Feisol 3441S Traveler is better tripod and includes excellent case

Or buy the Feisol CT-3441S Traveler CF tripod that sells for $410 and includes a great carry case at no extra cost. It has a load capacity of 44 lbs and this is a real world number as I have this tripod.

RRS makes good stuff but it is seriously overpriced and the profits are not shared by its owner with his employees. I had the TVC-34L and all I got for my $1000 was a cardboard box. With the Feisol CT-3472 I got a 3 in 1 tripod that supported as much weight, was shorter when collapsed and so better for air travel and it came with an excellent carry case. No improvement in function or build quality or durability for the extra $650 cost of the RRS tripod.
