Any warnings against the brand for whatever reason?

I am in the market for a new tripod and intend to get a fairly
serious one -- but I am really concerned about breaking the bank on
this item. As much as I've enjoyed reading up on GITZO, I just don't
feel the price point is where it needs to be.

I am looking for a tripod that can reach 5' (I'm 6 ft tall) - at
least 60" (or abouts) - due to 2 back injuries.

The Benro C-358n6 is 61.8" w/o column extended, less than $400 at B&H. Although heavier than the Gitzo 0, 1 and 2 lightweight carbon series, I'm sure it could provide very good stability at a cheaper price if that's your primary goal. I'm eventually looking for a heavier, more stable home tripod to complement my lightweight Gitzo Mountaineer, so noticed the Benros just yesterday.

You might also keep checking the big auction site, could be a good time to find deals on the pricier, 2nd hand tripods.
