I just bought this a week and a half ago for $79 and love it. I thought it was a steal at that price. I haven't found a decent carbon fiber tripod anywhere near this price.

Why is it still heavy at 4.72 lbs?

Most of that weight is the ball head, the carbon fiber legs are extremely lightweight. I wouldn't call it heavy, but if you wanted to make it super lightweight, you can replace the head. It can be unscrewed and swapped with a different type of head.

There are a couple of photos that show this on the Amazon page, and someone mentions in the questions section that he sometimes uses a different head.

I can't speak to the PrimaPhoto. It does look like a good deal. This Neewer is very stable. From what I can tell, the difference is the PrimaPhoto is $22 cheaper, 12" shorter (15" with the extension), about 1 pound lighter, and aluminum vs. carbon fiber. I'm 6'3 so I need the extra height, but that wouldn't be a factor for some people.

The thread title of the PrimaPhoto says 54", I assumed it was accurate.

Nope. The product description is wrong. They're measuring without extending the column. Which "ideally" is how you should use it for stability but by the time my lens is mounted it's tall enough either way. I hate that the info was wrong In their product description. They'd have sold a few more and I wouldn't look at it and think I got shorter.

Good info, I'm glad you were at least able to correct it in this thread.
