Sirui T-025x Travel Tripod Review

Value and Competition

Like we said originally, the 'travel tripod' niche is no longer one - nearly every brand is jumping on the portable bandwagon. But just because they are travel tripods in name, does that mean they are competition for the Sirui T-025x?

Here is a comparative image demonstrating the size of the Sirui T-025x and Benro's flagship Travel Angel tripod. The T-025x is the bottom tripod.

Considering how class leading the Sirui T-025x is in compactness without any real sacrifices in features--and boasting a proven load capacity punching above and beyond its weight and price range in spite of that diminuitiveness--we can't help but feel that Sirui's flagship travel tripod is an incredible value, especially compared to the competition.
