    Unhappy Slik Sprint Pro Tripod

    I got mine SLIK Tripod today from Mscolor. Personally, I think they are quite well made and therefore worth the money. Besides I am not pro ..just taking pix with a coolpix 4500.

    Wah Say....

    This tripod was bought from MScolor. If you want to buy it at 75 nett then you have to submit your equotation via their website. Else it will be 80 bucks. I saw like 4 more left only.

    Honest feedback, this tripod looks sturdy and versatile.

    At 75nett it will probably be the best price you can get.

    This is a good tripod, main strengths:
    - light, well designed
    - fairly sturdy for setups below 1-1.5kg (have not tried beyond that)
    - centre column breaks down for low level work, tripod goes down real low, as low as 15 cm.
    - quite affordably priced
    - spikes for good grip, good for field work
    - independent, 3 position legs

    Some cons:
    - do not extend beyond the last leg, as that stresses the tripod (unless setup is really light).
    - cheapo ballhead (for that price though, no complaints)
    - no quick release (again, at that price, no serious complaints am currently using a UN Jumbo Quick Shoe, a joy to use, alternatively, can try the Manfrotto 352 RC)

    Actually got mine about 3 months ago, also at MS color for 85 nett, guess price have dropped, so for anyone using a digicam, this is an excellent tripod by far.

    asked px as a walk-in customer. no idea abt equote px for cathay.

    qouted S$95 for the PRO GM. however, its on promo now. Free Crumpler sporty guy 2.0 with purchase.

    found that its not suitable for my setup... thot that it would be more sturdy. however, i liked it a lot. maybe i will get it from MScolor for my Fuji F401!

    Yeh, They still have the "Promotion Poster @ $95" pasted on the wall. The bundle cost $15 more than Ms Color. I don't need the digital camera bag.

    Unlike the 190, the Silk feels extremely light, I bet I would not extent it for more than 2 sections. The bulid is good. It will be a well worth going down to AMK although I stay in the East.
