The Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 75.6" and weighs in at 4.6 lb while supporting up to 22 lb. But that's just the basics. It has a center column with a unique cantilevered design that allows it to tilt 180 degrees in its yoke and rotate 360 degrees. It also has a ballast hook at the bottom to add stabilizing weights. Thanks to the combination of the column and the 9314's three-position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 11" from the ground. The three leg sections offer a padded first section and Quick Lever Locks for easy operation and optional spiked feet. The lowest leg has eight calibration marks at 2.0" intervals to make precise leveling easy.

Note: This listing is for tripod legs only. Your choice of tripod head is available for separate purchase. However, the included short column with patented AutoSafety Lock can be used for limited two-way control even when not using a head.

            Comments about Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod:

            Although I havent used it much yet, it was by far the best option for the max height that I was looking for. The build quality looks good. The clasps are pretty tight to work with quickly but this is pretty minor. Loving the scale on the legs to help level things quickly. The only thing thats missing is the metal spikes that are useful at times, but they are sold seperatly if you need them I guess.

            Comments about Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod:

            From the moment that I removed it from the box I was impressed with it's quality. I have been using a tripod from another mfg. and it wasn't stable, the center column did rise up and allow 180 degree use for macro (etc) but even without the head, it was flimsy. The Giotto's arm when extended for macro use is rock solid!!! This was exactly what I wanted in a tripod. Stability!!! I also want to mention that when the legs are extended to the max, it remains very stable. I am over 6' tall and it is taller than I am even without a head or extending the center column. Yes, I am impressed! Although it is a little heavier than the carbon fiber model, I don't consider it a burden to carry around.

                  Comments about Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod:

                  Short center column great for light and fast set-up without a ball-head: Good! Second longer column does all the gymnastics advertised very well: Good! But only one column top-plate comes with unit so you must buy a second from Giottos Parts and two of the head screws are not captive: Bad! Overall use-experience is outstanding so four stars composite rating.
