Pros:
Cons:

i had the 1127 which is similar without the lever...i bought it for hiking /travel for it's light and is made out of carbon thus don't stick to your fingers in inclement weather; after a few outings i decided to retire it for it's prone to wind shakes, it's just 2 flimsy to stand up against windy conditions even w my backpack hanging on the hook in the center column...i replaced it w a hakuba carbon and i'm much happier since..

Pros: Light, variable leg spread
Cons:
Price Center column limits "low shots"... a short column is avalable

The first time I opened the tripod, one of the tabs setting the leg spread broke off. Not for heave lenses but a great hiking tripod. When the legs are set a little wider it is quite stable. Fully extended and with the center column up stability is OK but not great. I have the non geared center column and replaced it with a short column. Works great for macro.
