Don't forget to come here and tell us your experiences and opinion. I can't seem to get enough of that.
I have a Benro Travel Angel and my gf has a Manfrotto (055MF4). The Mandrotto is quite nice, but I am expecting the RRS to be on a whole another level.

I think for pure brute stiffness RRS tripod is between Gitzo 5 and 3. Even velbon 730/830 is stiffer than RRS and Gitzo. Note that I just join birding association so I get to handle many tripod/artilleries combo in the group, just sharing opinions and not to stir up brand associations (I owen rrs 34l)
I do have a question: when I set up my 34l on indoor wooden floor (shiny new one), the legs will kept creeping outward; the more I load the severe the creep. Once I remove all weight and pick it up, the legs will spring back - which is kinna annoying. Is this normal?
Interesting! I do plan to shoot backyard birds from the hardwood floors of my living room. Is there anyway you can try a Gitzo in a similar test? I could always place the legs on a yoga mat or two since I can't do yoga & photography at the same time

My new RRS tripod bag came in yesterday. High quality product worthy of the tripods. Fit is tight and the padding seems very good.
Which model bag is that? I read the 82's would not be released until March. What's inside? Thanks.
