I have a nearly-new Gitzo carbon fiber, 1548 Giant (6 leg sections, extends to about 8 feet tall) for sale. It is only a about 3/4 pound heavier than the regular 4-section 5-foot tall 1548 and you don't need to extend the last 2 or 3 leg sections for normal use, but they're there if you do need the height. I used it three times for a project and no longer need it. It never saw the sand or dirt, and is in like-new shape, complete with box and all the original stuff.
Asking $650, paypal is fine. Email me at jbflesher-at-mn-dot-com if interested.
