I just got my Feisol CT-3371. It seems like a very stable tripod.

I open it to it to full height, with the tripod head and d200 on it would be almost as tall as me. Almost 6 foot.

At its full height it was wobble. I moved the top legs in by about 6 inches and it became very stable.

The carbon fiber seems plasticly to me. From a perception stand point metal feels strong. But I love the reduced wait of the carbon fiber.

I bought the tripod from feisol.com. It was back ordered but I received in in two weeks. The people at Feisol were very profession and very prompt with their email responses. I would do business with them again

I took the following picture with my d200, Tokina 400mm 5.6 and Nikon sb-800 flash. The picture turned out very well. The tripod was stable when I took the photo.
