There are some info I found on the internet about paying CNY to Alipay ID through wise, it looks like a new service.

It's much cheaper than other ways, and most important, it really works.

Just for your info:

Does anyone know if this would be compatible with the ProMediaGear TR424L?

 

Also, is the Supermount tripod available without a column and if so what would it take to adapt this column to it?

 

reason for edit: grammar

I also thought about a combination of the heavy duty geared column and the Supermount tripod.

But I think the adaption will not be that easy.

 

Only the Supermount tripod with column looks as if the head would be big enough to take the heavy duty geared column, the heads of the other versions do look to tiny to me…

 

But will this tripod be available without column?

I do  it know…

Also I do not have dimensions of the heads to see if it might be possible to adapt.

 

Does anyone know more than us?

We have a designated carbon fiber tripod under way. I have not tested it so no comment now.

Please note due to significant rise in international shipping cost recently(up 50% or more)and dollar depreciation to RMB,the price has to be accordingly adjusted, please add 50 usd or 200 rmb to the total.

This does not apply to paid orders.

The column is about 5kg.
We don't have an estimate of the leg, But I believe it is about the same level.
