Is this your best tripod?

Asked by: JarJar Binks
Hello- Thank you for your question. The Alta CA series is a good series of tripod, but it is not our best series. If you want the best of what we have to offer we would suggest looking at our Alta Pro series of tripod.

Other than a little difference is folded height and leg diameter, what is the difference between 203 CA AGH pistol grip and the 204 and 233?

Asked by: BDHO
Hello- The only difference between these tripods is folded height, leg diameter, and weight of the tripod.
