It can't be Gitzo or RRS tripods. Because they don't cost 3x more. What tripods did you compare it against
As I know it, Gitzo has no tripod with a leg that can be detached and becomes a monopod. A Gitzo tripod with similar specs and load would cost $800 to 900, if you buy a monopod, it would be at least $ 300.00. This is just approximate, I don't have/remember an exact number. But if you are really interested, you may have to spend sometime to compare. As I said , I am really impressed with this tri/monopod.
I used to shoot Canon 1DII+500/4 IS and Manfrotto carbonOne 441(that I still have) + arca Swiss ballhead+ sidekick. It worked wonderfully. But this new Sirui tripod and yes I bought a ballhead from them to, using the old side kick. The new setup works much better, much studier and lighter, much shorter for travelling (it has 5 sections instead of 3).
I don't know how long it will last, but from what I see, I will probably not need another one. I have now 4 tripods of different specs for different situations, I never have any problem/repair.
