Some info from the site
"This is a 4 section professional aluminium tripod that is both robust and lightweight - Ideal for travelling and hiking as it folds to a very compact size.
The center pole is reversable allowing your camera to be positioned close to the ground OR you can change to the optional short center column that is included to get you 'low down'. It also has a sprung loaded hook to hang a weight from to give more stability to the tripod.
The tripod comes with a quality padded case that has an extremely comfortable carry strap
Redsnapper tripods set the standard for professionals and advanced amateurs. The aluminium range has been completely revised with new features and materials in order to offer lighter, faster and more stable supports.
The Anti Leg Rotation system is now available on all aluminium models. Thanks to this and the 'twist and grip' locks these tripods are now incredibly quick to operate and the height can be easily and precisely adjusted. One grip and turn locks or unlocks each section.
The rubber foot has the advantage of converting to a metal spike for secure footing by simply screwing it up its fixing.
I've got the Redsnapper legs and 3 way head and pricewise it has to be one of the best bits of kit I've bought for my camera so far.
I used my RS 283 legs in the field (actually in a field) for the first time recently. For the dosh, must be hard to beat. I do have a more solid tripod, but weighs a similar amount to a T80 tank and probably cost 10 times the amount when new. The 283 really is a bit of a bargain.
