On face value they do seem remarkable value for money. The only observation I would make is that they dont go very low. Feisol tripods can go as low as 6 inches and my benbo goes completely flat. Then again, if you don't need that feature then it's not an issue. I'm not overly struck on their pan and tilt head. Seems a little spindly compared to my Manfrotto 029 head.
