To anyone who has been comparing this tripod with others such as links to Amazon...do not include a head. You have to buy the head separately. THIS ONE from Costco includes a head... AND as someone said an extra quick release plate. Not to mention the very heavy and durable case. Yes... it's a "soft" case... but it's a heavy, thick nylon.
AND... as of yesterday. Costco marked it down to $99.97 with an asterisk noted on the price. The "7" in the price, and the asterisk means it's clearance and the last time the price is going down.

This is probably better than the carbon fiber sunpak ball head pistol grip one Costco carried for a while, right? I have that one but its sad that the pistol grip can't support my camera, battery grip....AND flash..... So I have to shorten one leg to get it on portrait mode.................
It's quite a bit lighter than the new manfrotto one....I think I'm gonna exchange mine tomorrow

|muffd||I bought this tripod yesterday at Costco for $129. The only problem I have with it is that you can't fit the tripod in the bag without removing the handles. Strange that they would sell this with it. I'm debating to see if I can overlook this since I actually like the tripod itself.|

"This offer excludes National Geographic Tripods and heads, CompactSer ies, 390 Series, 290 Aluminum Series, MY Series and Monopods."
Since this is a 290 series aluminum, I don't think it will work.
Here is a link to their website:

|chrispy442||I wonder if this deal can be combined with the current rebates of $25 and $10. With the current price of $135 this could be had for $100. That would be pretty insane. I'm debating of selling the tripod I have for this...|

Went to costco and noticed it's $15 off! On sale for $135!

I was surprised to see this at my local Costco a few weeks ago and bought it.. It is a nice and sturdy tripod.
The only issue is the carry bag, it doesn't really fit the tripod (search the internet, you'll find the same complain from the reviews).
But overall, it's worth $150 for a great tripod.

Amazon has the tripod only for $120.

Same thing as this here?
I've been looking for a good deal on a sturdy, trustworthy basic tripod - so I'd love to hear suggestions from members for something in this price range.
