Hands on can tell you a lot about the construction, size and weight. Of course, brick and mortar stores are getting harder and harder to find...
    I agree that going to a Brick & Mortar store would be best, But I live in Erie Pa, our only dedicated Camera store closed up shop about 1 yr ago. I would have a 1 1/2 hr drive to Buffalo, Pittsburgh, or Cleveland, and even then it is a Crap Shoot. Buying from Walmart or Best Buy is a Non-Starter.

    Yeah, I know I'm lucky to have a good camera store nearby.

    ****UPDATE****

    I have decided Not to get the ProMaster Tri-pod... I am Now looking at the Manfrotto MK290XTA3-BHUS. From my research it has 4 Stars at B&H and looks to fulfill all of my needs now, and in the future.

    That should work very well for you - Manfrotto has a great name. I still have my original tripod, a Bogen Manfrotto 3021 tripod with a 3047 head that is over 20 years old. It's heavy (combo weighs about 10 pounds), very tall extending to almost 70", and still in excellent shape. I rarely carried it around due to its weight. Since there are other less expensive tripods out there, maybe some day I will use it in a studio although I've given some thought to just trading it in.

    Good luck with your choice!
