What's it say in 20 words or less?

I went to the link and found this - I guess this sums it up.

"After using (and buying) the TVC-24L and TVC-34L, there remains no doubt in my mind that the RRS tripods are by far the best carbon fiber tripods available on the market today. I have abandoned my Gitzo tripods of similar size, and I’ll be using the RRS tripods from now on."

I've got the 34L and although I lack the expertise to know if these are the best or not, they're the best I've used.

Yeah, he compares the RRS tripods to different Gitzo models and runs them through a series of rigorous tests including some resonance testing. In the end, the RRS tripods come out ahead.

I did not expect something else from RRS. RRS rocks. :cool:

Interesting comments on the bottom. I hadn't heard of problems (but I didn't look for any either to be honest). Someone local was selling a RRS tripod for about 2 weeks earlier this summer. I wasn't sure why it was available for so long. He/she wanted $600ish for it, though I can't remember which model it was. Maybe it had that fault and they just wanted to get rid of it.

You could have bought it and turned a quick $300+ on eBay. But the decent thing to do would be to tell me about the deal so i could have. :)

I've had my TVC-23 since January and I haven't had any problems with the pull tabs.

Can someone who has the TVC-24 measure its folded length and state whether it's the listed 18.7"?

there was a fellow selling one a week or two ago in the marketplace here. Here a link to his ad -

PM him and ask him to measure it for you.

That's a very good deal, if I didn't have some I'd be all over that one.

I know, awesome legs! They are just a hair too tall for me. Other than that, I'd say this is as good as it gets.
