Exactly.

A friend in another industry calls such products "mystery meat". That's why, although I prefer American gear, when I do by Asian, I go for Benro, Velbon, or Hakuba, brands who sell their own stuff, instead of the mystery meat brands like Mantona, Feisol, or Giottos.

Feisol and Giotto are factorys that produce tripods and heads.
