          Comments about Slik Legs (3) for Professional II Tripod:

          This tripod is a real "sleeper" in the tripod industry. Everything about it shouts quality, and it competes well with European brands costing more. I keep the optional short column installed so I can go low without fooling around in the field. The tripod comes to eye level without raising the column, and I'm six feet tall, All movements are smooth and lock securely. VERY NICE!

              I USE THIS POD INDOORS & OUT , ITS PERFECT. VERY LIGHT FOR A TRIPOD WITH A CENTER GEARED COLUMN. ITS PERFECT FOR TODAYS DSLRS.ITS STRONG & STEADY . MY OTHER BOGEN TRIPOD WITH A GEARED COLUMN IS TOO HEAVY TO BE MOBILE. IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A GOOD TIPOD WITH A GEARED COLUMN , TO TAKE OUT IN THE FIELD OR FOR INDOOR SHOOTING . THIS IS THE BEST IHAVE SEEN & OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS IHAVE USED MANEY TRIPODS.
