    Got mine for 35 quid monfotto one dragged it everywhere is compact fuck spending over 50 quid of one. Non of them are designed to be submerged in drain water, scraped down a wall and fallen on. Expendable better then expensive in this game I reckon

    Too big.

    I absolutely swear by the Manfrotto 718SHB

    Sadly it's discontinued, but I've got two and you can still buy the parts to keep them maintained. I've absolutely battered mine and it's still good.

    There's no suitable manfrotto replacement now at 40cm (Modo is not suitable).

    Urban Junky's got a good but cheap tripod, nopefully he'll provide some info here.

    60cm is 20cm more than the 718SHB above. How's that 'tiny'?

    Actually 60cm makes it fairly 'massive' in my book.

    I've got a Modo and to be honest I miss my old 718SHB.

    Not exactly a Modo, but it's direct replacement.

    I've got the same model Wevsky and it's decent for the money although i just use it for underground stuff now, packs up small and light, a little wobbly on full extension though, got a Redsnapper too which is ace.

    Interesting to see what people here use, some interesting options - certainly cheaper than I was expecting.

    The one I linked does pack up smaller than 60cm, the centre column pulls up then the legs fold all the way up to the head. Likely closer to 40cm when folded fully.
