Re: Feisol CT3442

How are the legs on this tripod? I read a review on that the legs don't lock well and can be difficult to lock. I am planning on getting an acratech ultimate ballhead. I have a Canon 50D and my heaviest lens is a 70-200 F4.0 iS.


The legs are absolutely fine and they lock just fine. It's a very simple screw locking system and I can't see much to go wrong with it. You turn the locks until they're tight enough to hold the legs.

Newer Feisol's with the Rapid leg locks are easier to loosen, as looser leg sections higher up don't rotate when you do so, but tightening has never been a problem for me.
