    Brian,

    I am not sure about the model 4400. Is it of the double leg construction like the 4800 or is it of single leg construction? I found one of their heavier single leg tripods with the double extension geared center shaft and the geared head that supposedly weighs 12.4 lbs. So I would guess somewhere around that weight. Most Majestics are rock solid and heavy.

    this is a shot of the one I am looking at possibly buying. it is a really good deal, and I already have the Majestic head. Just worried about it being too heavy... [​IMG]

    Brian,

    That is what they call their double leg design and it would probably be heavier then the one that I mentioned. I would imagine with head that this will top 15 lbs., maybe a couple above that. It will hold most anything that you want to set on it.

    Looks like I'm going to have to bring my head / 8x10 with me when I check it out. I'd like something very sturdy since I do a lot of shooting near the ocean, on sand in the wind...
