Costco.com has a Dolica Proline 60" Travel Tripod on their site for $199 including shipping. 60" with a claimed weight of 3lbs, supporting up to 20lbs.

Seems like a very good deal given the specs. Very similar to the MeFoto RoadTrip by Benro and the Sirui, both which sell for considerably more.

The ballhead appears to be Arca-Swiss compatible, so my guess is that this might be a rebadge of one of the above tripods.

The non-CF version is $199 at Amazon:

Since it's Costco, this seems like a no-brainer, as there's no risk, and the Costco warranty. Same price for the CF at Costco as the Aluminum version everywhere else.

I just ordered one, if I remember, I'll post my thoughts once it arrives.

Has anyone used dolica? I have a beat manfrotto that sucks to carry on hikes. Looking for something a little lighter and this seems like it may be the ticket.

Does it do monopod as well? The photos show a monopod setup.

Seems so. This is from the Amazon item details: "The 2nd advanced feature is the ability for one tripod legs to detach into a 60 inch monopod by attaching the center column. This allows the tripod to become a 2-in-1 solution that makes it versatile when a monopod is needed."

Looks interesting, if I saw this a couple months ago I would have jumped on it. I'm happy with my Fiesol though, it served me well on my trip to Thailand!
