Ross, enthusiast

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This baby is impressively sturdy given its light weight (carbon fibre). The leg locks are surprisingly quick and easy to use, and you can set up in seconds. Also, the leg locks are tough, heavily spring-loaded and feel top-notch. The legs slide in and out swiftly, and have a lovely finish to them. Overall, its a great product - one that I would recommend to anyone if its in your price range - good build quality, little extras like a spirit level, bag hook etc.
The adjustable riser can be swapped into a horizontal mode, although I havent used it yet, but it appears well designed.
Bad points:
None so far.
The tripod comes with a little socket wrench for adjust the leg-locks, and the wrench comes snapped onto one of the tripods legs. Dont be fooled - it wont stay there long so I suggest putting it in your camera bag instead (I had a tense afternoon retracing my steps!)

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light and sturdy. Extends to a good height without raising the centre column.
Bad points:
Would be good to be able to remove the centre column and mount the head direct on the tripod, this would save a lot of adjustment when using the tripod at the low level leg setting.

Dave, Forfar

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
This product ticks many of my requirements and like all Manfrotto products is well engineered.
Bad points:
I feel the price for the carbon fibre products is unjustifiably high, as the saving in weight is not very considerable over aluminium or alloys.
