    The good: Built quality is very nice for the price of the unit, the handle has a slight drag to it for a smoother turning(useful for video). The rubber and pin base workd great, monopod have a great height adjustment(up to about 6ft)

    The bad: The whole "head" assemble is screw onto the top of the monopod unit, with the panning screw lock down you can accidentally loosen the whole "head" assembly by turning it and dropping the camera. Easy fix is to use a locktite/threadlocker glue on the bolt. Monopod are kind of flexy but i am not complaint for the price i paid

    This tripod is worth exactly how much you pay for it. The only real issue i have with it is that the head that swivels horizontally is not very fluid. It either gets tighter or very loose as you turn it. This is an excellent tripod on a budget though. Its solid and pretty sturdy. I love how the tripod head also has a detachable platform as well.

    A good light weight tripod for travel. The fluid type head is useless for video work.
    The extra quick release plate supplied did not fit or lock down correctly.

      This tripod is good for its price. You shouldn't expect this tripod to work well like a manfrotto tripod or other high quality tripods. This tripod was worth it and don't expect too much out of it.

              The pan-handle would not thread into the panhead after being gently used for 2-3 days. I completely lost the ability to tilt my camera up/down, making the tripod totally useless. I expected a cheaply made tripod, but the amount of use I got out of it was definitely not worth the cost. I will not recommend this tripod.

                Comments about Sunpak 6601TM Tripod/Monopod with 3-Way Head (Quick Release):

                I use the tripod as a lightstand for my speedlights. I have two others I use in the same manner. For the money they are a great value. I can get them into tight spaces by adjusting the legs, quickly aim the speedlight just where I want it and raise or lower it quickly. Easy to move from room to room. It took me 5 years to wear out my first one, so that cost me less than $10 a year. I don't think it would be a very good tripod for a camera, it's just too lighweight.

                  The multiple use monopod detachment would put it above average if it were longer. There also isn't much "fluid effect" in the head. But for the $, it isn't a bad purchase.

                    Overall, this isn't a bad tripod. I like all of the features. The pan could be a little more fluid, and the monopod conversion could be a little easier. All that being said, I like it and it works for me. A plus for the retractable spiked feet.

                                Great mono/tripod. Good starter equipment. Fits in my backpack.

                                Great for long exposure night shots.

                                Monopod is great for walking around.

                                  A lot of cool little features, makes this tripod a great buy. The mono-pod, 2 quick release pads, bubble level, etc, etc.
