    Default Help with tripod needed

    I am interested in the Silk U6600 or U8000 tripod. From the website, it is stated that the max operating height is 143cm for the U6600. But is is also stated that the max center column ext is 31cm. I am very confused as to the actual real operating height of this tripod. Is it 143cm or 143+31=174cm? Can any Silk U6600 or 8000 users please enlighten me? Thanks

    Me about 1.74m. Went down last Sunady but was told don't have stock. Was recommended another tripod (brand: Tanner) instead. Did not like it as the quick release was quite cumbersome and I think Silk is more branded. That's my own opinion.

    yeah the operating height doesn't include the center column height. i got a Slik 300DX and the specs states a 155cm operating height, but that's only the legs. when i jack up the center column, it's almost 170+++ cm...
