Has anyone bought anything from this company in Hong Kong? They seem to have some good deals on tripod kits.

You will find a couple good reviews here about their travel angle series.

I have an aluminum Travel Angel A269, with the B-1 Ballhead. Great combo, it can hold anything you see below easily.

i think he was asking about the site benro-tripod.com

that does not look to be benro's portal for purchases, searching for the site points that they have no reviews as far as i can tell.

I see, the site does look a bit fishy now that I see it.

Comparing prices of their CF travel angel kits versus Adorama, the prices aren't good at all:

Benro's US company is located in NY, could give them a call to confirm if this site is fake or not.

I would rather look at the Feisol tripods - they are better quality and last longer. Their new anti-rotation tripods are excellent.

The adorama units you are quoting are the aluminum ones, not the carbon fiber ones this site is advertising for $100 bucks less than amazon or anywhere else.

Thanks for your input guys. I contacted Benro to inquire about these guys. I will advise.

Yes, there are a lot of ebay sellers for their product. I just bought a benro tripod earlier this month. Very happy with the build for the price.
