Even with discount this is a bad deal?
Well, the head is crap, and the legs I can imagine are just like all the other "carbon fiber" China made ones we sell. I wouldn't be surprised if the legs were graphite with a layer of carbon fiber on top.

So basically you're paying $100 for some heavy ass "carbon fiber" tripod that you still need a head for, of questionable quality.

I'd save up a little more money and look at some different alternatives if it were my money, I don't see this as a deal.

i think they sell this one at best buy too; it's junk. the legs aren't very robust (as evidenced by the max load of 6.1 lbs).
