I overly analyzed all the functionality and features of this item since my last purchase was not up to par at all. I am quite pleased with my purchase and cannot wait to get outside to use this tripod. The instructions could be better but you can kind of figure out how everything pieces together and works. It is not lightweight BUT it is very sturdy and durable. Monopod is easy to manage and figure out how to use. Another thing is the clip is not a quick release and needs to be fastened in which depending on your preference might be awesome secureness or annoying during a photo shoot. It also comes with an extremely nice carrying bag that I was not expecting. This was well worth what I paid, again in comparison to the last item I ordered from another seller. I have confidence in purchasing another K&F Concepts item in the future.
