Got an alert that this is the lowest it's every been according to CCC.
There was a primaphoto tripod just went first page but this is another option for those looking for a taller tripod at 65" yet can still hold a max of 17 pounds. The dolica is also well rated at 4.4/5 with over 1000 reviews (fake spot A if that matters)
Some other comparisons:
Weights are similar 3.64lb for primaphoto and 3.5lb for dolica (greater closed height at 25").
The primaphoto tripod also has a 3 yr warranty and this dolica has a 5 year warranty.
This tripod is not arc swiss compatible. There is a hack though https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RK2D...m_sw_su_dp
for those who are interested yet still want that compatibility.
