The best tripod at this price. Never got a chance to complain as per to the quality of this product. I am a filmmaker and I also travel a lot so, I needed something portable and durable. So , indeed I did some research and I came across many tripod but this was not listed in that. I thought this tripod will be a good investment and I bought it without any questions. Again an excellent service by Amazon I got this particular item just in two days!! It was nice packaged and when I opened it. There was a nice sling bag inside which was the tripod. At first having the tripod in my hand felt professional and sturdy. Now I use my heavy DSLR with a rig with is really heavy to keep steady. And this chap handles it without any problem. Everything works just fine. Pros - 1. It has a good load capacity 5-6kg 2. It is really sturdy 3. Easy to carry 4. Smooth pan head Cons - 1. It' s a bit heavy for travelling 2. Extending handle is flimsy Nothing more to say about it. Just go for it!
