This is a Gitzo Traveller Tripod and Ballhead Series 2 kit; the model number is GK2580TQR, which consists of the GP2540T legs and the GH2780TQR head.
The Gitzo Traveller provides the lightest and smallest full size tripod available. It has won design awards for its unique ‘fold up’ design where the legs actually reverse over the center post and ballhead, folding to a 17 inch length weighing only 3.1 pounds for both the tripod and ballhead.
Unfolded it expands to a 60 inch maximum height (51 inches without the center post extended). We find it appropriate for holding an SLR and 70-200 f2.8 size lens; with the center post NOT extended it would be OK for a 300 f2.8.
This copy shows light wear (some minor scratches and scuffs), and some of the twist-lock joints feel/sound slightly gritty when turned, but everything functions flawlessly.
