Top critical review
Worst, cheapest tripod for this price range I've ever seen.
Reviewed in the United States on July 17, 2020
I've had a few lower or mid-range priced ($100-140 range) tripods over the years. My last was a Sunpak, not the greatest model but it had a ball head with pistol grip and lasted about 6 years.
This thing. The cheapest, lightest aluminum legs, there's flashing bits coming off the main tube in the center, it scrapes when you pull the main tube out (more shavings dropping out of it as you go), the leg adjust rings are ultra-cheap flimsy plastic and one of the legs (as many others have reported) would not stay locked no matter how tight the ring. You can even see imperfections in the anodized aluminum head components.
Too much plastic, the aluminum is paper thin, the anodized parts are sloppily milled, the legs are defective with ultra-flimsy plastic adjusts, ball head doesn't lock and will still move around no matter how tightened-down.
AVOID this one. I'm sure there are lots of better quality tripods around this price on Amazon. The only reason I'm giving one extra star is that you could, I suppose, use it as a bludgeon or (if you duct tape the legs) a simple tripod for a static light or camera since the head has smooth rotation... Or maybe I'm just enjoying my afternoon and feel generous.
