In my opinion Vinten tripods are, quite simply, the best.

<<<-- Originally posted by Ed Baatz :Just got my Vinten Vision 3 with the mid-level spreader. I don't have the correct spring for using my XL1S yet (B&H is out of stock) but the system feels fantastic... Incredibly smooth pans and tilts and rock-solid support. -->>>

So, you bought the Vision 3 (with ground spreader) plus the additional mid-spreader? When I was on the market, they told me they didn't sell the Vision 3 system tripod with just the mid spreader, it was an added expense. I hope they haven't changed that policy now that I have one! (well, I hope they did for you, thats great! )

They threw in the mid-level spreader for free. <just kidding!!!>

Yes, I bought the "system" which includes the ground level spreader plus the exorbitantly priced mid. The ground spreader would be fine most of the time, but after I put the mid-level spreader on the legs it is really fine. The word "engineered" comes to mind...

Setting up will be even easier with the mid-level. I am very pleased with it and Ken is right... Even with a "jerk" operating the Vision 3 --- it won't jerk... [g]
