"RE: Travel Tripod CF - Feisol/Gitzo"
The 'L' in the Gitzo model number designates "Long", not Mountaineer.Any Gitzo style can come in an "L" configuration.Gitzo treats the Mountaineer as the "standard" configuration, giving it no special suffix. The Traveler series is appended with a "T", a Systematic with "S".A GT2541 is a standard height Mountaineer, the GT2541L is the "Long" version.A GT3542LS is a Long Systematic, and so on.Hope that helps to clarify their model numbering convention, which has evolved into something rather cohesive although it still generates much confusion .
