"You just bought a new TT did you not?
The tri pod may be the better option if you plan on buying new often that way you can just take it with you."
We won't be buying "new often" but had to make a quick decision to trade our 5ER in on a different model.
I found one Tri Pod in stock locally (Laughlin, Nevada) and was wondering about picking it up. I misplaced the paper I wrote the brand down on but could call them later. I'm thinking it was under $200.
I started out with the Lego type blocks for leveling and now have wood blocks and planks, of course I have CHOCKS!
We will be here until January 2 and then packing up for home, weather permitting back there. I can wait and find the right Tri Pod back there if someone can refer me to a specific brand? Maybe it doesn't matter? Brand wise?
