You are not going to find much love, if any, for Induro here. A little research on the internet will bring up some good reviews, but the answer you will most likely get is that it is not as good as the Gitzo. You will probably also be told that you must buy an RRS or you are not getting the best.
I would like to see some reviews by forum members that objectively rate the Induro, Feisol, and Sirui tripods so we all can benefit from the experience. these threads usually turn into Chinese product bashing.
I just ordered a Feisol CT-3371 (pretty big, 3 section anti-rotation legs, no center column, $414 shipped from Amazon) and will post my thoughts after I use it for a while. I also will be using an Acratech GV 2. I considered the Induro CT 313, but with an optional short column (which I would need) it's almost $200 more. The additional 5 year warranty for registering on line is nice, but I am giving the Feisol a shot. I like the fact that it has no center column but one can be added as an option.
Based on what I have read, I would not hesitate to try the Induro, even if the Gitzo is "better". For me it's a matter of meeting my needs and the only way to tell is to give it a try. I've been told this means I have low expectations . Oh well.
Read up here on Induro VS the better tripods, but it's lots of opinon with little fact:
Feisol is not even from China. And I don't see any threads here about Feisol that turn into Chinese product bashing. Feisol have always had a rather good reputation here at FM. Not as good as RRS or Gitzo. But a lot better than the "normal Chinese copy brand".
Induro is one of the better Chinese tripods brands. But it cost way too much in the Western countries. I stay in S.E.Asia a third of the year, and I can buy every Induro tripod for nearly half the price there. Sirui is not at all as good as the other two brands here.
