Hey I am not trying to change your mind, I don't care if you want one or not, I was just pointing out the difference in manufacturers spec and your by eye assessment. The truth is I half expected you to come back and say they had sent you a regular 190XPROB by mistake as that spec does match your estimate.
The model on the box was right, it was the model with the horizontal center post. That feature worked fine.
Amazon had it on their Gold Box deal with just a few minutes left to buy one, I didn't have time to really research it. There were a lot of poor ratings for it quality wise on Amazon, but most were good.
I would not have bought it if they had specified the height as being with center post up. I have 4 tripods now, but was looking for one a bit lighter, since mine run very heavy. I also thought that I'd use the horizontal post for macro, but that would not work out well even with the legs retracted because there was a lot of spring in the joint. I put the center column in its horizontal position, about 5 oz is all that it took to tip the tripod over, so the legs need to be spread out further to be practical and not risk my gear.
I've had a number of the old Bogen / Manfroto tripods and all were sturdy and excellent.
