      So far so great

      By Bobo406

      Comments about Oben CT-3561 Carbon Fiber Tripod With BE-117T Ball Head:

      Only used it twice so far but living in Montana along the Rocky Mountain Front I encounter plenty of wind and during my two uses it's been great. Spikes helped for stability and I was able to let it stand by itself in 20-25 mph winds with my camera on it. I like it so far

      Comments about Oben CT-3561 Carbon Fiber Tripod With BE-117T Ball Head:

      Used with a 400mm lens, at a short extension and 180mm macro (remote trigger) the tripod does well. Light enough to carry into the woods via pack. Not beefy enough for a heavy Canon 500mm lens though. Ball head functions well and has solid support/lock. Quality is spot on, aluminum fittings, with carbon thicker walled tubes . Didn't want to spring for the RRS branded tripod. To much money for my wallet, to see it get banged up on rocks or wet and salted at the beach. I pay to play and don't get paid to play. I do recommend the tripod but suggest a heavier option from Oben to support the heavy stuff.

        Comments about Oben CT-3561 Carbon Fiber Tripod With BE-117T Ball Head:

        I purchased this product while on a three month
        vacation in Texas. The first time I used the tripod I was going to return it. Even tho it is rated to hold 17 pounds it looks a bit wimpy in the last leg section. However I thought I would test it a few more times. I'm glad I did. for my height 5'10" I don't even use the last leg extention. I really like the portability also how small and compact it folds down into. For me this has been proven to be a good choice.
