I noticed Outdoor Photo Gear was running a special $13 off for 3 Legged Thing tripods.
Anyone have any recommendations on these things? There are so many in the line, I'm not really sure what to base my purchase on.

Any link to see what is discussed here? And $13 is off of what original price? Did you check amazon or likewise to see who much their prices is when compared with after sale?
$13 per every $99 would be more of a motivator to me. If I was going to be spending $459 - saving $13 would be the last thing on my mind. I'd spend an extra $50 to buy something similar that I was more familiar with. When you spend that kind of money you want to do it only once.

I actually just order a 3 legged thing Jack. It is $140 less than the carbon fiber version, Eric, and is exactly the same except it weighs less than .5 lbs more. BTW, on outdoor photo, the coupon code "MBP10" will get you 10% off anything in their store. I got my Jack for $306 shipped!

Bu the way if you do go for it definitely go for the 3 legged thing. I heard they work much better than the 2 legged thing
A week or so ago I saw a post on the local craigslist selling a "bipod". Of course I had to look. It had three legs, so it must be a very rare species of bipod, indeed.

I purchased my BRIAN X1.1 from Adorama a few months back for what was then two upcoming projects. Very happy with the legs.

Just got my Brian and also very very happy. I now take a tripod instead of leaving it in the car and cursing! It's ever so light, very compact and more stable than my aluminium manfrotto 055 in the right configuration. Being over six foot tall, it's a blessing. Also, with an extra spigot, I get a full height (yes! Even for me!) monopod in the bargain.

I got a Brian for taking with me when I travel or hike instead of my heavy 055xb. It's awesome, super light, very small when folded and quite stable. I changed the AH1 ballhead to a Sunwayfoto for several reasons and its a GREAT travel rig.

This is my 3LT "Tony", which came with an AH2 ballhead. The AH2 is supposed to be an improvment over the AH1, including an arca style plate that is compatible with Blackrapid's FastenR T1 connector. This tripod is very light, folds down to 22 inches, and is very stable. It comes with a nice case, too. I love this (three legged) thing.
