Hi all, I just received my Gitzo GT-2531 tripod, it's is amazing how light it is. I used to have a Manfroto with an integrated ballhead that is 100 times heavier than this tripod, I even thing that the tripod is lighter than the Manfroto monopod I have. Carbon fiber is really amazing.
Also got a BH-55 RRS Ballhead, which is an amazing ballhead, you can really trust that won't move. The only critic I have, is that after paying a lot for it, the operation manual is just a simpl photocopy with a low quality setting that is also not so well centered and some borders are not legible. I think they should really print it, it feels like a low quality "made in China" product
I just wanted to share the info in case of somebody is intrerested in getting a new tripod and/or ballhead.
