SUNPAK ULTRA 7000 TM Tripod. I think I purchased the one that I have from Best Buy. They are sold in many places throughout the store world. I just looked it up on the net and it is there as flashy as it can be for a product. I wanted to give it a half star since I am so pleased with it but lo and behold I could not make any reviews about it. The one that I have, and from the reviews I read, similar problems also occurred with other users, the head handle broke on the one that I have last evening. Replacement parts? I do not think it can be done. I bought it because it looked heavy-duty but it is like many other items made with heavy-duty cheap plastic to make it look pretty to the eyes.
I no longer will buy a product and say nice things about it unless I am 100% happy with it.
