Don't buy this. Literally the first time we tried to pivot the center column to the 90 degree position, an internal plastic piece snapped and sent the center column, ball head, and $[$]worth of camera and lens flying out of the tripod legs.

I bought this tripod for use with a spotting scope, a chronograph and a camera. It came fully assembled and ready to go. I have used it in all 3 roles and it works better than expected. The next test is to take it on a hiking trip and see how it performs in difficult terrain.

Very nice well built and sturdy tripod. This is the second one I have purchased, like the new color schemes!

Got the 3021/055 legs the same year I was married, 2001. The legs were great for a long time, but a slight bump broke the lower leg collar. The reason I bought these legs was that I figured they would last forever, no more than I uses them, or if they did break, parts would be had.

Just like any other piece of equipment, this tripod needs to be handled with care and separate gestures.When quickly lifting the center arm up to tilt it, it can snap off, which does cause it to disassemble.But it's not a hassle to reassemble it, and do the gesture slowly.

This unit is really good in almost every way. The only issue I have is that the height adjustable center colum never really fully locks. Even when you screw the clamp down as hard as you can a bump will knock it out of wack. There is always a slight back and forth on the pan axis.

I have had my MT055xpro3 tripod for a couple weeks now and have put it to some good use on recent outings to Yellowstone NP. It's a sturdy mount and has no problem handling the weight of my 7D MkII w/ 150-600mm lens.

Just as another reviewer experienced, I also had a leg fall off while extending the legs. It was due to the weight of the legs, and the force that is experienced when you let the legs slide open and suddenly stop at the end.

I had a set of 055XPROB for years. Using them daily doing real estate photography (3-6 shoots a day). They were great, a tank, loved them. Unfortunately, they ran out of gas recently so I needed new legs. Figured I'd stay with Manfrotto and go with what replaced these. Wish I hadn't!
