I'm trying to decide between these two Bogen tripods. The 3221WN looks better in these regards: Max ht w/o column extension 54.3" vs 53.0"; min ht 3.2" vs 4.3"; includes padding on upper legs vs no padding; 3221 has spiked feet as well. Drawbacks of the 3221WN include wt of 6.2 lbs vs 5.3 lbs for 3021BPro, and $13 additional cost.

I suspect the additional pound of weight (0.5kg) would be a drawback on hikes, offsetting the inch or so of height variations. The padding I could install myself for a couple dollars using pipe insulation. The spiked feet, for outdoor work, would be handy, though.

Anyone used both and care to compare? I've seen many mentions of the 3021, but none of the 3221.
