Well, after taking the tripod out for a hike on Saturday and for shooting at Crater Lake on Sunday - I am even more pleased. It took me a few minutes to learn how to work it since I've never used a decent tripod but once I got it down it was easily managed. The extendable spikes in the feet work great in snow and on ice and the removable plate was fantastic and so much easier than screwing and unscrewing constantly.
I'm sure time will tell if it was a good buy and will last but it more then exceeds my needs and expectations at this time.
Imagine what you could learn if you could learn to imagine.

So after roughly 3 months with my Dolica, I figured I'd update my review. I have taken it on numerous hikes and used it in snow, ice, sand, rivers and the Pacific Ocean. I've swam through frigid rivers with it and accidentally dropped it down a steep 20 foot embankment and it has held up and preformed like a champ. So far I have seen no rust, no loosening of the legs, or had any other problems. . . . . though the drop down the embankment did cause several scratches.
I did have to replace the quick release plate because I lost it at the beach and for as small as they are - those little things aren't cheap ($12).
