      The tripod was very functional and worked great in my garage. My first trip to the field, however, one of the twist locks broke.

        Comments about Oben CT-2331 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

        Brought this as a backpacking/travel tripod and can't be more pleased with it. I mounted a Vanguard BBH-100 head on it and it is light weight, compact, yet strong enough to support my Nikon D800 with a varity of lenses. The tripod does have limitations, but is perfect for what I need it for. It comes with a carrying case that has both handles and a sling that protects it and works great for carrying it on our back or onto an airplane.

          Comments about Oben CT-2331 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

          I purchased this tripod after 35 years of use from another. The carbon fiber construction makes it sturdy but light, perfect for taking along on my photo shoots! The ball head is so easy to use as compared to my old pan/tilt head and setup is very fast. The price was right and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

          Happy Owner

          Comments about Oben CT-2331 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

          The Oben CT 2331 is almost exactly what I needed. At 1.65 lbs it is light enough to backpack with and hold my Meopt S2 spotter. It's the only full height carbon fiber tripod I could find under two pounds now that slik and manfrotto have discontinued theirs. Fit and finish is great and if it weren't for the folded length and need for a tool to take the head off it would get five stars from me. I would recommend it and have to my friends.

            Comments about Oben CT-2331 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

            Ive been using this tripod for everything you'd expect. Low light, slow shutter speeds, and just all around stabilization. Super light, and portable. the carrying case is perfect. it fits my tripod legs (with the head attached) and my monopod (with the head attached) all at the same time. plus i rigged it up to strap right on my backpack. The shoulder strap also works really well as long as you have a side bag, but with my full backpack its fairly useless (just the shoulder strap that is). Great solid design.

            Comments about Oben CT-2331 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

            I was looking for a light weight but sturdy tripod that was rugged enough to take hiking. The Oben 2331 fit the bill. It weighs only 1.65 lbs but is sturdy enough to handle my large DSLR camera and professional level lenses. Highly recommend use of the counter weight hook on the bottom of the tripod's center column when using heavier lenses or in windy conditions. The only complaint I have is that an allen wrench tool is needed to convert the center column to take low to the ground shots. Would've received 5 stars if it was easier to convert for low level shots
