    As ever, though, medium to long term reliability and robustness is where tripods fall down (literally, or else they lock solid!), and I'm not sure it's yet possible to say for TLT.
    My newest tripod is 20 years old, my oldest 35 years.

    I got a Black Friday deal on Amazon for a Benro, which is virtually the same thing. They are all so similar that I think they are all made in the same place but with different logos stuck on them.

    I bought and the returned the smallest carbon travel tripod a while ago. It was very wobbly and basically useless unless it was only partially extended. I replaced it with a REDGED carbon which is astoundingly stable.

    I have a 3LT Brian (!) travel tripod. It's well thought out and nicely made. Came with a bag and strap and a decent ball head. One leg unscrews to make a monopod.

    3 Legged Thing tripods - any users here?

    I haven't yet had a chance to use a 3 Legged Thing tripod - what's the informed knowledge on these?

    Their most recent press release is here:

    A British company with a bit of design flair or are they simply reselling Chinese stuff?
