Just yesterday, I was struggling to decide between a new lens or a new sturdy tripod. Today I ordered this tripod, and still have money left for a lens...hallelujah

Note, that it looks like there are two different models: one has "Plus" in it, and the other - doesn't.
The one you link to on B&H site is not "Plus".
"Plus" is listed on B&H as "discontinued":
Vanguard Auctus Plus 323AT 3-Section Aluminum AUCTUS PLUS 323AT

I am not sure what is the difference between the "Plus" and non-"Plus" version, but I suspect the difference might be in the center column.
For the "Plus", B&H lists "geared", "1 section", for the non-"Plus", - "Rapid", "2 sections".
Also, one might be reversible, the other one - not, but I don't know.
I cannot find the non-Plus version on Vanguard website.

I wonder if the non-Plus version has the center column 1) reversible and 2) if i

True that, I missed it...
Yes, the crank for the center column is one of the differences...
You can see other at a glance by changing the tab on your browser from one page to the other...

Yes, that's right, looks like the difference is the center column. The non-plus has a rapid center column while the plus version has a geared center column. Apart from making it easier to raise or lower the camera when loaded with a heavy lens, I don't think there's much of a difference..don't know if the column is reversible in the non-plus one though. Still a very good deal in my opinion nevertheless. The tripod arrives tomorrow, I am already excited

Have fun shooting with it!
I remember the feeling when I switched from an old wobbly thing to a proper tripod with everything locking positively into place... mmmmh!
