      Comments about Vanguard Alta+ 255CT 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I owned an old aluminum tripod and it was not a back friendly. I have searched for Carbon fiber tripod and found Vangurd. The first thing that caught my attention was the price. Too good to be true for a carbon fiber with an innovative center pole system for this bucks. I got one without hesitation. They are light and strong. I love it.

      Comments about Vanguard Alta+ 255CT 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I was looking for to go B and H NY superstore for long time and this summer I was able to. I searched couple of months before to make a decision to buy a light weight, small, easy to use, well built and not an expensive carbon fiber tripod. Vanguard was one of the brand on top of my list. After spending about two hours at the store finally I end up to make decision between two Vanguard tripods. This one (255ct) and one smaller model (Alta+ 225CT) While I was checking both I noticed that 255ct was way cheaper than the smaller model (225ct) I asked the sales representative why the lover model is more expensive? He checked and said 255ct was mis-priced. He called the manager and they apologized about the inconvenience and gave me the 255ct even cheaper than 225ct. I have used the tripod couple times at NY and after returning to home. So far I have no complaint. I also searched on line and did not see that this product was cheaper than B&H at any web site even with the regular price. Alta + 255CT is easy to use, stable, light weight and small. I use Slik SBH-120 head and both are good match. I am very happy that I stop by at B&H NY store during my NY visit and very happy with the product that I purchased. Although store was very busy, sale representatives are don't hesitate to answer any of your question no matter what. Good experience.

        Very satisfied, no drawbacks!
        Of course, a 5-section tripod is a bit long to unfold but it is so easy to carry.
