What they don't tell you is that the guy in the picture is only 1.25m tall. ;-)a

Really Right Stuff also makes one like that, 85 inches tall without a center post. I'm not sure why you would need anything that high.

Because you're tall yourself, shoot up & want to be able to stand when doing it or shoot on uneven ground where one or two legs would need to be extended further.
I'm 6'4" myself (so not amazingly tall) & while using the full extension might be rare I've had situations where a tripod of this height would have helped my comfort if nothing else.

There are many, many occasions when you need that fairly moderate height plus a lot more. I've used the old Gitzo Tele-Pied Giant at full extension for weddings, RTA evidence, commercial and industrial - and that went up to 9ft, not a paltry 7ft(ish). In fact Gitzo used to make a tripod/ladder combo for when you really needed something tall (I think it was about 12ft, open to correction on that). But that was half a century ago when they were made in Paris, they probably don't make it now - too costly transporting all that heavy scaffolding tube to Italy. ;)

Other odd bits over the decades, simply to get the job done - not merely to polish and brag about cos I'm too mean to buy the polish!

Those old Gitzo ones were long before carbon fiber, so a heavy Aluminum systematic! They weighed a ton!

Correct, when I bought my RRS, I was concerned about the height of the tripod being excessive. I'm 5'8".

As mentioned above, it is very versatile for any situation. You don't have to use it all if you don't want too.

But, it is there if you need it.

I understand why a tall person would need some extra height, and I understand about shooting upwards. I am over six feet tall and shoot BIF allot. I have a RRS 34L which extends to 68" add to that the height of your tripod head and camera and I've never had it fully extended, even on uneven ground. 85" just seems a little extreme but I guess Induro sees a market for it.
