| p.2 #4 · First Tripod and Head; looking for Feedback |
I have the Feisol CT-3441 with a Acratech GP-S head. This is a slightly smaller tripod than the 3442, and it has a center column. The GP-S is a smaller version of the GP, with a smaller base diameter. So my experience may not exactly match what you will see with your combination, but anyway: there is no problem folding the legs over the GP-S with the center column extended. One leg fits between the knobs on the head, and the other two more or less fit into small fillets on the head that are coincidentally in the right place. The resulting package is small and light, fits into a small suitcase and works well with a hiking backpack.
I'm not sure how well this would work if the tripod did not have a center column. With the head down by the base, the diameter of the head would be a bigger issue and might prevent the legs from folding parallel. The larger GP head might affect this as well.
