Does anybody know how the stability of these compares? I'm aware of the good/bad points of the 3021, and I've heard good about Fiesol but I havent heard anyone compare them to the mainstream pods.

It looks like a promising lightweight tripod, but I dont want to give up any stability.

Bought the 3021, its the safest bet without spending $500.

Or you could get the Amvona AT-858. Virtually identical to the Manfrotto 3021, for 1/3 the price. It's a Chinese-made copy of the Manfrotto 3021 leg set, and a good one. I got 2 of them, each for under $50. I put a ball head on one, and a fluid head on the other, and I am quite pleased with them both. Not a lightweight, but neither is the Manfrotto. For light weight carbon fiber leg sets, the Feisols have good reputations. But only you can decide if saving 2 pounds is worth spending an extra $200 on the legs.
