Benro Tripods

i am in need for a travel tripod, which will be easy to deploy and most important , very portable

i came accross the Benro C-169 travel angel tripod that collapses to 14", but i have never heard or have seen a benro tripod in real.

can you guys help me on Benros quality and reliability as compared to the Bogen Manfrottos or even on this same particular model C-169 travel angel

I have a Benro C-228. It's not seen heavy use, but is well made and functions as it should. I paid a very good price compared to other carbon fiber tripods of similar build and function. The only thing I wonder about is the spiked feet that are supposed to come with it. I did not find them in the package, and did not find any way of changing the rubber feed to spiked.

Good tripod, would buy it again.
