Support up to 44.1 lb worth of gear with the TMA48CXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Benro. Made from 9-layer carbon fiber, the 4-section legs are secured via twist locks and extend to a maximum height of 82.9". The center column can be replaced with the included short column to allow the tripod to reach a minimum height of 15.9". The rubber feet can be swapped out for metal spikes so that the tripod can be used on hard surfaces, such as ice, or soft surfaces, like carpeting or a lawn. A ballast hook on the center column allows for the addition of stabilizing weight, and the included carrying case protects the tripod during transport. A 3/8"-16 threaded stud on the mounting platform lets you attach a head of your choice.

    TMA48CXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent RRS or Gitzo Alternative My search for a new tripod began when I needed to gain height over my existing tripod. Tripods in general are also meant to last forever, if you take care of them. So, a bit skeptical of the price point at first, since we're made to believe a good tripod costs $1000+, I figured it wouldn't hurt as much to spend < $500 now and give this guy a shot. Anyway, my ol'Trusty-Manfrotto only extends to under 6ft, and I prefer to not extend the center column too high, for reasons of stability for long exposure architectural or landscape photography. This Benro reaches much higher than most tripods on the market, and it's incredibility versatile. One of the legs is removable for use as a monopod. The legs angle out pretty wide for lower angles, and acrobatic balancing on uneven surfaces. Being carbon fiber, I worry about the weight not holding the tripod sturdy in high winds, but, there are hooks to hang a bag in place, and I've picked up a stone bag that secures to the legs to add more support. Also, with a leveling base and bullhead mounted on top, this beast reaches well over 87 high. Making for a great advantage over renting lifts, dragging around tall ladders, or standing on top of cars to get a higher field of view - I do bring a short step ladder along so I can make adjustments to the camera, but no need for anything over 4ft to get me up there. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for height, stability, carbon fiber, versatility, good craftsmanship, and for anyone who doesn't want to spend $1000+ on a set of sticks. Even if this lasts 10 years and I have to replace it for whatever reason, it'll have been worth it to hold onto the other $400+ now and get to work without feeling like I was taken for a ride by RRS or Gitzo.
