As you can see here, I've had these legs for a long time. But my darling wife just bought be a 3 Legged Thing Equinox Leo, and 3 lightweight tripods is at least one too many. So it's time for this one to leave the forge.

This a 4-section carbon fiber tripod with a maximum leg diameter of 22mm. Without extending the center column, it's only has a 47" maximum height. It's best suited for point and shoot cameras and mirrorless cameras. While it has a rated capacity of 18 lbs, it's not a good choice for anything but the lightest of dSLR and lens combinations.

The leg tighteners have gotten finicky with age. I may have a bag for it in the basement, but I haven't used it in years. I'm willing to send it along if I find it, but I suggest leaving it in the sun for a few hours to guard against fungus. (EDIT -- I found the bag and it's in good shape.)

I'll take some snaps of the thing if there's any interest, but let's face facts. This is a pretty lame piece of kit. That's why my asking price is my actual shipping cost to you. Not only that, I'm asking that you donate that amount to charity rather than paying me.
