Carbon Fiber Tripod Expert Series - Small
Effortlessly keep your camera steady and stable with this Carbon Fiber Tripod from Monoprice!
This tripod is constructed of carbon fiber, which provides the most strength and least weight possible.

It weighs only 38.8 oz., can accommodate up to 22 lbs. weight capacity, and when folded for storage, measures only 13.1" long. It features a 3/8"x16 screw mount for attaching a camera head (not included). A zippered nylon carrying/storage bag is also included.

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.
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.
