    the FLM tripod leg comes apart for easy cleaning should you get a little dirt/grime/salt water in the lower section. It is extremely well designed.
    The only flaw/issue I have found is that when walking with the legs extended, they can cross so it is a tad awkward on the shoulder. When collapsed legs do not cross due to the rubber feet meeting. X vs V
    The CP34 and CP38 also have large head platforms which is something one should also consider.

    Glad you found something you like. I have a raft of tripods and they all have plusses and minuses. I use one of the "Three legged thing" tripods (I think its the Leo) and it's OK - works well for the Hasselblad and I've had the Technika on it as well - not ideal but when traveling internationally it's nice because it will fit in a carry on bag. I used to be 6'2 and the TTT Leo isn't really tall enough. I have FLM heads on several tripods and they're excellent. And I use the Kessler Crane quick release system on the larger tripods - I can't recommend them highly enough. I have 2 of them mounted on the platform of my monster Majestic - one fore and aft for the LF cameras and one side to side to accomodate the RRS QR plate on the Mamiya 7 and the "cage" on the Canon 5D.
