Hey guys, gr8 thread. Could someone with a bit of knowledge cast an eye over this and maybe give an opinion,
Deree C300 Head + TS-16 Aluminum Legs + Ground Spreader Tripod System
Im after something heavy and solid with a fair amount of height to mount an HM100 with Rode NT4, Zoom H4n and a 9" monitor, (it is rather top heavy ).
I dont care about weight, tilt and pan only needs to be of reasonable quality.
Im just about at the point of welding up some gal steel myself, LOL.
I can appreciate why alot of you guys spend alot of money to get perfect smooth movement from the heads, I just cant justify spending alot on a tripod that is mostly unmanned and just needs to stay steady.
To sum up,
Heavy, tall, solid as a rock, basic pan and tilt ability.
Please some suggestions.

i have the Sachtler FSB-4 Aluminum tripod. The FSB-4 head is sold
with legs for around $800 I think. I use the Gitzo legs very easy setup.
I highly recommend the FSB-4 I think it would work well with your setup.

Kajito, I am going to try the Satchler FSB-4. Are you able to pan smoothly and when you stop, have no bounce back? This is the main thing I am concerned with.

Andy at first i got very little bounch back but that all depends on how you pan. i've been practicing and got better at it so no more bounch back for me. i get really smooth pans with my Satchler FSB-4 see for yourself.
here's a video i did last month it was cold and windy. see the pan for the opening shot.

I lost one of the Spiked Retractable Feet

I have the Gitzo GT3531LSV Systematic 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs. I lost the one of the Spiked Retractable Feet. When I search for spare parts on Gitzo website it says no spare parts available.
I can't imagine no spare parts for something that can easily fall off and be lost.
