"RE: Leg updates"

I don't know if I would consider that person a previous owner. He bought it, used it once, and returned it. He compared it to a tripod that is was in a different class than the Feisol, and suggested an alternative that he doesn't own. His comment about the leg angles is simply incorrect. His Induro actually has a sharper leg angle than the Feisol: 24 degrees for the Induro vs 25 degrees for the Feisol (not that 1 degree difference makes a hill of beans).

He didn't like the tripod and returned it. That's ok - his choice, but I'd be more inclined to trust the opinions of people who have owned the tripod for some time, used it a lot, and have experience with a number of other tripods.

The Feisol is light, reliable, and quite stable when used with equipment that is appropriate to place on a tripod with the Feisol's specs.

Neil: note that the 3342 and 3442 legs also fold over the top of the tripod. I purchased a Feisol ball head to take advantage of that feature. The Feisol head can't touch my Arca Z1 for quality/ease of use, but it works acceptably and is lighter so I go with it when weight/space is a real concern.
