A few questions about the Oben CT 2491

Hi, I have a few questions about the Oben CT-2491 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs (B&H # OBCT2491):

1.) It looks like there's a sale right now, how long is it going on?

2.) This might be a dumb one, but if the price goes down in the next few weeks--after I make the purchase--will you match it?

3.) And, this one is important, do you sell an accessory short center column, like the Giottos YTC281 Short Center Column (B&H # GIYTC281), only for the Oben CT-2491?

4.) Now that I've asked that last one, what do I do for Oben parts? Their website doesn't seem to function with my browsers.

My mistake, it's the Oben CC-2491 that I've had my eye on. And it is not on sale at this time, so disregard my first question. I am still curious if I can order a second center column though.

Thank you in advance for you assistance.

The CC-2491 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs from Oben has a Split center column for low angle shooting. The CC-2491's rapid center column extends with a twist of the butterfly knob. For protecting your camera when the column is retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper under the center-post collar. Steel locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten a camera head more securely. For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column can be split into two sections with the provided Allen key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For a faster method, the center column is also easily reversible. These features are especially ideal for macro and close-up photography. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the center column.

I've reached out to the company regarding your comments about their web site. For now, if you need service or parts please call Oben (Distributed By - Gradus Group LLC) Tel: (212) 594-2353 or Email:
