Whilst waiting for my Singapore trip to pick up a Markins head I've been looking at tripods on the web and here too.

It seems the Feisol 3342/3442 are just over 1kg and will support 10kg at half the price of a Gitzo 2 series. . They don't have centre columns which is great coz I don't want one! This new "Tournament Class" line seems to get pretty favourable reviews too...

They will ship here too and are remarkably responsive to email enquiry - even at 6am on a Sunday morning!

I am 5' 9"/1.77m - if I fitted a M10 and D200 atop a 3442 would it be high enough? My guess is that it would be OK without a column - I don't much want a monopod on top of a tripod?

And - please - tell me the bad things about Feisol Tournament Class tripods .. and also their 1401 Monopod which appears to be a steal?

Thanks
