It is rare to receive such an attractive, padded, and useful carrying case like the one that comes with the tripod. My Gitzo did not come with a case and I had to purchase one to fit because I prefer to carry my tripods in a case. So kudo's to Meopta for providing an excellent case.
Quite surprisingly, the tripod package also includes an extra quick release plate, an extra head handle, screw in spikes for the legs, and allen wrenches. Handles can mount for both left or right handed users. Even more astonishing is that an additional head is included! So, you get a ball head for photo and traditional (fluid) head for a scope.
I am not aware of another tripod that comes in such a complete and useful package!.
The quality of construction seems quite good for the short time that I used it in the field. The twist releases on the legs worked smoothly and locked tightly. As a carbon fiber tripod it is relatively light but not as light as some tripods. The heads worked smoothly and seems to be made well. The construction for the entire tripod and components seemed to be of excellent quality for a tripod in this price range. However, I did have a couple of very minor things happen. One was that a rubberized strip that is glued to the quick release plate came unglued and I lost it. This would be easy to correct with a better glue. The other was that with extended use the tightening mechanism that keeps the head from wobbling around would come loose. Not a big deal, just have to re-tighten it, but I have not had that issue with other tripods.
Another good feature is that one leg converts to a monopod!
This tripod just about has it all in one package!
I would seriously consider the Meopta if you are looking for a reasonably priced, good quality, tripod with lots of extras. You just might find it hard to beat!
