I recently bought a tripod for only $20 from RI.
It was brand new, and it came in a box.
And the cost price was $15. (I should have bargained but it was for charity... So.. nvm..)

However, all cheap stuff don't come perfect:
-One of the tripod's rubber stops was lost and the others look rather loose to me. So I thought of buying some replacement rubber stops. But where?

-The tripod didn't come with a bag. So I need to look for a bag. But where?

*sigh*

Like they say, you get what you pay for. Dunno where you can get the parts. Tripod bags are available for the more branded tripods like Manfrotto/Gitzo, but I think they might be too big for what you have. Check them out at Cathay. You might want to check out tripod straps too -- I find them more practical than bags.

Regards

The tripod straps at cathay don't come cheap. I got mine for $30, true they're more practical then bags but the price you have to pay...
