I have nothing but positives to say about Induro Carbon Fiber. I have the CT213 model, but in your case the 214 would have 4 legs , but if your not quite as tall as me (im 6ft5) then the 1 series would also be great and it would hold the weight as well. I got the 213 specifically because once I graduate from college (commercial photography) I want to go backpacking, and wanted something that's actually tall enough for me but also light.
