Has anyone heard of or tried this tripod?

http://www.thetwistergroup.com/produ...520D18194.html

Perhaps someone did see it and compared with other types. It resembles the Libec M20, and it's probably made in China.

The price is quite low for a tripod that can take 15.4 lbs, has a fluid head and can fold to 28". Is it for real?

If it is too good..... I've never heard of this brand before. I wouldn't
buy it unless I could test it. A good tripod goes a long way to
good footage....

It looks like one of those cheap and nasty Libec ones. I would stay clear. The fluid action is dreadful.

Try and get some cheaper legs and at least a 501 head, depending on what camera you have.

Edit: I kinda skim read your post, I see now that you mentioned about the Libec bit.
