Comments about Oben AC-2341L 3-Section Aluminum Lateral Tripod Legs:
Great tripod that is very sturdy. The lateral arm is a square tube so it is very solid and can't swivel. I was able to fully extend the center column at 90 degrees with my 3 pound camera and ball mount attached without the tripod tipping over but it wouldn't take much more weight to tip it (just don't extend the arm all the way).
The lateral center support/arm gives you great flexibility to do almost anything. The only drawback is the arm is not 2 pieces like the normal AC-2341 so when the legs are extended out to near ground level, you still have this 16 inch arm sticking up. Of course the arm could be extended out laterally but it would be nice to have both options available for use.
There is a loop on the tripod base for adding extra weight if needed. It would also be nice to have one on the center column/arm so one could add counterweight when the arm is fully extended laterally with a heavy camera on it.
I was really impressed when I opened the carrying bag and seen a small zippered pouch for the shoulder straps. I rarely use a shoulder strap but I like knowing I have one, it's even better knowing it is always with the bag. The entire bag is very well made.
