Bogen Manfrotto Tripod and Fluid Head
Have a Bogen/Mafrotto Tripod and Fluid head that I am getting rid of. The tripod legs are 3011 and the fluid head is 3063.
The legs are in great shape, a few small dings here and there, a couple of dimples on one leg but nothing that affects the extension/retraction. I would rate cosmetically at 7.5-8/10 and functionally 9.5/10. Great set of legs, rated to up to 13lbs, 3 leg sections with turn locks, rubber feet, length collapsed/extended (24.1-71.3). New they sold for almost what I am asking for the entire set ($120).
The fluid head is still perfectly functional, but has seen some use. It takes the RC0 style of release (hexagon), and does NOT come with a quick release plate. The motion is smooth in both horizontal and vertical, and has a pin which either restricts the vertical tilt to roughly 45deg. or when moved to the side, allows for full portrait mode. It is possible to lock the vertical via a thumbscrew to pan only, and lock the hoizontal as well via a slotted bolt (could be replaced by thumbscrew for $4, B&H). Even when fully loosened, nothing is going to tip like a ballhead, light force is needed to make ajustments, so perfect for fine tuning that composition. Takes a 3/8" threaded base. The handle attachment assembly is fully intact but is missing the handle itself, so you can use a pipe, wooden dowel or anything else you like in place of the "branded" handle. The last "issue" is that the tension handle for the vertical adjustment is partially broken, so only your thumb fits vs your entire hand. It is still perfectly functional as is, just not as pretty. I dialed in the friction I wanted once, and then have left it alone. If you wanted all genuine Manfrotto parts, the two pieces that are "broken" add up to about $15. Overall dimensions of the head are 6" high and about 5" in diameter, not counting the handle. Cosmetically it is about a 7/10 (both for broken/replaced parts, and some of the silver is showing thru where the paint has worn off) and functionally it is 9/10 (once you add a handle).
I will accept most forms of payment, and will ship however the buyer requests. The price does not include shipping. I will add whatever options the buyer requests (insurance, tracking etc) and provide proof of shipment. If the shipping estimate is too high, I will refund the difference. I have sold on this site before with good results, and have been a longstanding member here. Possibly interested in trade for legacy glass or a Fuji body/kit.
Pictures upon request, and will try and get them up on the thread soon.
