you sure ppcp is cf? :think: benro has CF and Alu versions.. I'm quite sure PPCP only has alu version. On the whole it's a good deal, my only gripe with it is that the locks are plastics. I have broken plastic locks before on a trip rendering me with an unusable tripod and have sworn off them.
PPCP's tripods are made of ALU. We cut down on the weight by the having a different materiel for the joint which connects the legs. This part is where most companies have them as solid steel, ours is an ALU Alloy material. PPCP tripods are OOS at the moment (out of stock) - trying to add upgrades to them before next shipment comes in Feb/March.
