I've been looking for a more solid tripod than the one I'e used for the past 20 years or so. Looking at what's available locally, that proably means Manfrotto or Unomat. There is one Unomat model that I have seen - with a 3 axis head - which looks solid enough and should do what I would like it to.

Anybody have experiences, good or bad with these?

it seems that "locally" for you is somewhere in europe. unomat is pretty much a european brand. many years ago and i do mean many they were here in the US. not at all these days that i can see. so can only comment on manfrotto. manfrotto is about the best built, versatile,and stable tripod available for the money in this country today. most of the mid and upper end models are highly repairable when and parts are actually available too. so as an investment in equipment it leads the pack.

"locally" is actually in South Africa, so we get a lot of stuff from all over the world. I just noticed a nice looking 3-axis Unomat a little cheaper than the Manfrottos.
