      Sachtler almost always gives you top quality products and parts, in which you can tell that plenty of time and thought of human centered design has been put into. This on-ground spreader for 75mm tripod legs are the standard floor spreaders for Sachtler 75mm tripod legs, and the quality of the build is there for all to see. Sturdy build, good quality material used, all this while still maintaining an aesthetic appeal.

      However, i've heard that in the long run, there is just one flaw with this spreader. That is when the joints that join all 3 sections of the spreader get seasoned, the center of the spreader will actually dip when lifted, which might be a hindrance when moving about. Another thing that makes me give it only 4 stars is its price (Good things don't come cheap) being a tad on the high side.

      But if you pay peanuts you get monkeys, so i guess you have to pay good money for German engineering.

      (P.S when purchasing a spreader for your tripod. one should take note of the type of locking system of the legs to the spreader, and the minimum stretch of the rubber catch in this case. Some 'universal' spreaders and tripods are not compatible, thus always do make sure of this key point)

      Cheap constructed plastice. Breaks easy.

      If collapsed too quickly without everything being even, this light weight plastic will just snap.

          An expensive way to figure out I need to remove the spreader before folding the Tri Pod. Great product exact ally like the original.

            Comments about Sachtler Spreader SP 75 On-Ground Tripod Spreader:

            I've been using my Sachtler legs with the mid-level spreader, which doesn't expand nearly as far as this ground spreader. That means you can't get the tripod as low to the ground as you'd like. With this ground spreader, I can get a lot closer to the ground, which gives me greater flexibility in how I use this tripod.

            Also unlike the mid-level spreader, this spreader doesn't require tools to remove from the legs. That means greaters speed and flexibility in the field. I wasn't a big fan of the sachtler legs with the mid-level spreader, but adding the ground spreader made them my new go-to set when I'm working with my XF305 or a DSLR rig.

              Sachtler does it again with a camera support item that makes all the difference when used with my tripod. All over the country, I travel with light weight tripod. This spreader is just what I needed for additional stability when shooting is all conditions interior or exterior. It folds and travels well in my soft case and hard case. Easy to use, easy to adjust and all with the percision and high standards that comes with the SACHTLER name.

                Just recently purchased SP 75 On-Ground Tripod Spreader, very good product, fast shipping, excellent conditions! It is FULL of features and is great at more than just a spreader. This Spreader holds it easily and guiding is almost perfect for tripod shooting all angles without problem. Highly Recommended the products I buy from B&H photo video and willing plan to purchase more from B&H.

                    This is the third on ground spreader I have bought for my Sachler DV tripod. It's great for running and gunning and getting quick shots but it also takes a beating. At [$], it is rather pricey to be replacing it every other year but on the whole, it works great.
