    Yeah, I put my weight on mine too, done that for years. The camera store people look at you funny when you go in and raise their tripod up, and then put a large amount of body weight on it to see how badly it flexes.

    Greg the great thing about building your own is that you know that it won't flex!!! I think mine comes in with the 6x7 Majestic head at about 14-15 lbs. I did find a great case for it at Big lots!! Some kind of storage thing. Still can't figure out what it's for. It cost me $ 5.00!!The tripod fits in perfectly. It even has a place where I can put a strap/ sling to carry it. Kind of like building but not quite. I am going to learn to sew my own storage bags for my lenses and cameras. It is for me all part of the process.
