Giottos Silk Road YTL 8284 Tripod
The evolutionary new Silk Road series of YTL tripods, are designed with a 'Y -tube' shaped center column, reducing the size so that it is 30% more compact when folded compared to a similar tripod. The weight of the tripod is also reduced, yet the tripods provide the same camera support that Giotto's users have come to expect. Choose from aluminum or carbon fibre in a range of sizes and weights, knowing that you can produce pin sharp images every time, wherever your travels take you!

I am planning a trip to Hawaii and needed a light weight tripod to travel with. The compressed length makes packing less of a hassle. The light weight makes this the one to use when hiking on the trail. I use the aluminum tripod at home. I did notice that the bottom section flexes a little more than I like but was not a problem. Overall a tripod worth the money.
