    To describe my test at the shop, what I did was deploy both models and twisted them both to see how much each model can rotate while planted firmly on the ground. Seeing that there are not much differences, I chose the 4-section. The sections did not retract or creep while exerting downward force. From the Gitzo website, the newly designed G-locks grips tighter when more force is exerted! And they perform as described!
    I see, I opted for the 3 section because I have 1 section less to deal with :P I also have the EX version, great for weird terrain but a pain to set up on level ground.

    True, with one section less, it'll take less time to deploy.
    Give and take. See what the user wants in his tripod. Speed or convenience or a shorter length.

    After going thru and hands on checking out the tripod, I think I have decided on a ball head instead....

    1. 190 X Prob
    2. 488RC2.....

    Think this will not be too heavy and the 190 X can be used for Marco shots too....
