    Davis & Sanford TR654C-36 reviews

    TR654C-36 Traverse Carbon Fiber Grounder Tripod With Ball Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from my tripod leg locks broke. the leg locks which lock the legs width has broken now on all 3 legs. i can no longer use the middle width anymore. i shoot a lot at the beach and on hikes so i used those quite a bit for uneven surfaces on rocks and slanted locations so I'm pretty bummed on that and honestly expected that to be the most durable part of the trip pod. besides the weak link in there process for building the aluminum portion, its a nice small, lightweight, and its pretty sturdy until you open the bottom(skinny) legs. you'll notice some movement especially if water will be hitting the legs so i just avoided opening it all the way up unless i was using on a solid, flat surface.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, sturdy and well built I've been using pro tripods for almost fifty years, so it was fun shopping for a compact tripod to fit in my duffel. I looked at Manfrotto's BeFree, MePhoto's GlobeTrotter and Gitzo's GT1545T. Most were comparable in specs. This and the Gitzo were only in carbon fiber. The Gitzo was beautiful but cost 5x as much, so it's out. The BeFree looked good, and Manfrotto is generally reliable, but the head seemed not removeable, and had sketchy reviews. Anyway, I got this one, definitely the least expensive, and was slightly worried because of that. But I t's great! Solid hardware, smooth operation, great head, great small touches. No corners cut anywhere. Great on the road as well as at home, and compacts to a neat package in a padded case (Gitzo didn't even have a case at all!).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Lightweight Tripod (Excellent Value) I'm a working professional...and though I've used this tripod only once so far...it appears to work just fine. My typical working rig is a Manfrotto 055 carbon fiber (legs) with a Graf Studioball, but it's a little on the heavy side to travel with. I was thinking of going with a Manfrotto 190Go! set of legs (carbon fiber) with a lighter ball head of some kind, but then I saw this on sale at a price too low to pass up! The cost of this tripod...with a lightweight ball head included...was a fourth of the price of what I had been looking at! Whether it will last is yet to be seen, but at first glance (and use) I'm happy with it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Medium Duty After testing this: You can trust this to hold something like a Nikon D810 with a 200 or so lens, but only if you are really careful. It will tip when in the narrow leg position with a very slight bump. Align the heavy axis with a leg in the same direction; sometimes even slightly moving a leg up or down to change center of gravity. Shoot with a remote or cable (remember those?). The wind will shake it. For mirrorless MFT these are great. Wish the thing didn't have to be folded wrong to fit in bag, but other mfgs. do the same thing. A little lighter than an aluminum equivalent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Tripod with Many Features I am impressed with the features and operation of this tripod. It is well designed, head operates smoothly, legs fold over head for easy portability. Just a couple of minor quibbles with quality control. When I unzipped the carry bag provided with the tripod, the grip broke in half as soon as it was pulled. Not confidence inspiring. In addition, the level was fastened in place at an angle, making it useless. Neither of these things was a deal breaker for me, since zipper pulls were easy to find and I use the level on my camera flash mount anyway. Everything else works very well and the tripod is solid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent travel tripod I recently took a three day cross country trip and brought along my camera, lenses, and this tripod. Shooting both in and outdoors in rural and urban environments was a breeze. The foundation is solid and it had no problem giving me a stable platform for shots ranging from macro to portrait to wide landscapes. The weight is easily manageable for the performance it provides and my only complaint is that, in order to fold it properly for storage and transport, you have to have either two hands free to make sure you can work the release lever on each leg OR have very nimble thumbs. That is such a minor quibble in light of the stellar performance, however, that I can't deduct a star. I highly recommend this tripod for any budget-conscious travel photographer looking for something light and extremely durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet deal for a travel tripod. This is a compact, lightweight and sturdy tripod. Well made and complete with head. I especially like the 1/4 turn leg locks. Only the top tripod makers share this attribute. Feet with rubber and spikes! More makers need to offer little things like this instead of nickel and diming us for everything. It's darned convenient too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased and Disappointed Recently purchased tripod not yet seen extensive use, but initially pleased. Choosing this product because of owning an older D&S tripod from a number of years ago which proudly bears its "Made in USA" sticker obviously made me disappointed to discover the new purchase was made in China, something not included in B&H's advertisement or even on B&S's online information which emphasized an 85-year connection to America. Only the box tab denoted place of manufacturer in rather small print. Recommend B&H include information where products are made in their advertising.
