nope.

serious.

i was going to pull the trigger on the gitzo 2531EX...

but when i read that even gitzo legs drop...

carbon fibre is a no no to me.

one thing, i don't think they UV bond the parts... so you get a result like the ipod, iphone.

what happens for ipod is this, they are UV bonded.

so the materials are melted to "glue" to each other.

the thread was from me comparing benro, feisol and gitzo.

the chinese ones had reports that their legs drop off.

another person commented gitzo's too.

just that gitzo's provide support for their products in some way better than the chinese.

but for the sort of money i throw in to a gitzo, that is not acceptable to me. (just my viewpoint)
