The spider (the structure that keeps the tops of the legs together) is magnesium alloy. Includes a tool kit and a deluxe carrying bag and strap.

          I use this tripod with tele lenses to achieve stability. The great thing about this tripod is that it's weight and size make it very stable. It is very easy to use and it is not as heavy as it looks.

            Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod:

            I was looking for a tall tripod. It was between this and the Manfroto 055. I have the Manfroto 190 and the flip levers are starting to break so I went with the Induro.
            I am very happy with my choice. The twist locks are very easy to use. I was using it in the ocean and it didn't move. I was worried about the weight but I don't have a problem with that. The bag and tool kit was a great bonus. Can't beat a 10 year warranty either.

            This is a very sturdy tripod. I am 6'6" and I can use this tripod with out extending the center column or having to bend over. All adjustments are really smooth and easy to operate. Weighs about 7 lbs which makes it very stable, but I probably won't use it for long backpack trips. I really like this tripod.

            Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod:

            I am using this tripod for all macro work, night shots and where stability is required. It is heavy but very stable. No problem in wind. It can go down quite low and still lower if you use as short vertical section. The only problem is that the screws on the legs are either too loose or too tight. It is great for standing and shooting stars! I can get right under my camera! It is not small and certainly not light - but I new that when I bought it. If you need a sturdy solid tripod and do not worry about weight or size, I can recommend this one.

              A wonderful beast of a tripod

              Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod:

              I have, in the past, frequently bemoaned the lack of height on my tripod. This, coupled with a series of jobs that found me needing more height (and preferring stability for my camera's sake), led me to replace the barely adequate tripod I had been using. I only wish I hadn't wasted so much time complaining about height, because this was just what I needed. Make no mistake, it is a weighty tripod, but I prefer something that gets so tall to have that mass to better secure my camera on its precarious perch. The legs are solid; I think they've hurt more things on impact than the other way around. Initially, I thought I wanted more choice in the angle I set the legs, but realized that may not be the best idea for a tripod this size and height. Everything works well, and feels stable without being difficult to manipulate.
              It isn't well suited for travel, but it's great for anything in the studio. Night and landscape shots work well too, but (obviously) not if you're hiking in the middle of nowhere. I'd even suggest that it's sturdy enough for video.
              The carrying case and accoutrements (wrench and spiked feet) seem fairly durable as well.

              This is very sturdy Tripod, exactly what I was looking for. Little higher on weight front but I can live with it. Atleast I will be able to shape my arm muscles by using this tripod over a period of time.

                I've used this tripod a number of times now, set up is quick, the center column adjusts easily, and is very sturdy even when putting my 500mm lens on it. Weight hasn't been a problem for me, the included tripod case is very nice for carrying the tripod. If the folded length was a little shorter this tripod would be perfect.

                  Super sized legs! Love how big these legs are yet they collapse down to a very manageable size + you get a carrying case + interchangeable spiked & rubber feet + a tool kit!I use these legs with a Manfrotto 055 Magnesium Ball Head and they work beautifully together.Yes, they are heavy, but for the load capacity + the dust/moisture resistance + the independent leg spread, etc, it's totally worth it.I like the added weight because it seems to make it more stable + there's a weight hook on the center column so you can add even more stability if needed.If you are tall or if you use heavy, professional gear and need a pair of solid yet affordable legs, you should definitely consider these.

                          Yeah, it's over 7lbs and heavy but I bought it for studio use and not for lugging it great outdoors for landscape shoots. Weight is the only drawback but everything else is perfect. I prefer the twistlock over lever lock as I always seem to bust a lever soon or later. It comes with adjustment tools, metal spikes and stout carry bag that can accomodate a large ball head. Standard center column is not too long and does not compromise overall stability. It is made in China but it is very well-made with excellent fit and finish. They probably copied some other well known design. You'd be hard pressed to find another brand of tripod in this price range with similar capabilities and features. Highly recommended!

                            This is a tank sold under guises of a tripod. I had a chance to use it in various conditions in the last weeks including shooting a concert with tripod extended to the max so I had to stand on a stool to be able to operate the camera and I'm over 6 feet tall. fully extended tripod was just as solid and unshakable as ever. I tried to shake the camera and a few drunken participants tried unwittingly as well but to no avail.

                                My 3rd Induro. I use the 213 with m4/3 system & 314 monopod with Canon 5D2. I got the AT413 to use on location as an alternative to my trusty Gitzo Studex ... best tripod ever but weighs a ton . The usual good Induro packaging & included kit . Time will tell how the black finish endures. Light & easy to manage . I coupled it with a BBH300 head & the combo is very solid even with 300F2.8. V good value .

                                If you like to just camp in one spot for a period of time to take video or photographs, then this is the best product for you. It can be a burden to lug around, but offers complete stability and a heavy weight capacity to boot. Wildlife and sports photography is ideal, but it can probably do the trick for landscape as well.

                                This is an excellent tripod for the money. It's built like a tank and can support all of your gear no matter how big your lens is. The only drawback is how heavy it is, but you should already know that before purchase. Unless you plan to be going on a long trek or hike with it, it's perfect.

                                I own this tripod for over a year and love it. So I bought one for my sister for Christmas since she made so many hints she wanted one like I had.
                                It gives you the height you need to get over others in the crowd. (I use a 12"folding stool when I use it at full height, or I'm able to stand on anything in the area). It is sturdy and not that heavy.
                                I did get some Lens Coat leg pads as to I have a Canon 500 I lug around and I need some padding for my shoulders.
                                I used this in Alaska last Aug and got it in the saltwater. When I got home you can take the legs apart and give them a good cleaning. I used "liquid wrench dry lubricant" for this.
                                Remember, don't keep on buying tripods and then say I wish I had a better tripod.. this is the one you need.
