the good tripod

Been fighting with 3 cheap broken down tripods for years.  These were about 20 bucks each at Walmart and the heads are either stripped or at least a leg or two has to be held in place with duct tape.  Finally upgraded to a Zomei - the illegitimate (and much cheaper) cousin of the Gitzo...which was the workhorse in the industry for this type of tripod back in my photo days.  Note: A Gitzo tripod with a ball head costs almost $1000.  94,97,59,0,C

What makes one worth almost 10x the other?

Tubing and carbon fiber and sometimes just the name. . .

Just a hair over 3/4" so far. Typical for this time of year.
