I did it, I killed another tripod. This is the fifth one that lays broken in a heap of dead tripods. I have been buying the cheap 30-80 dollar models some with QR heads and some without. I only get a year out of hem before the fal victum to abuse. I am extremely hard on all my equipment. I have only one 50 dollar tripod left, and I know I'm going to kill it. (Partially cause I hate this unit ) I want a Bogan, Could settle for a Slik, but realy crave a Gitzo, bu I fear if I dump the bucks in to a better bult tripod, it will still get killed and I'm out more money. So I need some help here. I try to avoid using tripods as a PJ as much as humanly possible, so I need light and fast, and a monopod will not cut it. I kill them faster than the pods.
