"RE: Leg updates"

"That review included an image of the 3342 next to what I assume is his CT-213."

Actually, it was his 313. That's what I found annoying about that review. The gentleman didn't own a 213, but he recommended it as an alternative to the Feisol. I'm assuming he was accustomed to the mass on his 313, and the Feisol would definitely give a sense of flimsiness in comparison to that. It DOES feel very light/insubstantial. He accused Feisol of cheating on leg angles to get more height, but if he'd actually checked the published specs for the tripods, he would have seen that the opposite was true - Feisol has a marginally wider leg stance according to the published specs.

I wasn't so much springing to the defense of Feisol as I was suggesting that reading reviews on a vendor's site is probably not a good way to determine the merits of a product. You have no idea how qualified a reviewer is to make comments and that guy invalidated himself by making a demonstrably erroneous observation.

IMO, people are going to get much better and more objective comparisons and reviews by sticking right here on Nikonians than reading posts on a vendor's site. Your detailed and objective comments above are evidence of that.
