I've had this tripod for three or four years. I'm about to replace it. Here's why. While it is big, beefy, and strong, as with many CF tripods, the leg sections have a twist grip for locking the legs in position. I think the QC at Feisol is less than optimal, as not all the twist grips tighten with the same force. One, in fact, takes a really hard twist to lock it securely, and then it is difficult to loosen. It's also a big pain when making adjustments in the field, and is always a two-hand and sometimes two-person job.
My wife often requires my assistance when taking it down. I'm going to order a Manfrotto 055CXPRO4, with flip lever leg locks, from Amazon today. The load capacity of the Manfrotto is only 17.6 lbs vs 26 for this one, but our heaviest rig with 500mm F4, 1.4x extender, and Wimberly head comes to 15.7 lbs--not as much cushion as I might like, but we'll get a lot more pictures in the time we'd otherwise spend fiddling with the tripod.
