CF and wood? I assume wood is a bit heavier? I like the specs I see on the Feisol products. The Ries look nice and fold small....but they're twice the weight snd price. What's the Anti-Rotation business all about? Any recommendations on Heads? geared v ball? Always used a simple ball for my 35mm work....I have an old Bogen tripod that came with the used equip I purchased and I think it's very difficult to work with due to the extreme weight. Although, it would make a great studio tripod.
