Default Sunpak Ultra 757TM ??

Having absorbed earlier comments assisting me in this decision, I found the Sunpak Ultra 757TM - a tank of a tripod that also converts into a monopod (and not by simply putting a velcro strap around the closed legs).

I also came across MtnGal's words of advice: "There's a saying with tripods - there's cheap, there's sturdy and there's lightweight. You can only choose 2 out of the three. Decide which one you can do without and that will go a long way toward helping you decide which tripod to get."

My needs are squarely in the "sturdy and cheap" category, so the 757 at 6lbs and $67 seems to cover those bases. The 73" height is perfect, too.

I like the tripod/monopod capability but I also know that in other items (tools) such flexibility comes at the cost of performance.

If you've used or seen the 757, please let me know how it's worked for you. If you have sucess or failure with similarly sized/priced tripods please let me know your experience as well.

As always, thanks for the help!
