    Re: Any experience with the Linhof Twinshank Pro tripods (new design?)

    I have a more mature version of this - bought new in 1970. No air damping on the center column. I've put damned near everything on it over the years.It's fine with my 8 x 10 Kardan Bi but I mainly use it with my 5 x 7 Kardan Bi that I bought at the same time I got the tripod. The center column is stable enough for most normal usage - not sure I'd use it at full extension, but getting the cameras to comfortable working height (I'm 6' 2") has never been a problem stability -wise.

    003317 is the regular model with the standard column.
    003333 has the pneumatic column.

    The column on the regular model has a reversible column. The P version does not.
    The column on the regular version could be replaced with the optional Small Geared Centerpost. This could not be used on the P model.

    Thanks Bob. I've used the tripod with the column reversed.
