I went with Gitzo because I wanted a proven product and a company to stand behind it.

No question, Gitzo. You really honestly, can't even compare the two. They're really not in the same class.

So how do you figure they're not in the same class ?

Because it's a knock off?

Do you think that Rolex watches you get on a street corner for $75 are as good as the real thing?

If you don't like the answers you're getting then you shouldn't have asked the question. Yes, it's possible that the Chinese tripod may be as good as a Gitzo. It's just very, very unlikely.

my thoughts exactly. i know i was the first response, but i didn't foresee any responses being well. nice to the ebay tripod. furthermore, ebay links do break down but honestly, having it for the first couple of people who would've responded would've been a nice touch. just my $0.02, you don't have to agreee. will wait to see how this ebay tripod stacks up though. and what gitzo did you order to compare it to?
