I've used a light weight Monfrotto for a long time but am finding as I get better equipment that this is no longer as stable as needed. Several friends have similar older Gitzo models so this was recommended. Great product. Heavier than the Monfrotto and will take getting used to but very sturdy and stable. I had no problem adjusting to the twist clamp legs as some mentioned in other reviews. I find the leg movement a bit tight for my liking, but that may loosen a bit with use, and likely is part of the stability so I'll get used to it.
