    It's not a matter of sub standard, it's a matter of getting what you pay for. There's a reason Gitzo is twice the money
    Ever price aircraft grade bolts? They're not the variety from the local Ace. Or military hammers & toilet seats. ;P
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    I never meant to infer that ALL carbon fiber is worthless in the cold...go and stick a gitzo in salt water for a week and report back to me!! horses for courses and there is a tool for every job...tripods and batteries
    just glad my box cameras are just that..a box!! nothing that can't be fixed
    metal tripods tend to go out of whack etc
    the thread was MORE about a learning curve...the slik is actually a damn nice piece for $125. managed to locate a Zone Vi for my next foray into the wilderness!! and I will have an extra battery in my coat

    everyone have a great day....

    No problem with salt water as long as you don't ever need to collapse the Gitzo tripod in the future.

    Don't ask me how I know that.
