I am looking for a new tripod. I have recently seen an ad for a Silk 713 carbon fibre tripod at my local camera shop for £129, which is about £200 cheaper than an equivalent Gitzo sold by the same dealer.

Does anyone have any experience with the Silk 713? I don't want to spend money foolishly (i.e. I don't want another wobbly set of legs), but since I do not use a tripod that often, spending £350+ is a bit of a luxury that cannot be readily justified.

Thanks in advance for your help.
