    YTL9253 Silk Road Series 3-Section Aluminum Tripod (Legs Only) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High and lightweight I have only had this tripod for a week or two, but so far I am satisfied. I chose it because I wanted a high and lightweight quality tripod at a reasonable price, and for those parameters, this is currently the best choice. It seems quite stable, I don't have very heavy equipment or telephoto lenses, though. If the weight of the tripod is not an issue for you, my guess is you can probably find a more stable tripod at this price. The tripod feels well-built and the Y-shaped middle column is really a nice feature (and it reverses). The tightness of the clamps on the legs can be adjusted. There is a soft (felt?) cover on the top third of the legs, which, together with the Y-shaped middle column, gives a good grip on the closed tripod. A clamp fixes the legs in 3 possible angles (separately for each leg), the third position is almost horizontal. On thing I don't like about the handling is that in order to release the clamp, you have to close the legs a litte, and it's easy to pinch your hand and between the leg and the middle column in the process. (But it is not a big issue so far.)
