    Limited Time Pre-Order Pricing on Feisol Standard Class Tripods

    If you've always dreamed of owning a lightweight, sturdy carbon fiber tripod but were put off by the high cost, now's your chance to get a fantastic deal on a great Feisol Tripod.

    Feisol has just completed the re-design of their Standard Class series of carbon fiber tripods. They've improved both the design and the materials used in building these tripods.

    And here's the best news, if you order before 5:00pm Tuesday March 18, 2008 you can have the new, improved Feisol Standard Class models at the old prices.

    But, you have to act fast. Once this offer expires, the new retail pricing (necessary to cover the added cost of the higher quality raw materials) on these models will go into effect.

    Here's the details on this special VERY limited time offer:

    Feisol CT-3301:
    Through 3/18/08 = $170.00 + shipping
    After 3/18/08 = $215.00 + shipping

    Feisol CT-3401:
    Through 3/18/08 = $175.00 + shipping
    After 3/18/08 = $219.00 + shipping

    Feisol CT-3402:
    Through 3/18/08 = $165.00 + shipping
    After 3/18/08 = $209.00 + shipping

    You can view complete specs and photos of these models at:
    http://reallybigcameras.com/Feisol/Standard_Class.htm

    A table comparing all current model Feisol tripods can be seen at:

    Even at full price, the new, improved Feisol Standard Class tripods represent an outstanding value in quality carbon fiber tripods. At the special pre-order prices, nothing else comes close to offering the same performance for the money.

    If you have any questions, or would like to place a pre-order to take advantage of this special pricing, please send me an email at: sales@reallybigcameras.com.

    Sincerely,

    Mike,

    Thanks for your interest in Feisol tripods from Really Big Cameras.

    All three standard series models are load rated for 9kg (19.8lbs.) compared to the Bogen/Manfrotto 3221's load rating of 6kg (13.2lbs.).

    The differences in the Feisol Standard Class models concern the number of leg sections (3 - for the CT-3301 and 4 for the CT3401 and CT-3402) maximum height (the CT-3301 is the tallest and the CT-3402 the shortest - unless you add the optional two-section center column) and folded length (CT-3301 is longest, CT3402 is shortest).

    In terms of duplicating, or slightly improving, the specifications of your Bogen/Manfrotto, the CT-3301 with the optional center column, is the most similar. It's slightly taller and has a very similar folded length.

    Of course, the big difference is that it's 40% lighter (3 lbs. with the optional center column compared to 5 lbs. for the Bogen/Manfrotto).

    I just want to know if ESPN broadcasts these tournaments where they use "Tournament Class" tripods. I'm imagining a contest where competitors put heavier and heavier cameras on their tripods to advance from one round to the next, and whichever tripod holds the most weight wins. Or maybe it's a kind of biathalon with the competitors carrying Deardorffs and tripods on skis.

    David,

    "Tournament Class" refers to the quality of the carbon fiber material used in the leg tubes of this product. There are different grades, or quality levels, of carbon fiber materials. The higher grades are more expensive to produce and are, therefore, often reserved for use in products used in serious athletic competition where every ounce and every second are critical. Such high grade carbon fiber materials are used in high end tennis rackets, golf clubs, bicycle frames, race cars, kayaks, racing yachts, etc. Prior to getting into the tripod business Feisol was a supplier of carbon fiber tubes for use in other applications. Their "Tournament Class" was the first in their line to use the higher grade (stronger AND lighter) carbon fiber tubes. Hence the product name.

    As someone who has carried a large format camera outfit while skiing, I certainly appreciate the weight savings of a carbon fiber tripod. I still have painful memories of the "good" old days and getting smacked in the back of the head by my 10 lb. metal tripod whenever I did a face plant (which was rather frequently in my case). In my experience, a lightweight carbon fiber tripod is much more cranium friendly.
