Default Night stalker shooting tripod????

Doing some looking online for a tripod and stumbled on this, never heard of them. Seems like a good deal to me, but I’m not “in the know” about these. Any info from the professionals?

Ive got one. No complaints, but they left the manufacturers name on there. You can get the same Tripod here from amazon https://www.amazon.com/XILETU-Carbon...93302829&psc=1

I bought the Amazon one and put my pig saddle on it. I love it. Seems to be very well made and sturdy

My advice ... read the tripod reviews before purchasing. Others have reported poor QC with cast screws that strip and plastic leg locks. Made in China so you get what you pay for. Instead of spending $200 on a Chinese knock-off, I’d search eBay, Pawn Shops, Craigslist, etc.. and buy a used Manfrotto (Italy) or Gitzmo (France) tripod for $75-150. Then add the pig saddle for $99. The cheap imitation products work, but sooner or later they will break/fail from use in the field

I've been running one hard for 2 years and it is great.
