure and when used with a 500mm lens on a crop sensor camera, giving an effective lens length of 800mm, there is very little movement when tightening everything up.
The tripod itself probably deserves 5 stars, but the way that Amazon package stuff results in one star being deducted. The tripod is supplied by the manufacture in a solid box that Amazon then place diagonally in a flimsy cardboard box about 3 feet x 2 feet stuffed full of paper roll, which arrived damaged
