  Just tell her that you saved $94.99+ compared to buying a new one.  :wink:

  And you can always fall back on " Honey, I think I know a guy in Fort Worth  that'll give me $44.44 for it." :)

a bit heavier than I thought, but that's a good thing for stability.  it weighs about the same as my walking stick.  I will let you know when i'm in the field and have used it at it intention.

So, you had a chance to field-test it yet?

sorry, forgot to report back.

I have used it well. 
Pros-fairly stable, light enough for trekking, heavy enough for weapon, easy and quick to use
Cons-works well only on flat surfaces (~.5 inches of adjustment on feet), might be heavy for some.

It weighs approximately the same as my Leki Super Malaku pole and Velbon mini-tripod.  i shoot some macro, so the tripod is better for that.  Unfortunately, I left the mini-tripod on the side of the 118 in January.   :icon_cry:

For only about $40 more (plus shipping) you can get the VersaMount add-on for macro work.
