Support up to 17.6 lb with the FTA18CV0 Travel Angel Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod and the V0E Ball Head. This compact tripod features reverse-folding legs that enable the tripod to fold down to 23.2", which combined with its 3.4 lb weight makes this a suitable tripod for travel. When the 4-section twist-lock legs are fully extended the FTA18CV0 reaches a height of 60.8". One of the legs can be removed and connected to the center column to create a monopod for added versatility.

The legs are made from 9-layer carbon fiber for minimizing weight without sacrificing strength. To add stability, the rapid center column has a ballast hook on the bottom so that you can hang a stabilizing weight such as a heavy bag or case. Rubber feet and stainless steel spikes let you use the tripod on a variety of surfaces such as grass, ice, or wooden and tile floors. A dust cover and a carrying case with a shoulder strap are included to protect the legs when not in use.

The included V0E ball head has separate pan and ball locks, and an Arca-type compatible clamp with a quick-release plate. A 90° notch lets you quickly change your camera to portrait orientation, and an integrated bull's eye bubble level helps maintain horizontal alignment. The base of the head connects to a tripod or monopod via a 3/8"-16 thread and the included plate provides a 1/4"-20 camera mount.

    FTA18CV0 Travel Angel Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod with V0E Ball Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Travel Tripod I bought this tripod to replace a similar tripod that was stolen just before a trip. I glad I got this one. My other tripod was a very popular brand But I found this one better. The pluses are: very good ball easily supported my 5dMk3, with a 70-300 L, no creep or slippage, very light weight and I really like the safety lock of the clamp. It took a bit of getting used to first, but once I did I really liked this feature. The only minus is that it's a wee bit longer when folded up than my other unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and light I needed a tripod that is well built, sturdy, durable, and light to carry with me on mountain hikes. I found just that with the Travel Angel Carbon tripod. It is easy to set up, sturdy but light, and has withstood every challenge I have given it. The VOE ball head is easy to use and has shown no creep when I mount a Canon 70-200 F4 lens. I have never owned one of the very expensive travel tripods, so I don't know what you get for the extra $. This tripod kit gives me everything I need.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tripod - terrible instructions. Great design on the tripod and the VOE. Deserves a 5/5 but the instructions are a disgrace. I rate them 1/2 of one point (0.05/5). BandH should pressure BENRO to contract an English-speaker to review all the written material in English. I live in Guatemala (53 years) and have used that method with the locals to better their products. It really makes a difference and at a small cost to the manufacturer. Besides the final rating of the product will be affected: upward!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tripod for Photography Great Tripod. Solid Construction. Not overkill for a Fuji X-T1 with battery pack and 16-55 lens. Would suggest if using video equipment, to go with the Benro FTA28CV1 to support the extra weight. 2 Thumbs up!
