I stand by on my Promaster recomendation, all metal fittings and very nicely 
built.  Also has twist lock legs, which I like better than the lever locks 
on my Bogen, which are always getting loose at the wrong times.  Also has a 
hook on the bottom of the column so you can add weight if needed.

If you can't afford a Manfotto or Gitzo, geta  Benro, it's much higher
quality than Induro, IMHO
