Without a doubt, this is a professional tripod. Quite heavy, though it does come in a sturdy, ballistic nylon carry bag. My only complaint is that it smells funny! Odd, I know, but it has a strong metallic smell. I had to move it from my office because it bothered me so much.
5/5 legs 5/5 head* I'm primarily using this for video with a little bit of photography on the side. Normal APS-C dslr for photo, but very full video rig (~12lbs/5.5kg). Considering one of the primary uses for this is tripod is heavy hunting scopes, tripod handles my video setup like a champ. Entire tripod is fairly heavy (definitely not carbon fiber), but I much prefer solid and stable over convenience. *Very minor stick when you start but once you're moving fluid smooth. The initial stick is annoying but most of what I need to shoot with a tripod is either locked off or has starts edited out [you can't get around stick short of a true viscous fluid head (Vinten, Sachtler, etc) which are roughly a $mortgage payment$].
