Why would you let somebody that works on tripod and heads everyday touch your gear, when you can do it yourself? Why would you let a technician with greater experience and knowledge part you from your money? Why would you blindly take a part a tripod or a head without understanding the intriquacies? Why indeed!
We work on tripods, head and monopods everyday. We clean and check the functions of even our simplest repairs. We pride ourselves on doing this job at least as good or BETTER than the manufacturers representatives. We have far more experience than you, and if you don’t have a decent working knowledge, then you are bound to get lost.
Get lost on what? Video, ball heads, Neotech; these are the hardest to repair if you have no experience. Plus, these types of products often have hidden springs that can and do shoot out under pressure. Replace a knob or a lever? Yes you can. Replace the tension rods in a a ball head. No.
If you are having problems, or need a tune up; or a repair, send your name, address, daytime phone and email address along with your tripod to:
108 Garner Road
Spartanburg, SC 29303
Once we have it, we will evaluate it and contact you. Please send us your daytime phone so we can reach you during business hours.
Lastly, if we are repairing your Manfrotto Product; we are recycling all broken parts and scrap articles. Almost nothing goes into the trash if we can help it.
The Manfrotto OffRoad gear is a series of lightweight walking sticks, tripods and huge backpacks that are great for the outdoors. Not just for photographers, but for any serious hiker. But you can tell they were designed by photographers.
The backpacks are large, and while they have a compartment with padded dividers on the bottom for camera gear, the top area is large enough for your camping essentials. Easily able to accommodate a change of clothes, food for a few days, stove, camera 2 lenses and loads of other stuff!
The walking sticks are adjustable in height and are able to be taken apart for proper cleaning. The left side walking stick has a hidden camera screw that make it into a monopod. The stick itself is very lightweight, so the weight of the camera it can support is low (about 5 lbs) it does a ver good job. There are rubber grips over the screw so you can use it as a standard, easy to grip walking stick. There is a large, easy to turn locking wheel that is accessible, even while wearing gloves. The screw is standard to almost any camera made (in the last 15 years at least).
There are even tripods that weight under 3 lbs. Designed like the walking stick, the tripods are very light weight and easy to carry. Maximum load is low, under 5 lbs is what I felt comfortable with, but story for what it is; not a 4 pound tripod! Spikes on the bottom of the feet ensure a solid grip on firm clay, ice and rocks; while there are rubber boots that you put on when you are indoors and do not want to mar the floors.
Available in Red, Green and Blue; the OFFROAD gear is easy to see and use.
Right now all OffRoad Waking Sticks include a FREE mobile phone adapter, so you can use the sticks with most cameras or mobile phones.
