What's your tripod?
Do you have a brand preference?
What type of photography do you mainly do with it?
How often do you use it?
I have a Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 with a Manfrotto 496RC2 Ball Head. I wanted a good medium between portability and sturdiness since I travel a lot but also do a lot of landscapes and architecture. I really wanted carbon fibre but I couldn't bring myself to putting down the money for a Gitzo lol.
