    Vanguard VS-86 reviews

    VS-86 2-Section Table-Top Tripod with Ball Head is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality. Screw bolt snapped off inside my 5dmk2 body the first time I tried to test this product. No excessive force was used! The only reason this gets a star at all is because it won't let you submit a no star review.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flawed Seems rugged enough, but the ball head snapped off after half a dozen uses. This is a pretty major flaw.
