Yea or Nay?
It depends. The head is not impressive, it's heavy, it has flip levers (some love them, I don't). I think you could do better for better if you waited for rebates. But it will certainly be sturdier than a cheaper tripod. For that price, it's expensive as an aluminum tripod. I think you can do better.

44.1 pounds, nice! Too bad that none of the manufactures clearly state at what height the legs are good for the rated weight!
Manfrotto nor Gitzo are not very clear about it, unless I am missing something.
Let us know how the pod works out.
