    I have a kick ass Bogen but it is too large and heavy (even when compacted) for travel or hiking.

    I want something small, light BUT sturdy. I read some reviews on Amazon and most lightweight tripods are flimsy.

    I have no budget. :p

    Most people recomend the travel angel but I like the Feisol CT-3441S.

    That Jusino looks great, and I found your thread about it on POTN which was very helpful.... But the real question is how do we get one of these here in the US? That model isn't listed on Ebay as far as I can see. Found a company that does sell/ship it here, but it is $317 shipped, which is a bit much. Have you seen it anywhere else online?

    With today's exchange rate it is 308 USD locally, so 317 isn't that bad considering it costs about 10 USD a pound to mail something to/from the US from Taiwan.

    If you can't find Jusino, Horusbennu is the same thing. Maybe you can find it.
