VEO 235AB is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel tripod and worth buying The tripod is better than my expectation and it definitely WORTH THIS PRICE. Compared with the Manfrotto Befree tripod I've owned, this VEO costs only a fraction of the price but it is as stable as the befree and also comes with ball head that is removable, making it easy to use. BTW, the Vanguard customer service is also great, they replied to emails fast and friendly. Hope u would enjoy this tripod, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A small lightweight tripod perfect for travel A great, small and lightweight tripod that fits perfectly with my profession as a Travel Photographer. It folds into a small size that fits everywhere from my backpack to my carry-on, and although it's not made of Carbon Fiber, it still is very light and sturdy. I've used it to shoot in various towns in Spain, as well as in wilder locations such as the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. It supported all the lenses I used, even a heavy 70-200mm zoom lens, without any issues. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating The owners manual did not match the product . I had to buy my own tools to get it to work even somewhat properly. If postage wasn't high I would have returned this.
