Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a new tripod to mount my 600mm AF-S. I currently have an old Gitzo 1410, but the time has come for its retirement. I have been leaning towards the Induro C414. The load capacity (55lbs) and height, which I believe is 68" +/- unextended seem perfect for me. I am also exploring other options. It seems Feisol is popular on this forum. The load capacity is somewhere around 26 lbs, which may be sufficient for my equipment, but I like the idea of extra strength. I am a wildlife photographer, so the lighter the better. I would like to avoid the price of a Gitzo, but will go there if necessary. Your suggestions and advice are greatly appreciated.
