As the talk returns to tripods again, you might visit Ken Rockwell's website
and turn to the PMA report. There is a Chinese company that is making Gitzo
knock-offs. They are copies so accurate as to remind one of the old joke
about the man taking a suit to a Hong Kong tailor for an overnight copy-
they are accurate down to the logo. The name is different but not very.
Rockwell says that they are quite good, nearly as good as Gitzos. They await
US distrubution, but probably not for long, legal action notwithstanding.
