    actually not true, unless you are talking solely on the weight of CF. the plying of the layers are quite different.

    but then as you said, nowadays manufacturers are getting more and more dodgy - the whole truth about specifications and origin of manufacture and control are not always that transparent.

    Specs as below : =)

    Gitzo 328 studex tripod Gear column
    Max height: 1.69m
    Min height: 0.36m
    Folded height: 0.6m
    Weight: 3.12kg
    Max load: 9.0kg
    Price : $200 ( used )

    Giotto MH 1300-652C Ballhead
    Height : 120mm
    Diameter :60mm
    Weight : 698g
    Max load : 20kg

    It's rather heavy I reckon but it feels very sturdy using it. I have yet to bring it out yet. I hope I will survive.

    Good luck to you. Even with a good padded shoulder strap, I bet your shoulder will sore after carry for 2hrs or so because of camera gear included.
