    Rock-solid dependability and top-end build quality are the key characteristics of the aluminium-based MTL9361B tripod legs and MH1311-652 ball head.

    Stability is excellent, even at the generous maximum operating height of 190cm. The kit also folds down to 75cm for carrying, and weighs 2.8kg, while maximum load ratings are 8kg for the legs and 10kg for the head.

    Three alternative angles are available for the three-section legs, and the implementation of the centre column’s 180-degree pivot facility is particularly good.

    The ball head comes complete with an adjustable friction damper and separate panning control.

    We say… Overall, this is a great tripod that really is unbeatable at the sub-£200 price point.
