    Comments about Davis & Sanford CarbonLiteX10 Carbon Fiber Tripod with FGX10 Head:

    This is an update to my review of this kit. Specifically the FGX10 Head. well, only after adjusting the tilt portion of the head twice on a shoot, the nob broke off in my hand. This rendered the tilt portion loose for the rest of the day. Inspection revealed this part to be extremely under-engineered, and ill-designed. Upon calling for a Return Authorization, turns out this head is only worth 15 bucks. Based on this, I can only recommend you purchase the legs, and look for a different head. I bought a new head, and can recommend it. The Bogen 804rc2.. for use with a camera under 9 lbs.

    Expertise: Professional

    Problems Encountered: Ill designed and engineered parts will break off.
