I've had this tripod for a long time now and I am thinking of getting a centre column for it. Feisol have a fairly extensive lineup of products for sale. Can someone please guide me to the right one?

Thanks!

Just a word of caution.

Your CT-3442 is a very light tripod and it does not have a large footprint relative to it's height so off center weights can make it unstable very easily so bear this in mind - topples can be expensive!

This is not a criticism of the Tournament tripods (I love them!) it is just physics. To get their enviable combination of height, folded length and light weight there must be compromises somewhere.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

I think this was one of the frequent critisms of the CT-3442. I personally haven't had any issues, but compared to my Gitzos in the past, it does have a smaller footprint.
