The carbon fiber ones are interesting - Gitzo traveler clone 1-series and a 2-series. The 1-series would be great with a Markins Q3-T ballhead. The ballhead that comes with this, consider it a bonus you can re-sell and put on something that WILL hold your camera!

They don't seem to have any reviews. I really like the carbon fibre specs, but no one having reviewed these things makes me nervous to invest money in them.

yeah, I had the benro aluminum travel angel and it was terrible, so glad I didn't get this at first impulse for a friend

I wonder if this is any improved, but no reviews makes me wary too

What do you mean by terrible? Specs look good to me. And this is not their travel angel series. Can you share your experience with benro?

The load capacity was overly optimistic, vs. conservative measures from RRS and Sirui, for instance. Couldn't even manage 30 second long exposures with a 5D3/D800 with the legs extended. With legs retracted, the base was small to the point of being prone to tipping over without locking the legs in a lower angle. Could see vibrations even with 2 second timer. I had one from a few years back, so I can't speak for the current models.
