    Very nice travel tripod
    To preface this review, i purchased this tripod on sale for very cheap so my opinions are a bit slanted by the price. I also don't have a lot of hands on experience with many other tripods. But, I'll try and give as much detail as possible

    First impression is, WOW big bunch of carbon fiber with all metal fittings.and it looks like anything that threads into anything is metal, besides the carbon legs the only non metal that i have found on the tripod are the sleeves to apply tension on the leg sections and the rubberized coating on the twist locks

    everything feels smooth and lock up tight. fit and finish is pretty good. weight is very nice. with out the ball head it feels like nothing.

    Tripod feels fairly sturdy with ~2.5lbs binoculars mounted on a flat carpeted surface. Putting weight on it by hand it feels very solid and doesn't flex unduly or rock around.

    CONS:

    The thinner center column extension deflects quite a bit, I'm not really confident it would do well with the rated 22 pounds.

    When removing the center column to run in low profile mode there's a lot of play and you really have to screw it down pretty good as there's nothing supporting the 3/16 bolt once the center column is removed.

    Good buy over all, but maybe not worth the normal retail price.

    Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod
    The product is the right size and weight. Sturdy and fits in my backpack or luggage. The tripod could not be folded in its smallest form with the ball head on. A better designed Ballhead specific to this Tripod is needed...The recommended Ball head sold separately - which I did purchase is not totally Arca Swiss compatible I have some Arca Swiss Quick release plates that do not fit properly with out some modification. The width adjustment screw requires an Allen wrench for adjustment the socket head adjustment screw should have a larger diameter for easier hand tightening and or a rubber finish for better friction... and the tightening lever should be larger and Better positioned.
