      Comments about Oben CT-2481 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      Its light, sturdy and handsome. Its gets nice and tall. Its everything a $ tripod should be. I'm happy with it.The problems:The rubber grips to extend legs aren't adhered to the twists, so the rubber can move around and independent of the lock twist. The O-ring used at the bottom of the center column is too large in diameter and can easily slip off. It also needs to be of thicker gauge to protect the legs more from the center column when the legs are closed. And lastly, there is a lot of play on the center column when it is loose, I guess it needs to be so it can slide up and down, but I think there is too much play.Its overall great, but no Gitzo and maybe thats why it wasn't prices like one.

            It's so much lighter than the aluminum version, and twist locks work great. The CTM-2500 monopod uses the same twist lock mechanisms.
