    Field Optics Research FT6229C Reviews

    ProMax FT-6229C Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed bag (mostly very good) For the most part, an enjoyable tripod to carry and use. The tactile feedback of the twist locks is very nice, but also a reason I am marking this down. The feedback is slightly out, so the point where you feel the click is not the same point that the leg is unlocked/locked. On one of the legs this is a good half-turn out of place. So I can twist two legs, feel the feedback, and know the leg is ready to extend. On the third I can twist until that same point, feel the feedback, and then have to half turn again to actually unlock the leg. Apart from that though, it is a very likable tripod at a very good price for what it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality I was looking for a light weight tripod to fill in for my Manfrotto 3021. This should work for what I need and the price is right.
