    SOLD: Manfrotto Tripod and Ballhead NIB

    Okay so it's not exactly backpacking gear, but it is a light(er) weight tripod and ball head I bought specifically for the purposes of backpacking. Long story short the company messed up and sent me two (charged me for them too, @#%ards). They're brand new, never out of the box. You can see them here...

    Iíll sell them for half their retail cost. ($115.00)
    If there's two ways to take my comments, assume it's the lighter and funnier of the two.

    +1. Unless the company has really bad Customer Service, they should refund you the cost of 1 tripod and eat the return shipping charge for their mistake.

    Somethings strange here, I have dealt with adorama for years and never had any issues with returning things. I compare them to REI or Costco, they'll take almost anything back. Especially something unopened and or their fault.

    Dude you must not have even really explained this to the folks at Adorama. They have one of the best Customer Service Depts out there. I'm not saying this is on you or trying to call you out here but something isn't right here.

    Trust me I know what I'm talking about I'm a photographer and have delt with them and B&H for 1000's of dollars worth of gear. Give Adorama a call and work this out with them.

    The company was more than happy to take the tripod back pending I pay shipping and insurance. When I explained that my credit card company told me the first order I placed didn't go through, I resubmitted. They then submitted the order twice, charged me twice, and shipped twice. I requested they pay return shipping, they refused and informed me there would be a restocking fee.

    I decided to sell it at a slight loss (after fees and shipping) out of principal of not sending those *******s their product back. I won't be buying from them again. Period.

    B&H has been wonderful.

    FYI this has been sold. Sorry I haven't responded recently, was a busy week at work and I forgot to set notifications on this thread.
