im thinking of moving off of my gitzo g2220 explorer to a lighter tripod that does much of the same thing. was looking at the Giottos Pro Series 9354 aluminum one as the carbon versins are too expensive.
does anyone have any opinions on the general selection of silk road tripods? im skeptical of the weight on this one in particular as it is listed on most sites as 3.5lbs (making this on par with the carbon versions). whereas amazon says item weight is 4.6
