Frank, thank you for the replies.
Trying to buy a tripod through the mail is a real pain in the a**, all I have for a photo store is Walmart.
Signing off to go watch our version of football :D

It's just as bad here in the UK, with the added pain of loads of gear (e.g., RRS) being totally unavailable.

And I'll be trying to stay awake for the football - go 49ers.

Quick question
Can CT214 with Acratech GV2 attached fit in the carrying bag?

-The hardware that connects the center column head base and weight holder is not as nice or refined as the Gitzo.

Cool review; I'd not seen it earlier. I came here after seeing the link in the Travel & Lightweight tripod thread.

Yeah, the metal parts that make up the leg locks and centerpiece are kind of a pebble-finished aluminum which is not as pretty as the Gitzo or RRS items; otherwise I like everything else about my CT214. The ring that locks and unlocks the center column isn't exactly buttery smooth. I may be nitpicking but I only bought my Induro after initially ordering and then cancelling a similar model from RRS after I got some runaround from them in the ordering process. I was prepared to buy a tripod that cost twice as much! Anyway, I moved up from some 20+year old Bogens what had a tendency to crack their cast-potmetal leg clamps, so durability is going to be key. I'd considered a buying second, larger (3-section leg instead of 4) model but if this one proves successful I may stick with the CT214 as my main tripod instead.

I have the AT313 and no regrets, in fact really didn't want the CF model.
