    What do you mean by "good"?

    It'll stand up. It'll hold your camera.

    I don't know how much weight it'll hold, but surely enough to hold your camera and most mid-sized lenses.

    I don't know if it'll be wobbly or not.

    Well i just tested it in store. Its pretty sturdy. Obviously I havent taken it out into the field yet because i havent bought it.
    I mean price wise: Is it a good deal (like my title asks)

    My wife and I are one a budget and we found some nice equipment for a great price. www.amvona.com has a bunch of different things and they even have an ebay store. I bought 2 tripods a monopod, three heads (including 1 pistol grip head), and I got a 5-way reflector disc. I got the pistol grip head which is totally comparable to the Bogen pistol grip head but instead of paying $125 for the head I paid $20 with shipping. The items may be direct copies of popular products, but I swear that they are absolutely just as good as the name brand stuff just cheaper. Go to EBay and type in Amvona in the store finder and you will save a fortune.
