Thought I was not going to like the stiffness when unlocked. But with camera attached to tripod, I love the resistance the leveling base provides. I feel confident my camera won't fall over and am able to easily find level.
Solid heavy duty build for my tabletop setup or elsewhere. The 15-degree leveler works well, doesn't drift, useful for awkward positions outdoors without the hassle of repositioning my ballhead.
I think that you get much more quality for what you spend. They are not cheap, but I mean : the carbon fiber weaving, the quality of the fixtures, the light weight.... it is ooozing quality all over.
I have Been hunting with this tripod for a year now. Lightweight, super strong and stable. Makes a great glassing and shooting tripod. Taken big game out to 562 yards off it. Carried it for over 100miles on foot strapped to a pack. Shot rifles up to 300 Norma Magnum off it. No issues. Excellent tripod.
I have own and used tripods from a number of top tier brands - and paid the top tier prices - but they last. Cry once and you are covered. But I have struggled to find a good tripod for the lighter side - smaller lenses and cameras, but still tall and steady. Most of the less expensive stuff is either too short or not real steady. This is the first I have found that is taller and compact and steady. Built like a really good tripod, but at a fraction of the cost. My first exposure to Leofoto, but not my last. Time will tell on durability, but so far I am really pleased with this tripod.
