The new line of tripods has several different price points to meet varied budgets and purposes. There are five tripods for the new line, of which the three lower cost options all share the same maximum load weight of 22 pounds, but vary in their own weights from 2.5 to 4 pounds. The two higher cost tripods weigh slightly more but allow for a 44 and 55 pound maximum load respectively.  The specs and descriptions for each new offering can be seen below.
