Strength:

Everything,the lightness,thoughtful design,rubber.stainless steel feet,locking extension mechanism and cast plate.
Price was good compared to other CF tripods.

Weakness:

the mounting plate locking arm is plastic.

Best tripod I've ever used,does what you need when you need it and very well made/strong for your bigger lenses.This tripod is amazingly lightweight and easy to carry long distances-a joy to own!.
The design incorporates rubberized lock wheels to lock the tubes in place which I was concerned about but out in the field it works like a charm and locks solid with surprisingly little pressure.
The feet are adjustable with well designed rubber stoppers which grip uneven surfaces very well-even wet rocks etc, but these can be screwed in revealing heavy gauge stainless steel spikes perfect for digging into turf,soil and sandy surfaces-a great little added extra that works well in practice.
The mounting plate is well designed and holds heavy camera/lens combinations strongly altough the locking lever is made of plastic and although hasn't failed so far doesn't inspire confidence for long term usage.
The neck is also well thought out being a two piece type allowing a shorter neck for ground level shots.
Again the slot mechanisms for angling the legs is very well designed and works brilliantly in practice with 3 settings out to horizontal!.
Overall the best tripod in every way,an absolute joy to use in the most rugged conditions and feather light-just a great MUST HAVE piece of gear.I don't think I'll ever use my Manfrotto 055 ever again!!.
