Great for travel, but not very durable.
Pro : More sturdy than 5001b, quick extend and adjust. Con : No 1/4" or any screw, need modification in machine shop. : Curved center column when extended cause of section lock, solve by rotate 90 degree in same direction for every sections.
This stand holds more weight than the others in it's class. It's amazingly small which means it fits in pretty much any bag for travel. The only downside is the lack of a 1/4"-20 mounting screw on the stud. But 20 minutes in the workshop and I was able to drill and tap a hole in the aluminum stud.
