    So I dont use a tripod that often to be honest, some times when going hiking with my wife I will take it to take at least one pic of us together and for moon shots but I think my current combination needs to be upgraded as either the head the both are not up to par.
    In any case, for $200 or less ...what do you think of this Vanguard combo? The heaviest lens it will use will be the FD 300mm 2.8 with a couple of extenders.
    I was looking at one that was able to become a monopod too but didnt look that strong.

    My current one is a Manfrotto 3001N with a Sunpak 620 Pistol Grip (I am sure this one is the super weak link). So let me know if I need to upgrade both or just the head please.
    I wouldnt mind a lighter easier to handle tripod or at least one that is smaller when packed.
