The Slik PRO 724 CFL Tripod is a camera support made from 8X multi-layered carbon fiber. It can hold 11 lb of gear, extends from 7.9" to 62", and folds down to 19.5" for transport. The tripod's 4 leg sections are secured via flip lock and feature an anti-rotational system, preventing the sections from twisting inside of each other, and making it easier to extend or collapse the legs. The rapid center column is constructed from two parts, so that when one is removed a short center column is available for getting your camera as low as possible. Each leg has an independent lock that sets it to one of three angles varying the height and stance of the tripod, and making it easier to set up the tripod on uneven ground. Two of the legs have foam grips, making carrying the tripod more comfortable, especially in cold or hot weather, An included carrying bag protects your tripod during transport. S.R.L.: The Speed Release leg Locks are spring-loaded flip locks that do not snap back, reducing the chance of pinching fingers. 8X Multi-Layered Carbon Fiber: Made from 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace. A.R.S.: The Anti-Rotational System is designed to prevent the leg tubes from rotating inside each other, making it easier to lock and release. Multi-Angle Leg Locks: Each leg has an independent lock that sets in one of three angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod, making it simple to level the tripod on uneven ground. Built-in Short Column: The center column unscrews into two pieces to create a much shorter column for use in low angle photography, or to reduce weight.

It's a $270 dollar travel tripod. Well built, sturdy and meets my needs. However, I think if you shop around and choose another manufacturer, you could probably save $50 or so.
solid and easy to use
This tripod is really light weight. It is easy to use and folds up quickly. But, within the first weeks of use I lost 2 of the 3 rubber feet from the bottom of each leg. I've looked into replacing them, but they seem difficult to find. Without the feet the tripod will scratch any serface it touches. The tripod seems to scrape up pretty easily too.
