Re: Feisol ct3442

You can buy the head separate from the legs. If I get a smaller tripod, I would likely go for a high-quality small head, one size down from the biggest head the manufacturer makes. ArcaSwiss p0, Markins Q3 or Q10, and RRS 30 and 25 sizes are some examples of top-quality small heads.

I have been very happy with my "systematic" style (no center column) Feisol CT 3472, the big brother (38 mm diameter legs) of the CT 3442, mounted with a ArcaSwiss Z1sp ball head, and compatible with a half gimbal for 400mm lens. This is great for birds, overkill for landscapes. When I get too annoyed with hiking with the thing, I may downsize to a 27 mm diameter leg compact tripod kit.
