EastGear is doing a MO (Mass Order) for the very popular Velbon Carmagne (Sherpa Pro) Series of Carbon Fibre Tripods.

http://www.velbon-tripod.com/sherpa_pro01.htm

Velbon Carbon Fibre Tripods are considered by many as one of the Best CF tripods in the market in terms of pricing, features and weight.

1) They have the stability, load capability and similar twist knob locking system of the very expensive Gitzo range
2) They are one of the lightest CF tripods in the market, lighter than the Gitzos & Manfrottos.
3) The lower pricing is also much more attractive than Gitzo and possibly Manfrotto.

BTW, the posted link says the load for the 540 is 6kg, while your thread says 20kg. Can clarify?

I read in some reviews that the Velbon used to come with a "stone bag". Does this MO include that?

BTW, for those who are not sure what the "stone bag" is for. It is actually a small pouch to put stones in and hang at the hook at the bottom of the center column to weigh down the tripod. Afterall the tripod is quite light and you won't want to risk a strong wind blowing the tripod down.

Anyway, the tripod comes with a carrying case as well as the stone bag
